i recently decided to put Xubuntu Version 8.04 on my old computer, its an emachines T1801 to be exact. then i connected a usb linksys wireless g adapter model# WUSB54G ver.4, then when i went to Network Manager it recognized the card as wireless after i put the essid and wep key. after that i tried going on the internet, but the internet would not work.
