    Having trouble getting Ubuntu to recognize Netgear WNA3100

    Hello all, I am in a predicament getting Ubuntu to recognize my USB wireless adapter. When I entered "lsusb" I got the following:

    Bus 002 Device 002: ID 0846:9020 NetGear, Inc. WNA3100(v1) Wireless-N 300 [Broadcom BCM43231]

    Of course, this was for the one particular hardware. What sort of Linux sorcery will I have to do in order to get Ubuntu to recognize this adapter and therefore make it work? Thanks in advance.

    You will need to install ndiswrapper and the Windows XP .inf and .sys files. Here is a long thread about the process: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...ht=0846%3A9020

    Please help me get you started. Please post:
    Code:
    lsb_release -d
    arch
    Thanks.
