I seem to have a problem that no else appears to have encountered before (at least a couple of hours Googling has shown this to be the case).
I am running Ubuntu 12.04. I plug in the device (Linksys AE3000) and type
lsusb in the terminal, but the device name doesn't show up at all. I have attempted to plug it into different USB ports, all of which work, and the device fails to be recognized.
Now, I know the device works on this computer, because it also runs Windows with which the device works perfectly fine.
What should I be doing?
