    The Cisco is very hard and the Linksys is merely hard. The Cisco will be a bit of an adventure and may or may not work. I'm fairly certain it's a usb_modeswitch device.

    The Linksys will probably work with ndiswrapper.

    As for other devices, please check here or look for the magic word SOLVED here on the forum.

    ok chilli555, thank you!
    i will try getting the linysys to work again, using the ndiswrapper.

    i.e. no need to continue work on this, but i thank you greatly for all the assistance.

    This may help; evidently, you need the .inf and the .sys and the .cat files!

    Re: wireless connector

    I just brought a Cisco Valet Plus, very easy to set up which is great but I too noticed that the box the router was only compatible with Windows and Mac. I let my mom borrow my tower which is running the latest version of Ubuntu as I fixed her desktop which runs Vista. I would really like to switch towers so I can have mine back and get more familiar with Linux (I'm a noob), I'm usually at school with my laptop, which is currently being fixed. But with all that said, should I follow the same steps as the OP or are there other steps that I should consider?

    The Valet units have a storage space, like a USB key, containing the drivers and the software hands off control to the wireless device behind it. The mechanism that operates in this manner in Linux is usb_modeswitch. I am sure it can be done in Ubuntu and I am sure I don't know how, to be a bit too blunt.

    If I were you and looked forward to a challenge, I'd start a new thread and refer to Cisco Valet and usb_modeswitch and see if a guru comes forward to help you.

    thanks, and my apologies for the extreme delay,
    jennifer

    Re: wireless connector

    The .inf files you are looking for are in the USB device under the corresponding OS files such AMD-windows,vista. Just check the extensions, they are there I promise!!
