    Netgear WG111T not working on Precise?

    Hey all!!!

    Wow its good to be back on Ubuntu but its inevitable that there will be issues and sadly they have arisen early this time around! I'm having trouble getting my Netgear WG111T Wireless-G USB adapter working on Precise and I have been having trouble getting Ubuntu to detect it or install any drivers. I have been able to find fixes for older versions of Ubuntu but they have become obsolete with the release of Precise. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

    Re: Netgear WG111T not working on Precise?

    Did you try ndiswrapper?

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r) build-essential dkms ndiswrapper-utils-1.9 ndiswrapper-common ndisgtk ndiswrapper-dkms
    Try the atheros5523_usb_XPw9x driver from one of the attached tarballs.

    Its from the German forum:

    http://forum.ubuntuusers.de/post/2205984/

    I have split up the original tarball because of the size. The other 2 drivers are older.

    Should I install the ar5523.sys file with wine or is there another way????

    Re: Netgear WG111T not working on Precise?

    Install the .inf via terminal:

    Code:
    sudo ndiswrapper -i /path/to/folder/atheros5523_xpusb.inf
    Check:

    Code:
    ndiswrapper -l
    If the driver is shown, load the module:

    Code:
    sudo modprobe -v ndiswrapper
    and replug the stick. Check:

    Code:
    lsmod
    iwconfig
    dmesg | grep ndis
    rfkill list
    sudo iwlist scan

    Re: Netgear WG111T not working on Precise?

    Then it is:

    Code:
    sudo ndiswrapper -i ~/Downloads/ath5523usb_mod1/atheros5523_xpusb.inf
    But I recommend this one:

    atheros5523_usb_XPw9x.tar.gz

    I get this output:
    Code:
    tyler@EL1333G:~$ sudo ndiswrapper -i ~/Downloads/ath5523usb_mod1/atheros5523_xpusb.inf
    couldn't open /home/tyler/Downloads/ath5523usb_mod1/atheros5523_xpusb.inf: No such file or directory at /usr/sbin/ndiswrapper-1.9 line 219.
