Many Many thanks to you.
I have been running through the forum/net trying to solve this issue of getting the WNA1100 Netgear USB WiFi dongle working on Ubuntu an easy way and so I hope the following helps.
Download and install the following in this order:
In attachment (ndisfiles.tar.gz (132.1 KB) ).
Once you have installed the above in order of Step 1 you need to get a copy of the XP driver for the WNA1100 USB WIFI card. If you don't have it you can download it from the attachment to this post: WinXP2000.tar.gz (537.3 KB)
to uncompress the files either right click on it and Extract Here... or via command line type so for the files listed would be:
- tar xvf ndisfiles.tar.gz
- tar xvf WinXP2000.tar.gz
Now you need to install the XP driver to get the USB WiFi to work. So via command line in the Terminal.
then type 'ndisgtk' under run and make sure its as user root. Then click ok.
it will ask you to put in your su password and press ok.
The a GUI will pop up with Wireless Network Diver. Click the 'Install New Driver' and select netathuw.inf
Then plug in the the WNA1100 USB WIFI and all should be good.
Im new ish to linux so feel free to comment or correct.
