My desktop has 4 network interfaces.

eth0 is the onboard ethernet adapter

eth1 is a pci network adapter. It shares internet to other computers through a crossover cable.

ham0 is a virtual vpn network adapter for hamachi

wlan0 does not exist, so I am unable to get my wireless usb network adapter working.

Here are the modules loaded.

"you have any modprobe or udev rules handling that device?"

How can I know?

you have any modprobe or udev rules handling that device?
