Hello, I just got Ubuntu 10.04 and am super impressed already in it's ability to recognize all my hardware. In trying to use my WUSB54g network adaptor, I can see my network but cannot access any webpages other than Ubuntu.com. I am currently thinking it's a driver issue or that my box is USB1.0 and it's just too slow causing the timeout.

1) How do I see what driver is being used for the WUSB54g adaptor, or is it possible that this adaptor functions without a driver installed?
2) Can I see if the USB hub is enhanced or not? This is a troubleshooting step for the wireless problem.
3) How to install a driver- currently the window says "no hardware drivers are installed" yet my printer works ok without intervention.

Thanks for any info on this!

There are three or four versions of this adapter. Look on the sticker on the bottom of the adapter and post the version that you have (I think 1 ,2 or 4). Did you try installing the linux-firmware-nonfree package?
