    Alrighty then. Now we try the hard way:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic build-essential
    Download this file: http://sourceforge.net/projects/ndis...ar.gz/download

    Drag and drop it to your desktop. Right-click it and select 'Extract Here.' Then do:
    Code:
    cd Desktop/ndiswrapper-1.58
    make
    sudo make install
    modprobe ndiswrapper
    dmesg | grep ndis

    Well, sir or madam, now we're getting somewhere! Now let's check:
    Code:
    ndiswrapper -l
    iwconfig

    I'm off to shop with Mrs. Chili; I'll check in later. Good luck.

    That's from post #60. As I suspected, not correct for your 9020 device. Checking #82...

    EDIT: Yes, please. Do:
    Code:
    sudo ndiswrapper -e bcmwlhigh5
    sudo rm -rf /etc/ndiswrapper/*
    sudo ndiswrapper -i Desktop/Broadcom_bcm43xx_USB_32_64bit_v2/bcmn43xx64.inf
    sudo modprobe -r ndiswrapper
    sudo modprobe ndiswrapper
    iwconfig

    like the people in the post before... you are awesome. Thank you so much for your help. I can't wait to learn more about Ubuntu. I hope there are others that can be just as helpful within the community, as I am sure they are out there.

    There are many that are just as or more helpful. I was happy to help. Have fun!
