    Please use code tags - if you are using New Reply button - highlight text and use the # button in the text box header.

    If using Quick Reply then [code] at the beginning and [/code] at the end.

    Re: NETGEAR N600 WNDA3100 Wireless configuration issue in Ubuntu 12.04 TLS

    Welcome to the forums rajashekar3 !

    Unless I missed it in the lsmod, it doesn't look like ndiswrapper was loaded. Please try -
    Code:
    sudo modprobe -v ndiswrapper
    Does the usb adapter work after this?

    Which version of windows driver are you using with ndiswrapper? 32 bit or 64 bit?

    Please post the outputs of -
    Code:
    lsb_release -cd
    uname -mr
    cat /etc/modules
    cat /etc/rc.local
    And like Wild Man asked, please use 'Code' tags for posting the outputs. If you need to see an example with screenshots on HowTo, please follow the "Using Code Tags" link in my signature below.

    Re: NETGEAR N600 WNDA3100 Wireless configuration issue in Ubuntu 12.04 TLS

    I wasted considerable time in finding out the right installation method for WNDA3100 Netgear N USB Network adapter. In the end it was actually quite simple. First, understand the reason why this Network adapter does not work. 1. As your output above shows, it uses Braoadconn chipset. Unfortunately, Ubuntu and other Linux OSs have not developed a generic for this chipset mainly because only Netgear seem to be using on very few of its products.
    2. Netgear only has Windows drivers. 3. Obviously windows drivers do not work under any linux system.
    Solution: To make the driver work under Ubuntu/Linux you will need TWO programs: 1. WINE (to install the driver) 2. NDISWrapper - a program that grabs these drivers and make them work under linux. So you will have to download and install Wine and the NDISwrapper.
    (The best way to install both Wine and Ndiswrapper is through synaptic software option. Be sure to check mark Ndis GTK if not already checked) The snynaptic automatically installs everything without you have to input any commands in the terminal)
    GETTING THE WINDA3100v2 drivers: You can download these drivers directly into your download. CAUTION: Netgear may not have Windows XP driver clearly marked. Because WINE only works Windows XP you will have to find the right Win XP drivers and download.
    Because you cannot delete the extracted driver files it is best to create a folder (I created mine inside downloads) and leave them there. Ubuntu's archive manager will extract them. But make sure the extracted files are put back in the same folder)
    Start Wine and install the driver. Wine will install it in "C" drive. Let it stay there.
    Start Ndiswrapper. Browse to the folder where you put the extracted driver file. Ndiswrapper will grab it and install it for you.
    You may have to restart. At this point most like Ubuntu will automatically grab the USB adapter. If not just click on the wireless icon in the upper right hand corner and then add the network connection. You should not have any problems after this install if you leave everything intact and not delete any driver or other directories/folders.
