    got the nm back...lets not worry about it now.
    More concerned about not able to access network.

    Hi Chili555,

    Reposting the results of ping if you missed earlier.

    After a restart, nm came back and connected to network.

    output:

    SSH from troubled PC to laptop returns :
    "The server at 192.168.1.68 cannot be found"

    and

    from laptop to troubled PC
    "SSH program unexpectedly exited."

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

    Guys.... good news... I am now able to connect to network post changing my desktop to near-by router.
    It should be bloody distance issue between router and PC.
    I feel I am living in a palace not a 2 bed home.

    But any suggestions how to get TP-LINK WUSB work at around 10-15 mts.

    Btw..posting this from my troubled PC.

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

    Just measure the distance between router and troubled location = 10.8 meters... and as per specs... the WUSB should perform at 11M: -85dBm@8% PER.

    Chili555, I ran the commands as you suggested (i.e. post 52) which were as follows:

    Code:
    sudo ndiswrapper -d 0846:9041 netrtwlanu
    dmesg | grep ndis
    sudo modprobe ndiswrapper

    In addition I ran:

    Code:
    ndiswrapper -l

    My results are as follows:

    dzdb@dzdb-System-Product-Name:~$ sudo ndiswrapper -d 0846:9041 netrtwlanu
    [sudo] password for dzdb:
    WARNING: Driver 'netrtwlanu' will be used for '0846:9041'
    This is safe _only_ if driver netrtwlanu is meant for chip in device 0846:9041



    dzdb@dzdb-System-Product-Name:~$ dmesg | grep ndis
    dzdb@dzdb-System-Product-Name:~$


    dzdb@dzdb-System-Product-Name:~$ sudo modprobe ndiswrapper
    [sudo] password for dzdb:
    dzdb@dzdb-System-Product-Name:~$



    dzdb@dzdb-System-Product-Name:~$ ndiswrapper -l
    netrtwlanu : invalid driver!
    dzdb@dzdb-System-Product-Name:~$


    As you can see I got nothing on dmesg | grep ndis. The first time it said ndiswrapper version 1.57 loaded (post #80)

    Based on post #52 I was really hoping/expecting to connect and then lose connection on the reboot. Well that didn't happen. So what are my next steps?

    Hi Chili555,

    Appreciate you support for last couple of days.
    See you have good following on wireless related aspects.

    Cheers

    Let's look for a different .inf file. Please download, extract and install this one. For the benefit of the searchers, it is for 32-bit only.

    Before you do so, uninstall the earlier one:
    Code:
    sudo ndiswrapper -e netrtwlanu
    sudo rm -rf /etc/ndiswrapper/*
    Fingers crossed!

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

    Chili, I ran the commands that you listed in post 98 which were as follows:

    Code:
    sudo ndiswrapper -e netrtwlanu
    sudo rm -rf /etc/ndiswrapper/*


    My results are as follows:
    dzdb@dzdb-System-Product-Name:~$ sudo ndiswrapper -e netrtwlanu
    [sudo] password for dzdb:
    dzdb@dzdb-System-Product-Name:~$


    dzdb@dzdb-System-Product-Name:~$ sudo rm -rf /etc/ndiswrapper/*
    [sudo] password for dzdb:
    dzdb@dzdb-System-Product-Name:~$

    Then I tried to load the netrtwlanu.inf file coming from the WinXPlater.zip file. I received an "Invalid Driver" error message.

    I then ran the following status codes for your information:

    lsusb
    ndiswrapper -l
    dmesg | grep ndis

    My results are as follows:

    Chili, I noted that when you were working with katsumodo, posts 45 or 46, you advised him to unload and blacklist the native driver. So do need to do the same? And if so, can you give me the code?

    Chili555, in addition I ran code lsmod|grep -e ndis -e8192 for your information. My results are as follows:

    dzdb@dzdb-System-Product-Name:~$ lsmod|grep -e ndis -e8192
    rtl8192cu 97757 0
