I have installed Xubuntu 9.04 on a HP laptop (Omnibook). It has an Actiontec wifi modem (usb type) ... and according to the information, support for the prism2 card is now inbuilt into the kernel since 8.04. However, my machine doesn't know this. Ought I install wlan-ng ... and try and go forward from there??

At present ... the modem.wifi seems 'invisible' to the system ... even though I am assured that it works 'out of the box' since 8.04!! Certainly my modem IS covered by the wlan-ng project ... as its codes are specifically mentioned i the lists on the wiki.

Anyone got some good ideas??
