Problem with Comcast Wireless Card

Problem with Comcast Wireless Card

Postby jprb85 » Wed May 09, 2007 8:20 pm

I am having big problems with my wireless card. I have a Comcast USB Adapter which I use as my wireless card for my Windows computer. I cannot get my Ubuntu Linux computer to even detect the card. I know that there is probably a driver issue, but cannot figure it out. When I type lspci I get nothing related to network showing up. I would greatly appreciate if you could walk me through the steps so that I can set up my wireless internet finally. I have listed some important information below that you might find useful about the card. Thank you.

The official name of the card is wireless usb adapter. I am now listing some important information about it

The MA111 is a Netgear card, did you bother to check with Netgear or Comcast as to why this POS doesn't work in Ubuntu?
