I am about to install Ubuntu 7.10 on my second Computer and i know ill need to find a way to install either my PCI or USB Wireless Adaptor, i have a TPLINK USB Adaptor and a PCI PEAK Wireless Card.

Which, if not both, should i install and HOW do i do it? Nomrlaly my wireless devices do not connect to my router...

Can anyone help?

the wireless adapters may work automatically. depends on the model of the cards, not just the brands.
*hint hint*

this post doesn't make that adapter sounds promising =\
but it may be a good learning experience & you may have different experiences than that poster.

The adaptor works perfectly im posting this on 7.10 with no problems, its a little slow till i put in the offical drivers though.

All i had to do was take out the PCI card, apparently the card has issues running with linux. and caused from what i know, hardware conflict.

I also took off the WEP protection but ill be trying it with WEP later.

And just to clarify im not too much of a newbie ^^ im used to ubuntu and red hat to be honest, its just ive never tried wireless before lol

Thanks!

hahah gotcha, well thats good ^_^
using wep or wpa is pretty easy to get going in my experiences. altho if you decide on wpa over wep, theres something that needs to be installed.. you'd have to search the repo's for wpa & see what it lists, i dont recall the name atm
