    Exclamation Cannot Find USB Wireless Interface

    Hello,
    I'm having some difficulty finding the Interface for my linksys wusb100 adapter. My Issue is I am using the intergraded broadcom wireless adapter to get online now but my signal is very weak so I went out and purchased the wusb100 and a USB extension cable so I can mount it outside, and I have the drivers installed it even shows up with it's full name when I look at USB Devices. However when I type iwconfig only eth0 shows up aka the one I'm on now.. If you need any more information to help please let me know I been looking for a answer for days.

    I think there should be rt2870sta drivers in the repository.
