cant connect to router (belkin 54g, linksys wusb300)

I am running Ubuntu 9.04 on a desktop pc, I have a Linksys WUSB300n wireless card, and a new Belkin 54G router. At my old house, I used to be able to connect to the router that bright house (my isp/cable provider) with no problem using this card. I move out and buy a belkin 54g, and now I have issues connecting to the router, on ubuntu only, though. Right now I am using windows xp to connect, with no problems. I just wish I knew why ubuntu wont connect.

on Ubuntu, it picks up the network, but when I try to connect it keeps asking for my password, as if it were wrong or something. this is so frustrating because I am a linux user, not a windows user. On my ubuntu dell mini 9, it has no problem connecting to the network when I'm in the same room as my desktop.

Not sure what you are doing wrong but it sounds like an issue with the security. what happens if you disable the security? does it work then? If your router supports MAC address filtering you can use that and disable the security and use it that way.

I've already decided to use MAC address filtering, and just disable security altogether. I kinda forgot about it at first, or I would have done that to begin with. I just forgot to delete the question, and to be fair I'm giving you the points. I honestly thing it's just a bug between linksys and belkin, mainly belkin. It won't connect using WEP, WPA or WPA2.

Thanks for the response!
