View Full Version : [ubuntu] wireless woes

October 9th, 2010, 04:36 AM
Hi there: my old G USB network stick died and I also cannot get my internal ethernet to pick up my router.

I've tried installing ndiswrapper, but I keep getting prompted to insert the installation cd for ubuntu's Jaunt Jackalope, which is what I am currently operating.

Idon't have an installation disk. I installed this version a while ago via usb stick (which I no longer have). Is there any way I can install ndiswrapper without having to use a ubuntu installation disk?

I'm hoping installing ndiswrapper will solve my inability to connect wirelessly to the net via either my ethernet card of the new NetGear N100 usb network stick I just purchased.

Thanks so much.

Do you have network access at all?

If you don't, check out aptoncd (http://aptoncd.sourceforge.net/).
