Try a different USB port?

If it really isn't showing up, paste the output from:

Code:
lsusb -n
dmesg | tail -n 25

if something says permission denied stick "sudo" in front of it youll just have to type in your password... it basically runs a command with elevated permissions

EDIT: make sure you should run it first dont do like an rm -rf --no-preserve-root / and put sudo in front just because it says it wants higher permissions XD (note, dont run that command, ever)
Kinda meh now...

ifup is basically a short hand version of ifconfig up

the long syntax would be ifconfig eth0 up

there is some differences, but basically thats how you turn on a network card thats currently off... you need admin permissions to do it so if you run it as

sudo ifup wlan0

it will run as admin, ifconfig up, on wlan0 your first wireless card

if you know windows networking a bit, ifconfig is basically the linux ipconfig with some more functions in it

EDIT: no guarantee this will work, but its a really easy to type in one line short command to see if its just currently disabled

ok so it enabled it in the terminal but it still wont find it. I don't get it. this would be so much easier if it was a different issue.
