I'm fairly new to Ubuntu and I'm getting sick of not being able to fix this error. I just want to use my wirelss adapter (Netgear WNDA3100). I have ndiswrapper installed through the ubuntu software centre, it works fine until I try to install the driver (from my usb drive) for my adapter. the full error says:
"Module could not be loaded. Error was:
FATAL: Module ndiswrapper not found.
Is the ndiswrapper module installed?"
I can't find anything useful online, I don't know if this OS just hates me or I'm bad at it being I'm new. I've tried following the first answer (suggestion #2) on this page, but I always get the error:
"tar (child): ndiswrapper.tar.bz2: Cannot open: No such file or directory
tar (child): Error is not recoverable: exiting now
tar: Child returned status 2
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now"
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
