Alright basically I've been trying Ubuntu 9.10 64bit out for awhile but am still a complete idiot when it comes to it. I am trying to use the info on https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/Driver/Ndiswrapper to get D-Link dwa-130 to work. I get to the part of putting the .inf in. If I put the XP inf in the whole system freezes and when I restart there is no login menu anymore. So I reinstalled and tried the 2k driver. It installs but then pops up that the hardware wasn't found. It shows up on lsusb. I just need some help on what to next. If you need any logs or info just tell the command to use because I'm new to unix <.<
Thank you :)

a lsusb output would be good, also please confirm that you're using 64-bit XP drivers and not 32-bit ones.

I can't use the XP driver or the wireless thing crashes. Then I cant do any command in the terminal, it just hangs. Then when I restart I lose the login screen. I'm using the 2k driver which I'm betting is 32 bit. It installs fine but doesnt find my d-link.

you should get 64-bit drivers. 32-bit drivers won't work. also, take a look here:

I looked that over. It sounds good if I could ge tthe xp 64 bit to install. Everytime I do my system gets damaged. Should I try Vista 64 bit?
Also I have the E1 version if that makes a difference.

I'm in this boat also. Exactly the same as drackor1991 is describing.

With the XP drivers crashing the whole thing too? Honestly, I just gave up. I'm running it on a VM :/
