    Question Help with Wireless Adapter and Roaming Mode

    I'm am new to ubuntu (windows user) and I thought I would give my laptop a new life by installing ubuntu on it. Everything seems to work great considering its about 6 or 7 years old. The problem is my network adapter. It completely screws up my system when I have it in roaming mode, but I tried manual connection and that worked perfectly. It's a Linksys WPC54G Ver.2. Here's a picture

    Any ideas how to fix it?

    I forgot to mention what happens if I have roaming selected, it startes to connect to the network and then the icon next the the volume disappears. Then my keyboard doesnt work and the only thing I can do is reboot.

    Did you install a driver for your wireless, and if so, how? If not, is it using one of the ones built in to Ubuntu?

    No I didn't install any drivers. I just assumed it was working since I could see wireless networks. I honestly don't know how to install drivers on ubuntu.

    Oh, and when I try to connect, the wifi icon next to the volume disappears and then my keyboard stops working. It's really weird
