Wireless LAN setup? USB linksys wubs11?


I'm VERY new to linux. I just installed LBA-Linux last night. I'm having trouble getting the system to see my wireless LAN. I have a Linksys WUSB11 adaptor connected via USB. What do I need to do to get this to work? Is there another adaptor that is more Linux friendly? In the setup for adding Wireless to the system Linksys isn't listed at all. Thanks for any help!

This adapter will work if it is a version 2.6. It uses the at76c503 Atmel driver. See this page for instructions:

These drivers are probably already in your kernel under the 3rd party drivers directory. (/lib/modules/2.x.x.x/kernel/3rdparty) modprobe the appropriate driver, create an alias "alias wlan0 at76c503" in your modprobe.conf file and set up ifcfg-wlan0 if it doesn't exist. Good luck.
