Could you please help me troubleshoot my USB WiFi. This Unit works fine using Raspbmc but not using Squeezeplug. I assume there might be a missing driver I could install?
The vendor of the USB is only telling me that is has a Ralink chipset in it so I was hoping there was a way to install a whole set of compatible drivers so it could work?

Thank you in advance for the help!

**Update**
I added this into the source list:
deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ squeeze main contrib non-free
deb-src http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ squeeze main contrib non-free

deb http://security.debian.org/ squeeze/updates main contrib non-free
deb-src http://security.debian.org/ squeeze/updates main contrib non-free

deb http://b.berteau.free.fr/ sarge main

then: apt-get update

Now I am able to scan and view available networks using: iwlist scan
root@squeezeplug:~# iwlist scan | more

lo Interface doesn't support scanning.

eth0 Interface doesn't support scanning.

My wpa_supplicant.conf looks as follows:

ctrl_interface=DIR=/var/run/wpa_supplicant GROUP=netdev
update_config=1
network={
ssid="matches my ssid"
psk="my password"
proto=RSN
key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
pairwise=TKIP
group=TKIP WEP104 WEP40
auth_alg=OPEN
}


Can anyone tell me why still does not connect?
