    And before that I tried messing around with ndiswrapper
    And what was your experience? Do you have the Windows XP .inf and .sys files available? Mind if we try again?

    I never could find the right files. The only thing I have is the small driver CD that came with the USB adapter. The files I see on the CD are things like "autorun.inf","setup.ini","TRANS.tbl", "autorun.exe" etc. How do I install ndiswrapper again? sudo get-apt ndisgtk?

    Yes, exactly.

    Let me look around a bit before we try to extract the autorun.exe or install it with wine. Back in a few minutes.

    Is yours a 32- or 64-bit system?
    Code:
    arch
    I found the files right where you found the Linux drivers; on Realtek's site!

    Re: Netgear USB N150 wireless adapter keeps asking for password ubuntu 12.04

    First we need to unload and blacklist the native driver:
    Code:
    sudo su
    modprobe -r rtl8192cu
    echo "blacklist rtl8192cu" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
    Now we load the Windows driver. Download the file I've attached to your desktop. Right-click it and select Extract Here. Now back to the previously opened terminal:
    Code:
    ndisgtk
    When the window opens, point it to Desktop/WinXP/netrtwlanu.inf and let it install the driver and firmware files. Now in the terminal:
    Code:
    modprobe ndiswrapper
    exit
    Any improvement?

    I ran sudo apt-get install ndisgtk and from what it looked like it installed correctly. However when I point ndiswrapper at that .inf file I get this message in ndiswrapper:

    "Module could not be loaded. Error was:
    FATAL: Module ndiswrapper not found.
    Is the ndiswrapper module installed?"

    Ideas?

    Please do:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install ndiswrapper-dkms
    After it's done, try again. Meantime, I shall draft a bug report.

    So it looks like I installed the dkms module successfully. I installed the windows driver, and as it stands without rebooting I have no connection. I noticed that the hardware status in ndiswrapper said "Hardware Present: No" so I clicked on "Configure Network" upon which an error message popped up saying, "Could not find a network configuration tool." Does this mean that we need to switch back to the default network configuration tool instead of using wicd? (if so, how would I do that?) Also no wireless options or responses are appearing/happening in either wicd, or network tools.



    Just rebooted and still seeing the same issues.

    ID 0846:9041 NetGear, Inc. WNA1000M 802.11bgn [Realtek RTL8188CUS]
    The inf file I attached includes this:
    [Netgearcus.NTx86]
    ;;%Netgearcus.DeviceDesc% = RTL8192cu.ndi, USB\VID_0846&PID_9041 ; Netgear 88CUSfor B/G/N
    I feel it's the correct file for your device. Please post:
    Code:
    ndiswrapper -l
    dmesg | grep ndis
    That's an l for 'list.' Thanks.

    I doubt it. Let's troubleshoot first.
