Using ATT Uverse Wireless Adapter (2Wire) on Ubuntu
I recently installed Ubuntu on my desktop and I really like it so far. I would like to install the 2Wire USB Wireless Adapter povided by AT&T[2wire.com] so that I can use the internet wirelessly from the desktop, but the CD only has windows installation software on it. I called AT&T support and was told they do not have drivers/software for Linux operation systems, but the person suggested I search an online Linux forum for instructions on how to obtain the drivers to install it. I searched several forums and tried three different methods, but I was probably not successful because none of the instructions were for the adapter from AT&T[2wire.com].
Any assistance from the slickdeals tech gurus would be greatly appreciated.
can u dl the latest Knoppix LiveCD and see if it will configure it properly?
or if that adapter uses a ralink chipset they may have drivers at the ralink website http://www.ralinktech.com/ralink/...Linux.html
if u can identify the chipset that will help in searching the linux community
using a patched-in ndiswrapper driver cant be as good as using a native linux driver when one is available
but if ndiswrapper is the only solution, then maybe this site will help http://easylinuxwifi.org/
the Knoppix LiveCD suggestion was just to see if a generic linux driver would work since knoppix autoconfigures itself and runs nearly any card around
