    Chili,

    No, I never did get the ndiswrapper tar.gaz on by desktop. I will do that tomorrow morning. Then run the commands. What exactly is the ndiswrapper tar.gaz. The first link that you sent me I was unable to get it on my Ubuntu PC desktop. On the second link, when I double click the image, I do see the "Extract here" option. Things should work better tomorrow morning.

    Go here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/ndiswrapper/files/

    Download ndiswrapper-1.58.tar.gz. Get it to your desktop. Right-click the package and select 'Extract Here.' Then open a terminal and do:
    Code:
    cd Desktop/ndiswrapper-1.58
    sudo su
    make
    make install
    modprobe ndiswrapper
    exit
    Is there any error? If so, post it here and we'll troubleshoot.

    If there is no error, your wireless should be working. It may take a reboot.

    Chili,

    I downloaded ndiswraqpper, got it to my desktop, and then extracted it. I then ran the commands per your post #122 instructions. I believe everything ran successfully. My results are as follows:

    Since I returned the Netgear N150 micro wireless usb adpater, I need to go to Staples and purchase another one.

    I believe my remaining steps are as follows:

    1) Purchase the Netgear N150 micro wireless usb adapter.
    2) Insert the usb adapter in my Ubuntu 12.04 computer.
    3) Use the ndisgtk application to install the netrtwlanu driver (hopefully I get a driver installed message).

    4) Go to the terminal and do the following commands (otherwise I will lose the connection on the reboot):


    sudo su
    echo ndiswrapper >> /etc/modules
    exit

    5) At this point I should be able to connect to the internet.


    My question are as follows:
    1) Based on my results did I installed ndiswrapper 1.58 successfully?
    2) Are my remaining steps correct?

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

    1) Based on my results did I installed ndiswrapper 1.58 successfully?
    Yes, indeed! You are well on your way to being a driver dawg!
    2) Are my remaining steps correct?
    Almost perfect. I suggest you add one step so that the sequence is:

    1) Purchase the Netgear N150 micro wireless usb adapter.
    2) Insert the usb adapter in my Ubuntu 12.04 computer.
    3) Use the ndisgtk application to install the netrtwlanu driver (hopefully I get a driver installed message).
    3a) Do the following command:

    sudo modprobe ndiswrapper

    If it's already loaded, it won't hurt; if it's not loaded, it will be.

    4) Go to the terminal and do the following commands (otherwise I will lose the connection on the reboot):


    sudo su
    echo ndiswrapper >> /etc/modules
    exit

    You are doing well, I have my fingers crossed!

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

    Chili,

    I will run the following commands:


    3a) sudo modprobe ndiswrapper


    4) sudo su
    echo ndiswrapper >> /etc/modules
    exit

    When I run the above commands in the terminal, do I need to have the Verizon FIOS cable plugged in?

    Not at all. I suggest it be detached.

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

    Chli,

    The results are disappointing.

    I tried to install the netrtwlanu.inf driver. I received an "Invalid driver" error message. See results for the command ndiswrapper -l below:

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


    I used the Ubuntu software center to install the ndisgtk application. Is my ndisgtk application buggy? Do I need to reinstall the ndisgtk application using the terminal?


    I also ran the following:

    dmesg | grep ndis

    My results are as follows:

    dzdb@dzdb-System-Product-Name:~$ dmesg|grep ndis
    [ 131.888106]ndiswrapper version 1.57 loaded (smp=yes, preempt=no)
    [ 131.911968] usbcore:registered new interface driver ndiswrapper
    dzdb@dzdb-System-Product-Name:~$

    It appears that ndiswrapper 1.57 is loaded and ndiswrapper 1.58 never loaded. Very confusing. What happened? Do I need to reinstall Ubuntu 12.04 and then blacklist the native drivers, install ndisgtk and ndiswrapper 1.58 through the terminal?

    So what are my next steps?

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

    Ouch. When you installed ndisgtk through the Software Center, you over-wrote all the fine work you did compiling 1.58. If I missed that subtlety above, I apologize. Please do:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get remove --purge ndisgtk
    sudo apt-get remove --purge ndiswrapper*
    That removes everything you now have installed so we can start fresh. Now do:
    Code:
    cd Desktop/ndiswrapper-1.58
    sudo su
    make clean
    make
    make install
    If you get this at the end, it installed correctly and there is no need to post everything for a confirmation:
    install -m 755 loadndisdriver /sbin
    install -m 755 ndiswrapper /usr/sbin
    install -m 755 ndiswrapper-buginfo /usr/sbin
    make[1]: Leaving directory`/home/dzdb/Desktop/ndiswrapper-1.58/utils'
    Then proceed:
    Code:
    cd
    ndiswrapper -i Desktop/driver_folder/netrtwlanu.inf
    ...where 'driver_folder' is the folder containing the Windows XP driver files. Next do:
    Code:
    modprobe ndiswrapper
    exit
    ndiswrapper -l
    Errors, warnings?

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

    Chili,

    I installed the ndisgtk application about a month ago. Did that still over wrote the fine work I did installing ndiswrapper 1.58?

    I'm not quite sure, but I suspect the version of ndisgtk you installed calls on it's brothers the 1.57 version. That's why I'd like to remove it and use the old-school methods: sudo ndiswrapper -i.

    What does this tell us?
    Code:
    ndiswrapper -v
