I have an Edimax EW7318USG USB wireless adapter. The compatibility table says this should work out of the box. I have tried to install the soft ware but cannot get it to run. Of course, the instructions are for a Windows based pc. I did the Widows wireless drive from the administration drop down. I cannot get the laptop to recognize the adapter. I have an IBM ThinkPad model A31, P4, 1 gig DDR. I am using Hardy Heron.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

i guess you should start here - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/WiFiHowTo

if the card is said to work OOB, then you should not encounter any problems...
