Which version of the adapter is it? The Linksys site (http://www.linksysbycisco.com/UK/en/support/WUSB54GC) says there are three versions of it.

Also, are you running 32- or 64-bit Ubuntu?

im running linux mint.

You can type
uname -m into a terminal to see if you're using 32bit or 64bit

Is the link in my previous post to the correct wireless dongle? If so, what version of the dongle is it? It should say somewhere on it: either version 1.0, version 2.0 or version 3.0.

Could you paste the following in terminal and post the output:
uname -m

i typed in uname -m and got i686 (whatever that is), and i am using the version 3 adapter.

OK, then. i686 means you are running the 32-bit version of Ubuntu.

Go here (http://www.linksysbycisco.com/US/en/support/WUSB54GC/download) and select version 3 in the drop-down menu. Click the download link under the "Setup Wizard" title. Once that has downloaded, unzip the resulting .zip file and open the folder. Once in the folder, navigate to setup/adapter/xp/x86. The file that you probably want rt2870.inf. Load that in ndiswrapper (not sure how off the top of my head as I've not used it for ages) and your wireless should work nicely...

Did you move the .inf file out of the directory it was in within the zip file before you installed it? I'm not very familiar with ndiswrapper, as I said, but looking here it is necessary to have the .sys file in the same folder as the .inf whilst enabling the .inf file.
