        What distro are you using? Ubuntu 10.04 and Mint 9 come with an easy tool for installing Windows wireless drivers.

            lol. 8.04 is ancient. Yes it was an LTS but that doesn't mean it isn't old. I would go for 9.10 minimum.

                The newer the version the newer Kernel you get...which means more drivers included by default...so it might even work out of the box.

                  ok thanks updated it to 10.04 now so il ask him to bring his adaptor around and give it a go and see how it works

                  edit: my own belkin wireless n adaptor shows up both 'btfon' and 'btopenzone' but not my homehub which is weird, any suggestions as to what i do to go about finding that?

                    Is it hidden? If the others show up that one should too really?

                      yeah thats what im thinking. dont think it is hidden because all the computers in the house pick it up using windows. anyway going to try gathering and entering the details manually now.

                        just to update, the persons computer which i installed ubuntu on for them was very impressed as was i tbh, for such a low spec computer to be so fast was impressive. must say that from now on with any non-gaming computers i have in the future i will defs be using linux oh and the persons adapter worked perfectly as well, just plug and play.

                          Is this the adapter you PM'd me about?

                          Glad you got it sorted.

                            Thought that might be the case, every new Kernel release has improved + new drivers added all the time.

                            It has come a looooong way.

                              I'm of the same opinion. I installed Ubuntu 10.04 and from now on it will go on all my non gaming machines. It's so easy to use and you get so much more bang for your buck than Windows. Also it uses less power, so it's much better for machines that you leave on a lot.
