    Question Need help with configuring wireless internet on a fresh Kubuntu install

    Hello,

    I just installed Kubuntu dapper flight 6 on a friend's laptop. He has a speedtouch 121g Thomson Wireless 802 USB adaptor that he'd like to use. But I have no idea at all how to get such a thing to work. lsusb sees it:
    frankie@thapimptop:~$ lsusb
    Bus 005 Device 003: ID 06b9:0121 Alcatel Telecom SpeedTouch 121g Wireless Dongle
    Bus 005 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
    Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
    Bus 004 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
    Bus 002 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
    Bus 003 Device 001: ID 0000:0000

    If I try kwifimanager it cant find the interface nor it can find any networks

    How can I make wireless internet work?

    My crime is that of curiosity. My crime is that of judging people by what they say and think, not what they look like. My crime is that of outsmarting you, something that you will never forgive.

    There was a PET about ndiswrapper and wireless setup on LJR but it didn't make it over since Gorn never gave permission to carry it over (IIRC). Check that first. I was going to re-write it but never got around to it yet.
