This is the wireless chipset I have in my little netbook:

I am running the following kubuntu kernel:

Linux alice 2.6.38-8-generic #42-Ubuntu SMP Mon Apr 11 03:31:50 UTC 2011 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

Im trying to connect to a Linksys router that has been flashed with the tomato firmware and has a WPA2 Personal password set.

Am having not much luck - it hangs at configuring network stage according to the network icon.

It has been working before when i installed - but it dropped the connection for some reason and haasn't really been working since!

I have done the blacklisting of some of the modules that i found on the internet but that doesn't work either so what can i do about it..?
