    Zoom 4411 usb won't connect

    I've loaded Ubuntu 10.04 onto a dual boot machine. I have a Zoom 4411 Wireless-N USB dongle that works fine in Windows. The wireless network icon implies I'm connected but I can't connect to the internet or see the PCs on my network. Here's the output from lsmod and ifconfig.

    I logged in as root and blacklisted rt2800usb. I am also getting a message about needing to enter the login keyring password, whatever that is. The system is set to log in automatically.
    Do I need to install the drivers at System -> Administration-> Hardware Drivers as well? Do I need to enter a BSSID in the wireless configuration screen? What is the BSSID if so?

    And most importantly, did I already post this question? Oh boy, is the ol' melon fried.

    Re: Zoom 4411 usb won't connect

    You have too many drivers loaded. Please edit, as root, /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf to add these lines:
    Code:
    blacklist rt2800usb
    blacklist rt2x00usb
    blacklist rt2x00lib
    Proofread carefully. Reboot and connect.

    Re: Zoom 4411 usb won't connect

    I blacklisted the three rt2*** files. No go. Another person suggested removing the keyring file using
    rm .gnome2/keyrings/login.keyring which I did as root and using Terminal.

    I get aq pop up asking for my keyrings password, which I have no idea what it is so I use the Ubuntu admins password. If I click on the wirewess icon, I get a message I've been disconnected. I set up the D-Link DIR-624 router so it plainly sees the wireless dongle. It still works just fine under Windows, but craps out under Ubuntu. Next step?

    Please post:
    Code:
    dmesg | grep -e rt2 -e wlan
    Thanks.

    Re: Zoom 4411 usb won't connect

    Well, I got rid of the Zoom usb wireless adapter and tried another usb adapter that claimed to have the Linux drivers on disk. Of course, I need to figure out how to load them. Anyway, are there other settings that need to be made in Lucid to get a connection from the PC thru a router to the internet. I've run the commands, set the IP addresses, and tried what's been suggested. I checked with D-Link and they suggested turning off WEP/WPA and wireless security. (YIKES!!) I did notice that even tho both Network Manager & WICD say the adapter is working and connected, neither the router not the other PC's are seen.
    So, what do the mavens of Linux suggest? Who knows. Maybe we'll un up with a sticky on how to set up a wireless usb adapter.
    Oh, I forgot to get the results from Chili555's request. Sorry.
