Can you elaborate on that a bit? What is wusb600n? Is it some kind of usb modems? Have you used to connect using windows? If you have used it on windows, how do you do that? Do you use a dial up on windows where you provide user name and password? Or is it always connected types? What is the connection type of the modem?

sorry, ya the wusb600n is a wireless USB network adapter by Linksys. I do use also on my windows OS and it is always online. It connects wireless to a router which is in my living room. I am on the same computer doing a dual boot using two separate hard drives but when I go onto the Ubuntu it doesn't know this network adapter is in my USB drive or something. Thank you

Seems to me you need ndiswrapper, or try to use the methode described in this thread.

Kind regards
