    How do I install Rosewill RNX-N180UB wireless Adapter

    Hi there,

    I was wondering how to install the Rosewill RNX-N180UB wireless adapter?

    http://rosewill.com/products/1590/productDetail.htm

    It works on a XP PC, but not on my Ubuntu workdesk without playing with the code. I have downloaded the package, but since I'm a Noob: help would be really appreciated. (+ there's no computer shop that knows Linux around here...damn!)

    Thanks!

    I am having the very same problem!
    I found on the Rosewill website they have drivers for linux but the installation instructions do not seem to work for me. :[
    Maybe you will have some different luck...

    Same here
    I'm afraid I just went out and bought the Netgear WG111 (v3) usb adapter....and it worked right out of the box....but I am still looking for a way to get the N180ub working on my other linux machine. Hopefully soon...

    I'm having a problem with this too. I just installed 10.04 today and need to get internet set up so I can stop using Windows for a bit (I'm a linux noob). When I googled this problem all I got were multiple links to this thread. I have no idea how to get the driver from rosewill working and I tried ndiswrapper to no avail.

    What's wrong with the installer? From first glance at the driver all you need to do is extract the tar and use the makefile method, and post the error please.

    I'm pretty much completely new to Linux so I don't really know how to install it at all without the package manager deal, I don't know what the makefile method is. I tried to follow the instructions included with the driver but I couldn't really follow them. I saw a video on how to do the ndiswrapper thing but when I install the driver it just says something like unable to tell if the hardware is present. But on the installed driver list is says hardware is present. Any help is appreciated.

    May have nothing to do with your issue, but installing linux-backports-modules-wireless-lucid-generic got my getnet USB Wireless Adaptor working.

    Same story, here is what I've learned.
    {this part is all in the folder documents included in the linux driver tar file}
    First: Rosewill drivers
    For new folks to Linux, this is the scare part.
    1. download the tar (its like a zip)
    2. extract it (anyplace will do)
    3. cd <extracted long name>/drivers
    4. execute the command "make"
    5. execute the command "./clean"
    6. execute the command "sudo insmod 8712u.ko"
    (what that command does is loads the modules to your kernel)
    7a. execute the command "ifconfig -a" look for a wlan#
    7b. execute the command "sudo ifconfig wlan# up" (mine fails here)
