Re: Dell Wireless 400 Wireless USB Mini-card

You should help yourself by providing some details of your problem:

<http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/bugs.html>

What specifically doesn't work?  What WUSB hub/device are you using?

Are the wusbcore modules being loaded?   They are present in my Ubunto 9.10

box, but I think they are experimental and may not support all devices.

<http://www.linuxuwb.org> may be more helpful than the Dell forums
