I have posted about not being able to configure this device before at http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=691186. I was actually able to get this to get this device working properly through advice offered in the referenced post.

However, since I updated to Ubuntu 8.04 (hardy) last week I have not been able to get on the Internet. When I type in the following command

ifconfig -a

there is no entry for WLAN0, just entires for 'eth2' and 'lo'. I have removed the USB device and plugged it back in, yet the system does not register the device. Does anyone have any advice as to how I can get this back up and working? Thanks in advance!

Just to reiterate, my wireless connection worked in Gutsy but now that I upgraded to Hardy it has stopped working. Does anyone know how to fix this issue? any responses would be greatly appreciated. Once again, thanks!

Were you using Network Manager, or something else like Wicd in Gutsy? I had the same problem, though with a different card (My set up is with a Netgear router and #*%@ Broadcom Airforce one in my lappy).

The install of Hardy wiped my wireless settings and I had to reconfigure Wicd and remove Network Manager all over again.

I gather that Network Manager is needed when the OS is reinstalled, or upgraded, and so doing so mucks up the alternative wireless settings.
I hope this is of some use. [-o<
