Make sure you have closed add/remove or synaptic first. Then, open a terminal and run

Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal

sudo dpkg --configure -a
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install wine

I had wine problems too. The old wine files I installed did not work on intrepid.
The budgetdedicated site did not work either with synaptic. So I searched and downloaded the file manually from:
It is the latest version 1.1.14 and now netmeter (NetMeter_v113.exe) works well.

good luck
