    sudo apt-get install ndiswrapper and there is a GUI front end called ndisgtk or something search in Google I'm sure you'll find it. Then just provide the windows driver to the GUI p when asked
    http://packages.ubuntu.com/raring/ndisgtk. You might want to try mint pretty sure its included by default and its ubuntu based

    You have a wired connection that works? My bad just looks like you sudo apt-get install ndisgtk https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wi...er/Ndiswrapper.

    May be it's a better idea to get a newer release of Ubuntu instead and see if it works better? Ubuntu 11.10 ends next month (May 9, 2013).
