Searching the forum might give some clues, otherwise tell us what OS and Wifi adapter you have and we'll have a better change of helping.

It has no brand, it come with cd though. I copied the cd setup files to USB but the raspberry pi won't read .exe files. Is there another way. Can get this to work? Thanks

I'm not sure then...I'm assuming the standard Debian Squeeze...not Debian Wheezy alpha or Raspbian?

Hi, thanks for your help so for it is normal squeeze. I will try again tomorrow and what is the code? Do I type it on terminal? Sudo at the start? And does it begin with I or one? Thank you :)

In a terminal. It starts with an L. I suspect that is your problem. :)

It doesn't show anything it just goes down a line without it typing anything first.

search.php?keywords=wifi returns lots of results (some of which may be useful) and it's also worth looking at http://elinux.org/RPi_Peripherals
