    I read some where in the post someone else had the problem.
    And did you do what I suggested they do? See posts #137 and 138.

    Re: Wireless USB N300 Netgear install

    Hello. I installed ubuntu on my laptop a few months ago and found that I liked it, installed it on my old Dimension 4300 and tried to get this device to work, failed, and gave up. Now recently I purchased a Dell Vostro 200 to use as a HTPC/PVR which came with Windows 7 installed. I set it up to dual boot with Ubuntu 12.04 64 bit and would really like to get this wireless adapter working under Ubuntu, as even though using win7 as a OS will be easier for me to set up, I really would like to use Ubuntu. I have tried to follow the steps listed here on the various posts and have not succeded. I followed Chili's advice on building ndiswrapper from source.

    Here is the most common asked info:
    dylan@htpc-Vostro-200:~$ ndiswrapper -l
    bcmwlhigh5 : driver installed
    dylan@htpc-Vostro-200:~$ sudo modprobe ndiswrapper

    Bus 008 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub

    Is this able to be used on a 64 bit system? Or am I just going to either have to tether or buy a new card?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    It's tricky, but you'll need 64-bit .inf files. Is that what you have?

    It all depends on whether you'd like to persevere despite all odds and probably succeed and maybe not; or if you'd like to spend US$12 for a new known working device and be done. I'll be happy to help in either case.

    Re: Wireless USB N300 Netgear install

    I am stubborn so I will try to get it going I have not had time to play with it the last few days and will have a busy week but very much appreciate your quick response. if you would point me to some specific posts to double check and make sure I did everything properly that may be the best place to start. again thanks

    dylan@htpc-Vostro-200:~$ sudo modprobe ndiswrapper
    WARNING: All config files need .conf: /etc/modprobe.d/options, it will be ignored in a future release.
    First, let's fix this. Instead of just removing it or re-naming it, let's see what's in it and do it correctly:
    Code:
    cat /etc/modprobe.d/options
    Next, this implies you have the wrong .inf file:
    dylan@htpc-Vostro-200:~$ ndiswrapper -l
    bcmwlhigh5 : driver installed
    It ought to include device present indicating that the .inf file and the hardware see and recognize each other; they don't. Where did you get the files? Are they specifically labelled for 64-bit?

    You might erase what you have now:
    Code:
    sudo ndiswrapper -e bcmwlhigh5
    sudo rm -rf /etc/ndiswrapper/*
    ...And then install these. Download the file to your desktop. Right-click it and select 'Extract Here.' Open the terminal and do:
    Code:
    sudo modprobe -r ndiswrapper
    sudo ndiswrapper -i Desktop/Broadcom_bcm43xx_USB_32_64bit_v2/bcmn43xx64.inf
    Note is specifically claims to be for 64-bit. Also, the .inf file claims your device; here is a snip:
    ; inf-File for Broadcom bcm43xx based WLAN Devices
    ; 64bit

    [version]
    Signature = "$CHICAGO$"
    Class = Net
    ClassGUID = {4d36e972-e325-11ce-bfc1-08002be10318}
    Provider = %Broadcom%
    Compatible = 1
    DriverVer=08/26/2009, 5.10.79.30

    [Manufacturer]
    %Broadcom% = Broadcom

    [Broadcom]
    %BCM4xx01_DeviceDesc% = BCM43XXN64, USB\VID_050D&PID_825C
    %BCM4xx02_DeviceDesc% = BCM43XXN64, USB\VID_050D&PID_6050
    %BCM4xx04_DeviceDesc% = BCM43XXN64, USB\VID_050D&PID_615A
    %BCM4xx03_DeviceDesc% = BCM43XXN64, USB\VID_0846&PID_9011
    %BCM4xx03_DeviceDesc% = BCM43XXN64, USB\VID_0846&PID_9020
    Now, reload ndiswrapper:
    Code:
    sudo modprobe ndiswrapper
    And check:
    Code:
    ndiswrapper -l
    iwconfig
    dmesg | grep ndis
    I have explained quite a bit here because I hope you and a lot of searchers will be interested in a greater understanding of the process.

    Re: Wireless USB N300 Netgear install

    Okay here we go:

    I ran through this and then accidentally closed my terminal (I am connecting to the computer via SSH from my laptop) here is what it gave me before I did anything:

    cat/etc/modprobe.d/options: told me no file exists

    So then I did the code posted to erase what I had, downloaded the files and:

    dylan@htpc-Vostro-200:~/Desktop/Broadcom_bcm43xx_USB_32_64bit_v2$ sudo modprobe -r ndiswrapper
    WARNING: All config files need .conf: /etc/modprobe.d/options, it will be ignored in a future release.

    lo no wireless extensions.

    Hope this gives some clues.

    Re: Wireless USB N300 Netgear install

    Let's take one thing at a time. First:
    $ cat /etc/modprobe.d/options
    options saa7164 card=7
    You probably do need this file. Let's rename it so the system stops complaining:
    Code:
    sudo  mv  /etc/modprobe.d/options  /etc/modprobe.d/options.conf
    Next, this:
    couldn't open /home/dylan/Desktop/Broadcom_bcm43xx_USB_32_64bit_v2/bcm43xx64.inf: No such file or directory
    I believe it is bcmn43xx64.inf.
