If you press Ctrl+Alt+t and input these commands, then copy and paste the output here, we can try to help. - may be worth going to system > network connections and clicking the wireless tab to see if your network is there first.



lsusb




iwconfig




lshw -C network

i looked in the control panel and the connection is there. i just can't connect to my wireless network.
In addition, the device work fine on windows, so the problam isn't with the device.
thanks

The problems usually are not the devices or the fact that they runs on Windows. Most of the time is either it dosent have a driver installed or there is no driver.

In your case you have a:

Bus 001 Device 007: ID 148f:2770 Ralink Technology, Corp.

If you spend enough time around here you notice that a bunch of network cards from different "vendors" user the same chips inside so if there is a driver you are in luck, then is a matter of configuration.

Could be you need to blacklist something

Ralink often cause problems in linux - might be driver issues...there's loads of stuff on the forums and in the documentation. you need to look into ndsiwrapper and search using the ralink driver name. you can find this out by putting



lsusb


will be called 'ralink number'

post back if you need further assistance :-)
