Lynksys wireless card for Desktp PC running Ubuntu Linux 7.04 Fiesty Fawn wont connect

Ok... i just got a new wireless card, its th Lynksys Wireless-G PCI Adapter Model No.WMP54G

I put it in and booted linux. The icon shows up in the system tray and when i right click the Enable Wireless is already enabled. i left click and all networks within range show up fine. When i click my connection it takes about half a min trying to connect then just stop and goeas back to the normal icon with the 2 computers and a triangle withe exclamation mark symbol in middle icon.

Why is this happening? Any help please?

I have tried toinstall ndisWrapper but keep getting errors every time i try to run te "Make/Make install" command.

Here is the output form e make install command :

root@system366-desktop:/home/system366/Desktop/Linux Net Setup Tools/ndiswrapper-1.52.tar.tar_FILES/ndiswrapper-1.52# make
make -C driver
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/system366/Desktop/Linux Net Setup Tools/ndiswrapper-1.52.tar.tar_FILES/ndiswrapper-1.52/driver'
make -C /usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.20-15-generic SUBDIRS=/home/system366/Desktop/Linux Net Setup Tools/ndiswrapper-1.52.tar.tar_FILES/ndiswrapper-1.52/driver
make[2]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.20-15-generic'
make[2]: *** No rule to make target `Net'. Stop.
make[2]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.20-15-generic'
make[1]: *** [default] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/system366/Desktop/Linux Net Setup Tools/ndiswrapper-1.52.tar.tar_FILES/ndiswrapper-1.52/driver'
make: *** [all] Error 2

Any help would be much appretiated as Linux is pretty useless to me without the Internet.

Open access with no secuity

Firewall : Off
Mac Add Filtering : Off
PassPhrase : None
WEP Encryption Key : As far as i know there isnt one

I am running Ubuntu 9.04 and cannot get the Dynex Wireless-N Usb 2.0 adapter to work. i tried using the drivers that come with the cd. i clicked and dragged the .inf file into the Windows Network Drivers...

Standalone I don't think your Dynex Wireless G/Model DX-BUSB wireless card is supported by the Linux kernel or any third party drivers. You can try use ndiswarpper.

cd ~/folder that has your driver

sudo ndiswrapper -i [your inf file]

sudo ndiswrapper -l

now it should say:
driver installed, device present
sudo ndiswrapper -m
sudo modprobe ndiswrapper
that should start the driver, and in a few minutes, you'll have a working internet connection.

I had the same problem, but due to legal issues there won't be any linksys drivers available for linux any time soon. What i did was to sell mine and buy a different one with full compatibility with both windows and linux.

Yes/No. Dlink has no support for Linux. Ubuntu should install generic drivers but it may work or just epic fail.

Asus EE PC Issues with Connecting to a wireless network.

You may have a bad wireless card. Just having it see the network is only telling you that the card's recieve function is working. However I have had many bad wireless cards that will see a network and not be able to connect. The fact that you can get others to connect indicates your network/router is working fine. If this is a new pc, I would contact their tech support. If you have a usb wireless card, you could try that and see if the problem pc works with that, which would tell you definitively that
the other wireless is bad.
