Re: Realtek RTL8190 PCI card and ndiswrapper help.
For some reason the Linux drivers with this card don't work with Ubuntu Karmic and Lucid anymore, and none of the Windows drivers via Ndiswrapper won't work either.
What I did was I scoured the internets for some drivers and eventually downloaded Realtek 819xP drivers (think I found them by searching 8192E drivers) and used their WinXP drivers with ndiswrapper to get it working.
Someone somewhere told that Lucid kernel (2.6.32-) would bring back the 8192E drivers so I upgraded my Karmic to Lucid but I'm still using ndiswrapper drivers with it. The connection with these drivers is a bit flaky so I need to investigate whether I can find the kernel drivers for this card.
The card I'm using is an A-Link Wireless-N 300 PCI card, but lspci lists it as Realtek RTL8190 card.
Hope this helps someone. Too bad I can't remember exactly where I downloaded the working drivers. It might have been Realtek's own site but I'm not sure.
