    Default Re: Sagem xn720 usb wireless doesnt connect

    After I installed madwifi like listed on other similar threads I tried to connect with Wicd and discovered that Wicd (a Network Manager) detect wireless networks only when I unplug then replug my usb adapter, seconds after that networks disappear again.
    The same thing with kwifi Manager and when scanning networks on Yast Wireless Network Manager.
    I think somehow the device automatically shutdown after a certain period, but the led on the adapter still flash !
    Anyone can help please!

    does the output of the command 'dmesg' offer any clues?
