http://ubuntuforums.org – i have a canyon usb wireless adapter that im trying to get to work on my Ubuntu 10.10 X64-bit pc. i want to keep to 64bit as i believe that this is the way forward, i did plug it in on my 64bit Win7 pc and it works without any hassle. i am pretty new to Linux. i have googled a bit and tried various things, but i just dont seem to get this working. i have tried to add my wireless network physically but as soon as it "connects", it just disappear, ive also tried to change my WPA2 to other options on my router, and have the same issue. i dont want to open my router for all to see...
