    Chili,

    I inserted the device and then ran the commands you suggested in post #148. My results are as follows:


    dzdb@dzdb-System-Product-Name:~$ lsusb

    Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 roothub

    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 : driver installed
    dzdb@dzdb-System-Product-Name:~$


    dzdb@dzdb-System-Product-Name:~$ dmesg|grep ndis
    [ 597.803141]ndiswrapper version 1.58 loaded (smp=yes, preempt=no)
    [ 597.842521] usbcore:registered new interface driver ndiswrapper
    dzdb@dzdb-System-Product-Name:~$


    In addition I ran the command "iwconfig". My result is as follows:

    dzdb@dzdb-System-Product-Name:~$ iwconfig
    lo no wirelessextensions.

    eth0 no wirelessextensions.

    dzdb@dzdb-System-Product-Name:~$


    So as you can see ndiswrapper 1.58 is installed and loaded and the netrtwlanu driver is also installed. However, per command "iwconfig" I have no wireless extensions. I'm pretty sure that is not a good thing. The Netgear N150 usb adapter, as per command "lsusb", is recognized though.

    So what are my next steps? Or is there nothing more you can do?

    Chilli,

    Could you please attach the 64-bit windows driver version for Netgear N150?

    I get the following error after installing your WinXP.zip that you shared in previous posts... Thanks for your consistent follow up on this issue.

    I'm not Chili555 but Tim Phillips has done yeoman work and produced a .deb package that seems to drive an RTL-8188CUS device perfectly. I'm using it with an Edimax device using the same chipset. Installing it is no more difficult than installing any other .deb package. I use Gdebi but it's not required. If you use Tim's package, you'll want to completely uninstall NDISwrapper first. Here's the thread I'm referring to. Check posts # 9 & 10.

    Not only does this drive the RealTek 8188CUs - and I suspect other Realtek 8188 & 819CU USB devices - but Tim has included DKMS functionality so kernel upgrades don't break the driver requiring a reinstall. Don't forget to blacklist the 'native' drivers so they don't conflict.

    And I am Chili and I'm back from a temporary hiatus on Cape Cod. Please try kurt18947's excellent solution and let us hear your report. Since he has the device, he's the best resource.
