no wlan wusb54gc
Hi, my computer crashed a couple of days ago because of low battery. When I went to reboot, there was no internet signal or signal icon on the network manager. I have a wusb54gc linksys wifi adapter. It was working perfectly for months, since I installed ubuntu. When I type iwconfig I only get eth0 and lo, no wlan. A similar incident happened to me when my wlan interface changed from wlan1 or something similar to wlan2. My questions are how do I know if my adapter is installed (should work staight out of the box) and working properly? Also, how do I get wlan to show up?
ps: I even reinstalled ubuntu and I still get no wlan. Could this be a hardware issue?
