    Netgear USB N150 wireless adapter keeps asking for password ubuntu 12.04

    I've seen several other forum posts on this site as well as others about similar problems but have yet to find a solution. I'm new to ubuntu so I apologize in advance for my n00bery. I have a Netgear N150 Wireless USB Micro Adapter (WNA1000M). I've tried so many different ways to get this stupid thing working and I worry that with so many different attempts I may have a problem. I heard once that using ndiswrapper was a possible solution, but also ready that you should avoid using it if possible. So i attempted to remove ndiswrapper and I'm pretty sure I did it wrong.

    Here is my latest attempt:
    jon@jon-desktop:~$ lsusb
    Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
    Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
    Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
    Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
    Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
    Bus 001 Device 004: ID 0846:9041 NetGear, Inc. WNA1000M 802.11bgn [Realtek RTL8188CUS]
    Bus 004 Device 002: ID 046d:c016 Logitech, Inc. Optical Wheel Mouse

    So from running lsusb we can see that I should install the rtl8188cus driver right? So I downloaded the driver from Realtek, unzipped it and ran the following:

    jon@jon-desktop:~$ sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic build-essential

    So then I reboot and still same problem. The wireless continually tries to connect to my router and asks for the password over and over and won't connect. Before I tried all of the above I tried what was listed in this forum: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1806839 At one point the wireless would work! However, after unplugging the ethernet I was using, the connection eventually is lost. I know it's not a signal problem because I can use this same micro adapter on any other computer in the house and it works just fine.

    And before that I tried messing around with ndiswrapper and like I said probably removed ndiswrapper incorrectly.......

    What am I doing wrong?? Do I need to remove ndiswrapper (correctly) and all these other multiple drivers that are probably installed now? If so, how? HELP!

    Thanks in advance ( I know....your eyebrows are all probably raised at this point...lol)

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

    I ran into the same problem. Same chipset, different manufacturer. I took the easy way out and downloaded RealTek's driver. It comes with an install script which make it very easy. Ubuntu 11.10 and Mint 13 required blacklisting the driver included in the kernel, Ubuntu 12.04 did not. Here is the Realtek web site:

    http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/...&GetDown=false

    RTL8188CUS is the one I'm using and it's fast & reliable. The caveat with using Realtek's driver is to keep the folder where you can find it again. A new kernel will kill the driver and require re-running the script. There's no uninstall/reinstall, just run the install script again and the lil' blue light should start flashing again.

    I wish it were that simple. However, it still continues to ask for the password over and over and never connects.

    I know....your eyebrows are all probably raised at this point.
    A little bit...

    First, rtl8192cu is built in to the kernel in 12.04 and covers your device. I am wondering why you tried ndiswrapper and downloaded the Realtek driver instead of the driver that's built in. Mostly, I am wondering how many competing drivers are loaded now. Please post:
    Code:
    lsmod | grep -e ndis -e 8192
    If the built in and ndiswrapper also tried and failed to connect, it's likely not the driver then; it's likely Network Manager.

    Thanks.

    Dueling drivers - or circular firing squads - is a good point. There does seem to be some problem with the built-in driver and the RTL8188CUS chip. When trying the built-in driver it would find the adapter but may or may not connect. Usually not and if it did show a connection there was no data transfer taking place. I had to blacklist rtl8291cu on some installs when using RealTek's driver. It might be network manager, I don't know and I've never had much luck with wicd.

    Have you ever tried removing NM altogether and setting up /etc/network/interfaces? Then you will know if it is or isn't NM.

    I suspect NM and wpa_supplicant and their interaction with the specific driver is at the heart of more problems than we know. The only solution most try is yet another driver with the same old faulty NM and/or wpa_supplicant...and then another.

    Thanks for the help Chili! Here is the results to lsmod | grep -e ndis -e 8192

    jon@jon-desktop:~$ lsmod | grep -e ndis -e 8192
    rtl8192cu 66592 0
    rtl8192c_common 46721 1 rtl8192cu
    rtlwifi 64087 1 rtl8192cu
    mac80211 465127 3 rtl8192cu,rtl8192c_common,rtlwifi
    compat 13247 4 rtl8192cu,rtlwifi,mac80211,cfg80211

    so meaning there's a few too many right?

    Not really; maybe just the wrong ones. Please try:
    Code:
    sudo modprobe -r rtl8192su
    sudo modprobe 8192cu
    Any improvement? Any errors, warnings, etc.?

    Sorry; I made a mistake. I should have said:
    Code:
    sudo modprobe -r rtl8192cu
    sudo modprobe 8192cu
    Sorry for the mis-step. Please try again.
