View Full Version : [ubuntu] Wireless Help Ndiswrapper and driver

August 10th, 2009, 09:12 PM
Was working fine in 8.10 updated to 9.04 now . Have had problems in past installing but have followed more than one user guide and allways got it going. Not this time. The one thing I think I need to do is put the netgear "extracted" drivers in the ndiswrapper location folder. Having problem's finding idiot guide. One more question which network manager should I be using? Ive tried a few. thanks Some output
