    i am not an expert with wireless, but if you can not get this card to work, why not sell it and buy one that is compatible? it will save you alot of frustration.

    how long have you been working on this problem? what have you tried?

    If I am correct the linksys card is based on a broadcom chipset. So a lot of troubles are before you. Try this:

    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wi...ksysWPC54GS-UK

    Please post the result of this command:
    Code:
    sudo lspci
    If you have a
    Broadcom chip. Saionara... Get another card.
    Keep it real. Keep it nice.

    What version of Ubuntu are you using?

    I have found a very long thread dealing with broadcom and 8.10.
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=963978

    I know your pain mate. I had also a braodcom wlan card in my dell notebook. The last solution I saw after countless hours of tweaking and screwing up my whole system ( it was fun though) I just smashed the wlan card and bought another one which IS compatible with linux.
