The Linksys WUSB600N doesn't work in Ubuntu out of the box (current as of the release of Ibex) Also it does not play nice with ndiswrapper (frequent disconnects, no 5Ghz support, no WPA2 support) I was able to get it working with 5ghz and WPA2 by following steps that I found here: https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+question/45440 Credit goes to the original author. I've downloaded and modified the driver source for your convenience. Step 1 - Download the modified driver source here: http://rapidshare.com/files/160951015/WUSB600N.tar Step 2 - Extract WUSB600N.tar to a folder Step 3 - Open a terminal and navigate to the newly created WUSB600N folder Step 4 - type "sudo make" without quotes Step 5 - Copy the file: sudo mkdir /etc/Wireless sudo mkdir /etc/Wireless/RT2870STA sudo cp RT2870STA.dat /etc/Wireless/RT2870STA/RT2870STA.dat Step 6 - open the WUSB600N/os/linux folder and type "sudo insmod rt2870sta.ko" again without quotes. The wireless card should now be working. So far, I'm stuck on step one. Why? Well It's Rapidshare. I've constantly been trying to download that one file, but apparently I need to "check back in two minutes as all of their free uploading spots are taken." And of course, they never cease to mention that the wait can be gone at 7Euros a month. Could anyone give me another driver download link? If they can't, for those of you who DO have the file, could you upload it on mediafire etc or send it to my spam account if possible (sst__tank900@hotmail.com) Thanks. (HowTos)
