Lots of people lost wireless after the Login & Keychain update. I don't know if you did that update - but that could be the problem.

I've been trying to get my usb wifi card working since installing ToH & BrazilMac leopard a couple of days ago with no success. Its weird because it worked perfect on 10.4 (jas, uphuck,kalyway & mac.nub)

the wifi card doesnt get detected at all

its a ralink wifi card.

No luck here either with the flat image. Sound working fine but can't get my Linksys WUSB11 802.11b to connect. Not getting picked up. It seems strange Leopard doesn't offer USB connection type for networking for broadband, just cable and ethernet. I've tried switching various USB ports to no avail. Has anyone tried the driver from OrangeWare
http://www.orangewar...lessformac.html

" OrangeWare’s Wireless Driver for Mac broadens the driver availability to all users of Atheros based wireless cards. They include D-Link, Netgear, Aztec, Elecom, Fujitsu, IBM, Linksys, NEC, Samsung and Sony, and many more. All their current wireless offerings listed below can use the new OrangeWare Driver. This means that the Mac user can now link up with Mac and PC access points by using a variety of now-compatible wireless add-on cards. These solutions coupled with the OrangeWare driver are faster than the Airport Extreme cards, and can cost half as much. "

... Looks like this OrangeWare driver is just for ethernet.. That sucks.

I'll try a couple of those drivers macgirl and see what happens. Ralink looks promising if I can get it installed properly.

I have better results with the Zydas, better reception and less signal drops though.
