    ndiswrapper-utils-1.9 is definitely what you need. I am surprised it didn't install directly. The executable is actually in ndiswrapper-common but won't work if the user-space part is not there. You might try:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install --reinstall libc6
    sudo apt-get install ndiswrapper-utils-1.9

    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?

    Hi ,
    I have the same issue after I upgraded to 12.04. Here is the dmesg I got:
    dmesg |grep ndis
    [ 15.917271] ndiswrapper version 1.57 loaded (smp=yes, preempt=no)
    [ 16.634290] ndiswrapper: driver bcmn43xx64 (,08/26/2009, 5.10.79.30) loaded
    [ 17.183545] usbcore: registered new interface driver ndiswrapper

    [ 83.144693] ndiswrapper (iw_set_freq:437): setting configuration failed (00010003)

    repeated many times. I appreciate any help.

    May I see:
    Code:
    iwconfig
    My suspicion: http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawik...etgear_WNA3100
    When I checked the values of WNA3100, I saw its Tx-Power is around 42 dBm and other parameters are correctly set.

    Thanks Chili555 for your help. Here it is:

    iwconfig

    Tx-Power:32 dBm
    That seems a bit high. Let's try as the link suggests:
    Code:
    sudo iwconfig txpower 15
    See if it sticks:
    Code:
    iwconfig
    Now does it connect? If that helps, we can make it permanent.

    The command in the link is not quite correct.

    It tries to connect. For some reason it is not getting an IP from the server. Will have to check server then come back . Thanks for your help.
    Which command?

    I entered :>> iwconfig
    .

    To see if the command sticks, run:
    Code:
    iwconfig
    Then you ought to see, as you requested:
    Code:

    Re: Netgear WNDA 3100 v2 wireless adapter -- How to install?

    After Struggling for several days and trying various suggestions ....and no luck in getting the netgear wnda3100v2 installed on v12.10 ...I did manage to get the windows wrapper routine to import the driver...and it is actually linked to a device. But the network manager has no clue that the wireless connection is there. I am ready to start all over again but not sure where to start.

    .

    iwconfig says:

    eth0 no wireless extensions.

    lxcbr0 no wireless extensions.

    ndiswrapper -l says:

    bcmwlhigh5 : driver installed
    device (0846:9011) present

    I admit that I am a newbie with a capital N.... but where would be a good place to start in attempting to get the network adapter linked up with 12.10? Arrg.

    We all were new at one time; even ole Chili and even Linus! No worries. Are there any interesting messages here?
    Code:
    dmesg | grep ndis
    The pipe symbol | is on the right side of my US keyboard on the same key with \. Thanks.
