Good morning! My name is*****'m sorry that you're having this problem and I'm sorry that you've had to wait for an answer. I will do my best to help you. I will need to ask a few questions in order to best help you.

  1. What is your Ubuntu version?
  2. Make sure your USB WLAN adapter is connected, then in the command line type lsusb and provide the results please.
  3. What exact model is your usb adadpter, for example is it the linksys AE1200 Wireless N or a different Wireless N model
  4. Linux/Ubuntu support for these devices is spotty at best. The more I know, the better chance I have of finding out if it is supported or not.
