This is your wireless adapter. Unclaimed means that there is no driver attached to it. All you need to do is download the driver.

http://driverscollection.com/?file_cid=390167517302a3000180e546212

You also need to install ndiswrapper

http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/n/ndiswrapper/ndiswrapper-common_1.50-1ubuntu1_all.deb

That link should be it, otherwise (if you have internet some other way on the laptop) go to add programs and type ndiswrapper in the search and install from there.

In the driver download will be a .sys and .inf file in the driver section. Put them in the same folder on your desktop. Open a terminal

cd ~/Desktop/enter the name of the folder with the drivers here

then run


sudo ndiswrapper -i net5416.inf
That will install the driver.

Check this by entering:


ndiswrapper -l
It should come up as driver install and device present. Then enter:


sudo ndiswrapper -m
Then maybe


sudo modprobe ndiswrapper
If it doesn't work after that, try rebooting.

After your done, post the output of
lshw -C Network

It's an automated ndiswrapper troubleshooting guide that I put together.

Hope it helps.
