    Default How di I actually connect to a wireless network?

    Hello,
    I have configured my wireless network card (ASUS WL-138G V2) and I believe I have done everything correctly>
    The problem I have is i simply don't know how to find my network. There are currently no machines connected to the router by wireless but one(this one) by ethernet cable.

    Please help!!!

    You probably have done everything correctly. The ASUS WL-138G V2 has
    an error in the programming of the SPROM that keeps the radio from
    working. Please copy and paste the following set of commands and post
    the output:

    SPROM=$(find /sys -name ssb_sprom)
    echo $SPROM
    sudo cat $SPROM

    When I get your results, I will change the critical encoding and post
    the new SPROM contents and the instructions for applying them.

    This is the terminal output from all 3 commands

    linux-l5hr:~ # SPROM=$(find /sys -name ssb_sprom)
    linux-l5hr:~ # echo $SPROM
    /sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1e.0/0000:03:09.0/ssb_sprom
    linux-l5hr:~ # sudo cat $SPROM

    To fix your problem, copy the following line of text (the whole
    thing), and paste it into a file named sprom.new. It should be on one
    line - wrap-arounds are OK, but no newline characters. My mailer may
    add some spaces. If it does, they need to be removed.

    012000000F10431018430080020000000010001800000000FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF0000FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF1F0021C64B8BFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF4230CA157DFA38FFFFFFFFFF3C00FFFFFFFFFFFF3E00480002FF42470CFFFFFF811302A5

    After you have prepared the file, run the following commands.

    SPROM=$(find /sys -name ssb_sprom)
    echo $SPROM
    sudo cp sprom.new $SPROM

    If the 3rd line gives you an error message, please recheck the
    contents of sprom.new. If you cannot get it, please send me a PM with
    your email address, and I will mail you the file.

    Once you have successfully updated the SPROM, your wifi should work
    right away.

    Error Message says:

    linux-l5hr:~ # SPROM=$(find /sys -name ssb_sprom)

    /sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1e.0/0000:03:09.0/ssb_sprom

    my email address is bobwozere12345@aol.com

    the machine I am using doesn't have internet so I will have to pick up the email on a windows machine.
    Will that make a difference?

    Many Thanks
