First question would be what version of Ubuntu? The next would be what model of the Airlink 101?? The different models have different chipsets, and therefore, different drivers.

Some good starting points would be:

Wild guess...do you have an Atheros based wired NIC in your system??

Yes. Leave the USB dongle unplugged, and do an lscpi and lsusb commands. Look in them for anything that looks like a network device. Chances are, your wired device will show up.

However, looking at the Ubuntu forums, your model # is posted, along with a solution, instructions, and a firmware file:
