Hi. I bought a used Dell D410 laptop recently. The built-in wireless had been removed but the vendor included an AWLL5099 wireless usb adapter.

It works fine in XP, but I quickly put Ubuntu 10.4 on it. The adapter doesn't work. Meanwhile a pcmcia belkin adapter works perfectly. I also have an aged belkin usb wireless adapter, and that works out of the box.

I cannot for the life of me find any drivers to get this adapter to work in ubuntu. Does anybody know what I have to do to get this working?
