View Full Version : [ubuntu] Wireless usb not connecting

October 14th, 2011, 03:47 PM
I'm using Ubuntu 11.10 and cannot connect using wireless adapter. I have a Rosewill usb adapter - RNX-N180UBE.

Tried everything I can think of but no luck.

When I run iwconfig this is the result

lo no wireless extensions.

eth0 no wireless extensions.

Any suggestion to get me going?

Thanks, Tony
