I ahve got Netgear USB N150 wifi adapter for my Ubuntu 12.04 LTS desktop. But I could not install it after trying for 5 hours.
I have many combinations done. I have already formatted it once. So if there is a tested method , I am ready to format and start again
Bus 001 Device 008: ID 0846:9041 NetGear, Inc. WNA1000M 802.11bgn [Realtek RTL8188CUS]
Bus 003 Device 002: ID 046d:c05a Logitech, Inc. Optical Mouse M90
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
I then tried to install the drivers from the Realtek website. and install them . But no fruitfull results. My home wifi network is without any password. The Wifi is trying to connect and then fails.
I then even tried to install the Windows installation given by Chii555 in a post with ndisgtk. But failed.
But surprisingly after 5 hours research , the blue light of the Wifi adapter is not lighting up and now there is no Wireless activity. (!!!!!!!!!!!)
ifconfig even doesnot show the adapter also.
:~$ lsmod | grep -e ndis -e 8192

Please help. I need this to work to test my project.
