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

    Hi Chili,

    Per your post #101 I ran the following:

    Code:
    sudo su
    echo "blacklist rtl8192cu" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
    exit

    I then rebooted and ran the following:

    Code:
    ndiswrapper -l

    The results are as follows:

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


    In addition I ran the following:

    Code:
    lsusb
    lsmod|grep -e ndis -e8192


    The results are as follows:

    Note "netrtwlanu : invalid driver!"

    So what are my next steps? Should I uninstall and then install the "netrtwlanu" driver?

    Regrettably, I can find no better Windows XP files other than the ones you have tried. In fact, the WinXPlater files I attached were gathered from Realtek's own website and they seem to clash, in some way, with ndiswrapper. If you wish to continue to try ndiswrapper, I think the next step is to download and compile the latest version of ndiswrapper. http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...3#post12573923

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

    Chili, I thank you for all your efforts. I just have a few follow-up questions which are as follows:

    1) I blacklisted Ubuntu 12.04's native driver by using the following code:

    sudo su
    echo "blacklist rtl8192cu" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf

    What is the code to unblacklist Ubuntu 12.04's native driver?

    2) The netrtwlanu driver worked for Katsumodo (see post #55) and he has the same usb adapter which is Netgear usb n-150 wireless adapter. So why isn't the netrtwlanu driver working for me? Is he using a different version of ndiswrapper? My version is 1.57.

    3) I also have a Linksys N300 wireless-N usb adapter. Can you give me a driver (inf file) that will work with the Linksys N300 adapter and ndiswrapper 1.57 in Ubuntu 12.04?

    4) If you don't have a driver that will will work with the Linksys N300 adapter and ndiswrapper 1.57 in Ubuntu 12.04, then can you recommend a usb adapter that will work on Ubuntu 12.04 using ndiswrapper 1.57 (if necessary)?


    Once again thanks for your efforts!

    Please do:
    Code:
    gksudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
    At the end will be the line: blacklist rtl8192cu. Remove it, or, if you want to be able to recall it in case you want to experiment, comment it out like this: #blacklist rtl8192cu. The hashtag # says to the system to not act upon what follows. This can be used to add explanations as well: #chili recommends in forum post.

    After you have made your change, proofread carefully, save and close gedit. Then load the module again:
    Code:
    sudo modprobe rtl8192cu

    I have no idea which version he's using. I also have no idea why things occasionally work beautifully for one person and not at all for another.
    3) I also have a Linksys N300 wireless-N usb adapter. Can you give me a driver (inf file) that will work with the Linksys N300 adapter and ndiswrapper 1.57 in Ubuntu 12.04?
    Please tell me more:

    Chili, thanks for sticking with me. I inserted the Linksys N300 usb adapter in the pc usb port and ran the following code:

    The file is too big to add as an attachment, so I've given you a link to my personal Dropbox. https://dl.dropbox.com/u/58267392/xpae1200.zip It's still syncing, so give it a few minutes.

    Gotta love the Dropbox!

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

    Chili,
    I tried installing the bcmwlhigh5.inf file using the ndisgtk application. Again I received an "Invalid Driver" message. My questions are as follows:

    1) Did I attempt to install the correct file?
    2) Also I am wondering if I installed and loaded ndiswrapper properly. Is there a command that I can run to confirm proper installion and loading of ndiswrapper?


    I have run the following commands:

    ndiswrapper -l
    dmesg|grep ndis


    My results are as follows:

    dzdb@dzdb-System-Product-Name:~$ ndiswrapper -l
    bcmwlhigh5 : invalid driver!

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

    I am pretty confident that the .inf file is correct. It says, in part:
    ;-----------------------------------------------------------------
    ; x86 - Win2K, WinXP
    ;
    [Cisco]
    %Linksys_AE1200_DeviceDesc% = Linksys_AE1200, USB\VID_13B1&PID_0039
    %Linksys_AE2500_DeviceDesc% = Linksys_AE2500, USB\VID_13B1&PID_003A

    ;-----------------------------------------------------------------
    I've highlighted your device ID. Also, as you can see, it is for XP and x86, also known as 32-bit which I read above is what you've installed.

    I suggest you do as I previously suggested:

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

    Installing Ndiswrapper 1.58


    Chili555,

    Per post #109 you recommended that I install ndiswrapper 1.58.

    For me (I have two kids ages 5 and 3) to use a temporary Ethernet connection is a time consuming and major event. So I want to ensure that my instructions to install ndiswrapper 1.58 are “fairly” complete and accurate. I also have a few questions which are imbedded in my steps.


    1. Hook up the Ethernet cord. Then go to the terminal and type the following code:


    sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic build-essential



    1. Go here and download the 1.58 tar.gz and drag and drop it to your desktop so we can find it.


    I’m not sure what you mean by “go here”?

    How does one drag and drop the 1.58 tar.gz from the terminal to the desktop?




    1. Go to the terminal and run the following codes:


    cd Desktop/nidiswrapper-1.58
    sudo su
    make
    make install
    modprobe ndiswrapper
    exit



    1. In addition, to load (or attach to Kernel?) run the following code:


    sudo modprobe ndiswrapper


    1. Remove Ethernet cord



    1. Insert usb adapter




    1. Using the ndisgtk application (a gui) load either the netrtwlanu driver (for the Netgear N150 usb adapter) or the bcmwlhigh5.ini driver (for the Linksys N300 usb adapter)

    Are my steps correct?
