like so many others I am having problems with my wireless adaptor. I am also new to Linux from Windows and I'm not sure how to proceed. When I check the Network connections the adaptor can see the networks to connect to, but constantly asks for the Network Key (password) but doesn't connect. It was working fine with XP Home Edition, When I inserted the driver disc for the adaptor only text files showed up? I'm a MSWindows 'blonde' and need some hand-holding please, I'm totally unfamiliar with the terminal. Many thanks for your patience and answer in advance, David
