Why does Ubuntu not recognize my USB 802. 11g Wireless Adapter?

A 2WIRE 802.11g Wireless Adapter, the one which looks like a gray Cellphone with antenna. I just installed Ubuntu 9.04 on a Compaq Presario and it will not recognize this device. Also this device did not work on an eMachines when I ran Ubuntu 10.10 from a live CD, and in fact is not recognized by XP either. I know that the Compaq doe not have a wireless card, but it should still be able to use the USB wireless device. (I am not sure if the eMachines has a wireless card, and I doubt it because I got it second hand. Anyway shouldn’t the USB wireless devices be able to work anyway?

Thanks,
Jacob F

    you need to find the appropriate drivers and install them. for ubuntu you’ll need to know the actual chipset of the wireless adapter if you want to try using generic drivers (i.e. if the network adapter has an atheros chipset, you can probably use madwifi-ng drivers)
