So, I have a Linksys Wireless G [WUSB54G ver. 4] card that Ubuntu recognizes, even finds the Ralink RT2500 driver for, and it sees all the networks in range but when I try and connect, it attempts for quite a while and then just quits.
I was able to use this card problem free plug and play on... 11.10 or 12.04 (I cant remember which) and really loved using Ubuntu, when I upgraded this problem started occuring and I ended up just swapping back to Windows7 out of pure frustration. I'd very much like to switch back now.
I dont think it's a driver issue because Ubuntu does recognize the device. I suppose it could be an issue with my router? I dunno. Also, the wireless is totally open, no security or encryption on the router. So I dont think its an issue with that.
I dont have any way of getting an ethernet cable to my computer (router is on the other side of the house) but I can usb tether my computer if need be.
