    Red face Problem installing drivers for an EH102 desktop wireless card

    Hey guys, I'm new to the whole ubuntu scene, and i recently made my desktop computer a XP / ubuntu dual boot. However, due to the layout of our house, we bought a wireless adapter (an EH102 desktop adapter) so we could avoid a huge string of cables. of course, it uses a Windows-based driver, and because of that i was told to install it with ndiswrapper. I found another thread and did what it said to in there, namely:
    Code:
    cd /cdrom/driver/winxp_2k (browse to the location of the driver file)
    sudo ndiswrapper -i mrv8335.inf (your INF file name may vary)
    sudo ndiswrapper -l (shows if the driver installed successfully, this should show "mrv8335 - driver installed, hardware present)
    sudo ndiswrapper -m (write the configuration to modprobe)
    sudo modprobe ndiswrapper
    sudo modprobe -r ndiswrapper
    sudo modprobe ndiswrapper
    However, once I entered the first modprobe line, i got the error message "Could not open 'lib/modules/2.6.24-16-generic/misc/ndiswrapper.ko': No such file or directory". The ndiswrapper -l said that the driver was installed sucessfully, yet the error says something's up with ndiswrapper.
    Help? D:

    In my machine, the path is not as listed here, but it's
    Code:
    /lib/modules/2.6.24-16-generic/ubuntu/misc/ndiswrapper/ndiswrapper.ko
    You might check your system:
    Code:
    sudo updatedb
    sudo locate ndiswrapper | grep .ko
    Updating your database will take a few seconds. Then try specifying the entire path:
    Code:
    sudo modprobe /lib/modules/2.6.24-16-generic/ubuntu/misc/ndiswrapper/ndiswrapper.ko
    Let us know.
