I bought the WUSB54GC after I read it functions well in a recent Ubuntu 

I have tested in 3 different PC's, all running 9.10 Karmic. After putting 
the stick in the pc it will load rt2800usb which in its turn will load 
rt2870.bin, a firmware library.

After loading I get:

lsusb: ID 1737:0077 Linksys
(That is all I get in 9.04, in 9.10 I also get the following)
iwconfig: wlan0: IEEE 80211bgn
sudo iwlist wlan0 scan shows no networks allthough I can see at least 2 
networks with an other laptop, I'm only a few meters from the router.
"iwlist wlan0 freq" and "iwlist wlan0 channel" give the normal 
frequenties and channels, among those the frequenty and channel my router 
uses (I tried different channels with my router)

So, I cannot connect to my network, even if I fill in the name of my 
network as if it is a invisible network I cannot get a connection.

Anybody an idea what I can try next?
