Plug in your USB wifi adaptor and then type this command

Now check the reposotiry to see if there is a driver for this chipset

$apt-cache search zd1211

zd1211-firmware - Firmware images for the zd1211rw wireless driver

Install the driver

$sudo apt-get install zd1211-firmware

Now you can install a wireless tool

$sudo apt-get install wicd-curses

Once this has installed you can then run the configuration tool which, and connect to your wifi network.


And you will see a interface like the one shown below

From here you can setup your wifi network

    Thanks for this. This is the one, out of many, that made it work. I think using wicd-curses was the answer as I was able to play around with the settings. Nicely working now!
