View Full Version : [ubuntu] Lost Wireless Connection

May 9th, 2009, 11:54 AM
Hey all!

Before, I've been having some problems with the video, and found a solution and that was to install the latest kernel as mentioned here:


But as I did that and now just realise that I've lost the wireless connection, and when I went to do the modprobe ndiswrapper, I've gotten this:

FATAL: Module ndiswrapper not found.

I am completely stumped, its almost like a chain, one leads to another!

Edit: Forgot to mention, my wireless card is: WG311v3

and when I did:

ndiswrapper -l

Got this if it helps:
WARNING: All config files need .conf: /etc/modprobe.d/ndiswrapper, it will be ignored in a future release.
wg311v3 : driver installed
device (11AB:1FAA) present
