    ndiswrapper (iw_set_auth:1602: invalid cmd 12
    I think there is a solution in the next later version of ndiswrapper, which is included in the latest version of Ubuntu.

    You might need an open wireless connection.

    I'm on ubuntu 12.04 and this thread worked for me !!!

    Many thanks to marianlibrarian and chili555. I pretty much followed this post throughout and chili555 provided answers to many places where I was stuck.

    After installing and using ndiswrapper using the files provided here, and typing iwconfig into the terminal I only had:

    lo no wireless extensions

    eth0 no wireless extensions

    I then used this set of commands from chili555:

    sudo modprobe ndiswrapper dmesg | grep ndis iwconfig

    but the modprobe did not work. I did this:

    http://askubuntu.com/questions/13289...pper-not-found

    then reran the previous commands. it worked!

    then all I needed to do was add the string "ndiswrapper" to /etc/modules per chili555's suggestion, so that it would automatically use the wireless at start-up.

    Thanks again for the advice!

    Hello all,

    Thank you very much for all your help, this solved my problem also and the wireless adapter is working fine following your instructions.

    One remaining problem: I noticed that I can't detect SSIDs on the 5Ghz frequency. Any suggestion to make WNDA3100v2 work with 802.11n?

    Thank you

    I spent a couple of hours last night reading everything on the internet and trying everything to get my N600 Wireless Dual Band USB adapter to work.

    The funny thing is, I don't know what broke through and allowed my PC to see the wireless network.

    I use 12.04, and thanks for all the information!

    Hello everyone, and thanks for a good thread.

    I have managed to with the information provided here to get my new N600 to find the wireless networks available, since i'm using WPA2-PSK security on the network I can't connect, the animated wireless connection symbol will just act like it's trying to connect then after a while the "Enter password or passphrase for the wireless network" box will appear, if I then enter the password passphrase, the animated connection icon starts to blink again and again after a while the password box will appear.

    Does anyone here know if it's possible to connect to a secure wireless network with the N600?
    Or if it's possible to connect to the N600 hardware and change it's settings like you connect to a router?
