Hi! I'm a new user in this forum and a less but still new user of Ubuntu.

I'm running 10.4 and I have a wireless usb TP-LINK TL-WN2700ND that doesn't work in ubuntu but it does in windows xp, so I tried to install the windows driver with ndiswrapper. The driver is correctly installed and the pc somehow "knows" that the usb is there, but it doesn't find any network.

Here is the output of iwconfig:

lo no wireless extensions.

eth1 no wireless extensions.

The device not working is wlan3 (wlan2 is the one I'm using to write here). I've read that the chipset is Ralink 3070.

Finally, I've found out that the device works with 10.4 in older machines but not in "new" ones.
If you need more information to help me, I'll be glad to post it.

Thanks,
Joan
