     I have a Dell precision desktop which I only have Linux Ubuntu installed on. I have a Verizon Jetpack hotspot in the house and wanted to be able to connect to the internet with it. I installed a wireless adapter (usb) which came from a chinese manufacturer and was supposed to be good for Linux. My computer recognizes the connection and the name of the jetpack but will not connect to the internet. It has asked for the password which I have typed in according to the Jetpack specs., still no connection. Don't know what else to try? Can you help me to get this thing to connect or tell me where I might be going wrong?
