    I ran the codes without errors but it did not get the device running.

    Let's see if there are any informative messages:
    Code:
    ndiswrapper -l
    That's a lower-case L for 'list.'
    Code:
    dmesg | grep ndis
    The pipe symbol | is on the right side of my US keyboard on the same key with \.

    I ran the codes
    Code:
    ndiswrapper -l
    returned "netrtwlanu : driver installed" while
    Code:
    dmesg | grep ndis
    didn't return anything.

    What..?? Was the device inserted at the time? If so, and the .inf file was correct for the device, it ought to have also returned 'device present.' Check:
    Code:
    lsusb
    Does the device show up as before?
    Device 003: ID 2001:330d D-Link Corp.
    Now check the .inf file:
    Code:
    less Desktop/xp/WinXP/netrtwlanu.inf   <--or WinX64 if yours is a 64-bit system
    Do you see the parts I quoted?
    %DLink.DeviceDesc% = RTL8192cu.ndi, USB\VID_2001&PID_330D
    ;;************************************************ ****************************
    ;; IDs for X64
    ;;************************************************ ****************************

    [DLink.NTamd64]

    %DLink.DeviceDesc% = RTL8192cu.ndi, USB\VID_2001&PID_330D
    Get out of 'less' with q.

    Perhaps the module needs to be loaded first:
    Code:
    sudo modprobe ndiswrapper
    ndiswrapper -l
    dmesg | grep ndis
    This case gets more interesting by the moment!

    OK I re-ran the codes with the device in and got: driver installed device (2001:330D) present for "ndiswrapper -l" and nothing returned for the second code.

    Excellent.

    Please do:
    Code:
    sudo su
    echo ndiswrapper >> /etc/modules
    exit
    Reboot so we have a clean slate. Then run:
    Code:
    iwconfig > revelias.txt
    dmesg  >> revelias.txt
    Find the text file revelias.txt in your user directory and paste it here: http://paste.ubuntu.com/

    Give us the link so we can study the messages and try to see what's going wrong.

    I ran
    Code:
    sudo su
    echo ndiswrapper >> /etc/modules
    exit
    and rebooted with the device in which resulted in kernal panic with the gui crashing. I then rebooted without the device and was able to log in but once i plugged the device in it crashed the system.

    Here is the link to the output:

    Yikes! Any clues here?
    Code:
    cat /var/log/syslog | grep ndis | tail -n20
    If there are few or no lines of output, look here:
    Code:
    cat /var/log/syslog.1 | grep ndis | tail -n20
