Ok so here's the deal. I have a linksys wireless-b usb adapter (wusb11 2.6) and it seems to not be compatible with linux :/. I tried ifconfig and iwconfig and it does not show up. However, I try my other similar linksys wireless g usb adapter (wusb54Gv2) on my other similar box and it works fine-for a while. On that machine, the adapter shows up on both configs as wlan0 as expected. I run "sudo /etc/init.d/wicd start" and am able to connect to my protected network. However, it eventually disappears after about 5 minutes and there are 0 networks in range. I checked iwconfig again and my device still shows up, yet all the networks magically disappear. I am not a linux guru. Does anyone have any advice?
