    Here is a how-to that DOES NOT involve source code or compiling. Worked perfectly.

    This worked for me. I have a WUSB100. I used the rt2870sta file instead since that is the correct file for the WUSB100.

    Re: Linksys Wireless USB (WUSB600N) Installation Problems...

    I am having issues after a new kernel update. My WUSB100 worked until then.

    When the update came, I tried to recompile so it would work again. Chili555, I used your code.
    Code:
    sudo su
    make clean
    make 
    make install
    modprobe rt2870sta
    Network manager does not recognize that a wireless device is in place. The device is recognized by lsusb, the kernel module was created, and most everything looks in place. I know I'm missing something but have not figured out what it is, yet. Any help would be appreciated. Below are some of the outputs I think would be helpful to help me out. I should note that I did not get any errors or messages that seemed unusual when recompiling.

    The machine is an older Compaq laptop running Ubuntu 8.04.,

    Code:
    brett@strawberries:~$ more /etc/modules
    # /etc/modules: kernel modules to load at boot time.
    #
    # This file contains the names of kernel modules that should be loaded
    # at boot time, one per line. Lines beginning with "#" are ignored.

    Re: Linksys Wireless USB (WUSB600N) Installation Problems...

    Network Manager will not recognize interfaces, in your case ra0, that are listed in /etc/network/interfaces. Please amend your interfaces file to:
    Code:
    auto lo
    iface lo inet loopback
    Also, I notice this:
    [ 63.149521] usbcore: deregistering interface driver ndiswrapper
    [ 63.215766] usbcore: registered new interface driver ndiswrapper
    Please run:
    Code:
    ndiswrapper -l
    That's a lower case L for 'list.' Whatever driver you find, rt2870, probably, needs to be erased:
    Code:
    ndiswrapper -e <driveryoufound>
    It may then benefit from a reboot. Is it working?

    Thanks, the first step solved it. Network Manager found the AP as soon as I saved the /etc/network/interfaces file. Reboot was not even necessary.

    This computer does not have ndiswrapper installed so I'm not sure why that message is appearing in the log. Perhaps it was installed at one time. I'll worry about it later; wifi is up.
