    How to install driver for USB wireless network adapter G54/N150 Wifi (WNA1000M)

    Hi,

    I am using Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Operating system in my desktop and I want to enable wireless network for it. So, I bought a USB wireless network adapter G54/N150 Wifi (Model no: WNA1000M). I wanted to install driver for this device. I tried following the instructions in this post.

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...light=WNA1000M

    But, it seems the 'compat' is changed to 'backports' and also the files in that tarball and I am stuck here. I am getting the following error message for the below command.

    *********@*********-PC:~$ cd Desktop/backports-3.11-rc3-1/
    *********@*********-PC:~/Desktop/backports-3.11-rc3-1$ ./scripts/driver-select rtlwifi
    bash: ./scripts/driver-select: No such file or directory

    Can anyone please help me installing the driver for this device in my system. Thanks in advance.

    Please try:
    Code:
    cd Desktop/backports-3.11-rc3-1/
    make defconfig-rtlwifi
    make
    sudo make install
    And proceed as before.

    EDIT: Which device do you have?
    Code:
    lspci -nn | grep 0280

    I performed the next following instructions as you suggested. After "sudo make install" command it asked me to reboot.When I gave reboot it got stuck on the ubuntu screen for a long time. I did a forced shutdown using power button. After starting again, I gave the command sudo modprobe rtl8192cu .

    But I didn't get any message after issuing the command. And also I cannot see wireless connections enabled.

    *********@********-PC:~$ sudo modprobe rtl8192cu
    [sudo] password for *******:
    *******@*****-PC:~$


    Please advise how I need to proceed from here.

    Thanks in advance.

    rtl8192cu is correct for your device. Let's see some diagnostics:
    Code:
    lsmod | grep rtl
    modinfo rtl8192cu | grep filename
    dmesg | grep -i rtl
