I have built my ZBOX-AD02-U with 4gRam and 320g harddrive, and am using it atm to type this. So, wired works. But, I need wireless to work, as the box will be in my livingroom.

I installed both Ubuntu 10.10 32-bit and 11.04 64 bit with no success with the r8168 Wifi. It shows it is connected to my network, but it does no load anything. I have researched the Ubuntu forums and thought I would find an answer, but have had no success.

I need to know if there is a way to get this to work, or have this disabled somehow so that I can get a wireless connection to my router.

no success with the r8168 Wifi.r8168 is the driver for your wired ethernet. It has nothing to do with wireless. I believe the driver for your wireless is rt2860sta. Sometimes there is a conflicting driver that also loads, rt2800pci. Let's check:
lsmod | grep rt2
lspci -nn | grep NetworkThanks.
