Hello, I am using a 2Wire wireless network adapter

john@john-desktop:~$ lsusb

And was following these directions:

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/Driver/Ndiswrapper
And got an error that ndiswrapper couldn't find WlanCIG.sys (I had the file under a different name)
So, I ran a check to see if it installed right:

john@john-desktop:~$ ndiswrapper -l
wlanuig : driver installed
john@john-desktop:~$ ifconfig
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:03:47:29:53:92

john@john-desktop:~$ iwconfig
lo no wireless extensions.

eth0 no wireless extensions.

So, I went to remove the driver
using
ndiswrapper -r wlanuig
but I was thrown this:

john@john-desktop:~$ ndiswrapper -r wlanuig

So, can anyone offer any help to get me going :\ ?
Kind of a newbie to Linux, this is my first distro but I couldn't stand Windows anymore as a novice programmer.
