    Maybe you can post the exact brand and name of the dongle.

    If it isn't supported by Ubuntu maybe you can use ndiswrapper (ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net/).
    It helped me a couple of times with unsupported wifi-hardware

    Thanks for the help everyone.

    The dongle is an eTEC XG-762N. I appear to have the same dongle as this person:http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-326459.html

    Unfortunately I don't have the driver disc

    Thank you for all the help

    UPDATE: I think i have just downloaded the correct WIndows drivers from

    http://www.etec-components.co.uk/download.html

    This ndiswrapper thing is a little confusing to me. From what i understand its a way of using windows drivers on linux. Is my understanding correct? CAn anybody give me a step by step in how to use it to setup my dongle?

    Thanks once again
