Hello, Trying to get wireless connection on Dapper was a real nightmare for me. I had the WUSB54Gv4 wireless usb adapter at the time. I now have the Belkin usb network adapter.

Have you tried this thread?

Using the Network Manager usually caused the system to freeze up. Eventually, After following the instructions on the above thread, I was able to get a connection using commands from the terminal. There is a way to semi-automate them using bin bash.

I have recently upgraded to Hardy. I had a few problems, but finally got a connection. I tried Ubuntu 7.10 on live cd and got a connection using the commands from the terminal. I recently tried 6.06 from Live CD, and could not get a connection. If you have 6.06 on your hard drive, I would recommend that you follow that thread.
