    ASUS USB-N13 Wireless Receiver Problems in Ubuntu 11.10

    I purchased the ASUS N13 usb wireless adapter since it advertised itself as being compatible with linux. However when I plug it in nothing happens. I looked on this forum, but none of the solutions work since the device ID on this one is not 0b05:1784 but is instead: 0b05:17ab. If anyone could help I would much appreciate it.

    The entire result of lsusb follow:
    Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
    Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

    iwconfig returns:
    ~$ iwconfig
    lo no wireless extensions.

    eth0 no wireless extensions.
    I am on a completely clean install with no updates. I can connect the computer via ethernet for short periods of time, but I would prefer to find a way to get this working without having to do that.

    I am not sure it will work for you with kerenel 3.0xx. Please try it and if not, I will have another suggestion.

    It is also tested with kernel 3.x (Ubuntu 11.10)

    That seemed to work. Thanks a ton.

    I felt bad about not being able to find a solution but seeing as the page was in German I feel better about it.

    When i updated to 3.0.0-16 the adapter stopped working again. If I boot to 3.0.0-12 it works fine. Any ideas?

    uninstalling and re installing worked.

    Thanks again

    Maybe the following package is missing
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install --reinstall linux-headers-generic
    This will install/reinstall the required header-packages for an kernel update and the driver can be built automatically via dkms.
