    I have the Linksys wmp54gs. I can pick the network I want to connect to; but, it will prompt me continuously for the passphrase without ever connecting.

I don't see the GS on Ubuntu's hardware list at all. I see older version, and they said some work, and some don't.

Hardware compatibility is, and will most likely always be an issue with any Linux distro.

Good luck.
