Kubuntu Wireless Issue

http://www.linuxquestions.org – Hi Everyone. I installed Kubuntu 9.10 this morning and haven't been able to get my wireless working properly. I can connect to my network (WEP 128bit key) and acquire an IP address without any problems. But as soon as it connects it stops talking to the router (about 4 pings after it connects). The pings then change from a reply to saying "Destination host unreachable", even though it works fine on the Windows box I'm sending this from. I'm using an external USB dongle (D Link DWL-G122) and the drivers listed are rt73usb. The output from iwconfig is: Code: lo        no wireless extensions. eth0      no wireless extensions. wmaster0  no wireless extensions. wlan1    IEEE 802.11bg  ESSID:"homenetwork"           Mode:Managed  Frequency:2.462 GHz  Access Point: 00:19:5B:1D:B9:B6           Bit Rate=24 Mb/s  Tx-Power=12 dBm           Retry  long limit:7  RTS thr:off  Fragment thr:off           Power Management:on           Link Quality=42/70  Signal level=-68 dBm           Rx invalid nwid:0  Rx invalid crypt:0  Rx invalid frag:0           Tx excessive retries:0  Invalid misc:0  Missed beacon:0 The output from ifconfig is: Code: eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:16:d4:da:c0:35           UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1           RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0           TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0           collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000           RX bytes:0 (0.0 B)  TX bytes:0 (0.0 B)           Interrupt:21 lo        Link encap:Local Loopback           inet addr:127.0.0.1  Mask:255.0.0.0           UP LOOPBACK RUNNING  MTU:16436  Metric:1           RX packets:22 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0           TX packets:22 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0           collisions:0 txqueuelen:0           RX bytes:1100 (1.1 KB)  TX bytes:1100 (1.1 KB) wlan1    Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:19:5b:35:1c:d9           inet addr:192.168.1.2  Bcast:192.168.1.255  Mask:255.255.255.0           UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1           RX packets:11 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0           TX packets:42 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0           collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000           RX bytes:1460 (1.4 KB)  TX bytes:6756 (6.7 KB) wmaster0  Link encap:UNSPEC  HWaddr 00-19-5B-35-1C-D9-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00           UP RUNNING  MTU:0  Metric:1           RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0           TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0           collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000           RX bytes:0 (0.0 B)  TX bytes:0 (0.0 B) Does anyone have any ideas?
