    Configuring USB WAN adapters in linux, an impossible task?

    ok I have a USB WAN adapter and it is IEEE 802.11b compliant and it is a Linksys, model number WUSB11 ver 2.5, and I have been having a bitch of a time configuring the prism drivers from www.linux-wlan.com, I get through alot of the readme and when it comes down to the modprobe prism2_usb blah blah it says it can't find module prism2_usb, where am I going wrong here does anyone have a USB nic working in linux?

    What version of linux are your running? And do you have any other USB devices right now or ever working on that machine?

    Hey soule I thank you for all your posts to my past questions and again to this one, for the record, I'm using REDHAT 7.2 and have no other usb devices working, I ran make menuconfig and enabled USB as not the M but the * so ...
