I just downloaded and installed ubuntu 8.10 on my computer today. I honestly had no idea what I was getting myself into, but now that I've started I can't stop!

I am trying to get my netgear wpn111 usb wireless internet card installed on my computer, and though I have found many forums about how to do this, I have no idea what they are saying when talking about codes, or where I put these in... I don't know anything about linux, and I cannot even seem to find documentation on the basics online.

I tried to install build-essential on the computer so that I could follow some instructions online to get this thing installed, but I get an error; Error: Dependency is not satisfiable: g++

help please!!

Start off by posting the output of typing "lspci" in the terminal.

sudo apt-get install build-essential ndiswrapper


Try the above command to install build-essential and ndiswrapper
packages and post the output if it fails.

I guess that its hard to download the packages when you don't have an working wireless card! Can you plug it into a wired connection to get the packages?

If you cant get a wired connection you can get the required packages from another computer, save them to a flash drive and put them on the ubuntu computer.

where do i get the packages from? I am not sure what I need! I downloaded the build-essential_11.4_i386.deb and the 11.3 packages but i get that g++ error

Things will be much easier for you if you could get box connected to ethernet directly then do the apt-get -- is that not an option?

now keep in mind that this is a fresh install of ubuntu, so i dont mind messing it up a bit and needing to reinstall..

but i tried to install the libstdc and ti told me to install a gcc base. when i installed the gcc base it told me to run

sudo alt-get install -f

i am running it right now and it looks like its uninstalling the ubuntu. what is this command doing? if it is messing everything up then i will just reinstall tomorrow and connect directly to internet!

apt-get install -f

can do some bad things. I would not be surprised if it removed gnome-desktop..

If you need to reinstall, we can try to work through this again.

weird... it only takes about 10 minutes to reinstall it, so I am not concerned. what does alt-get install -f do?

I will reinstall right now, and when i wake up in the morning i will hook up directly to the internet and run...

"sudo alt-get update"?

and this will allow me to install the build-essential? or do i need to run the

"sudo alt-get install build-essential ndiswrapper"

command while connected to the internet!?

apt-get install -f tries to fix dependency issues for you. In most cases it best to ignore the system when it tells you to run it. -- look at summary before you hit "y" -- If it wants to remove packages this is almost always bad.

after you reinstall:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install build-essential ndiswrapper

Thats better.....it will be MUCH easier and faster with a temporary wired connection.

ok! Thank you very much for helping out!

I got myself plugged directly into my router, and am on the internet. I ran the update command and was able to run the

sudo apt-get install build-essential

but when i run the command

sudo apt-get install build-essential ndiswrapper

i get an error that says couldn't find package ndiswrapper. I have the latest copy of ndiswrapper, but i am not sure how to install it. I downloaded v1.54(stable) from http://sourceforge.net/projects/ndiswrapper/ and am assuming it is the latest.

sorry try:


sudo apt-get install ndiswrapper-utils-1.9

I don't think that you have to build it from souce..

(which was reason one would pull down the build stuff)

If you do need to build from source.. its not really a big deal.

post the output of: "find ~|grep ndiswrapper" and I give you a quick howto.

ok. I managed to get the drivers installed, but now the intructions are telling me to run this command:

sudo ndiswrapper load_fw_ar5523 /etc/ndiswrapper/netwpn111/ar5523.bin

but this command is not working. apparently the load_fw command was removed in previous versions of ndiswrapper?

basically, I cannot get the light on my usb device to come on at all.

he is an output from ndiswrapper -l
athwpn : driver installed
autorun : invalid driver!
netwpn111 : driver installed

...there was an autorun file in the folder where i installed the other 2 inf files!

here is the output of the find ~|grep ndiswrapper:

:~$ find ~|grep ndiswrapper

phase two -- drop ndiswrapper and go with madwifi.

remove the driver from ndiswrapper.


sudo -i
cd /usr/src
wget http://nchc.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/madwifi/madwifi-0.9.4.tar.gz
tar -zxvf madwifi-0.9.4.tar.gz
cd madwifi-0.9.4
make
make install


Then reboot. Every time your kernel gets updated via update, you will have to do the following:



su -i
cd /usr/src/madwifi-0.9.4
make clean
make
make install

ok, the only information i could find online about what to do after i get madwifi installed...stated that madwifi does not support usb wireless adapters! now if that's old information and it does support it then what do i do now? I have it installed and my wpn111 still has no light. I can plug it into a windows machine and the light comes right on.

oh, and why do i have to type in the sudo command in front of almost everything i do? did i not make myself an admin or something?

Sorry about that, somehow or another I thought that was an internal device.. Not sure how I got that idea.. Maybe I got your issue mixed up with someone elses.. Following the instructions from the previous link that you provided regarding ndiswrapper.. did you make progress? I know that ndiswrapper allows for various windows drivers to be used.. Maybe you could try different versions..

i think i am tired of fiddling with it! I know that these usb guys act real weird sometimes, and I can't even get my blue light to come on. I'd rather get a super long ethernet cable, cause this is frustrating! :) it would help if I knew what I was doing in the o/s, but with my ignorance in Linux, and my device not doing what it's supposed to...... yeah!

Though, I am not giving up on ubuntu! I like it, just need to figure it out, and your guys help has been priceless. i just needed that little bit of help to get in the door.

Here is great lecture that can get you up to speed very quickly with regard to following and understanding most of what is being suggested in these forums -- When you see someone post a bunch of commands to help you solve a problem, it will help you understand "what" as well as the "why"..

Thank you very much for that. I will definitely get some use out of that page.
