Hi there!

I'm new to Ubuntu and have just installed 12.10 32-bit.

I have a Netgear WNA3100 and have done some searching on how to get it to work. I downloaded and built ndiswrapper 1.58rc1 as I was getting a problem with the gui tool not finding the module.
I then downloaded the bcmwlhigh5 drivers and installed them using ndiswrapper.

I can list and view my network, but it wont authenticate, it continually brings up the the psk entry box. Looking in the syslog, it seems to be failing at authentication
tail -n 50 /var/log/syslog | grep wlan3:

Jan 12 20:15:24 ubuntu NetworkManager[982]: <info> (wlan3): supplicant interface state: scanning -> inactive


The stupid thing is, I can create a hotspot on my Android phone and it CAN authenticate and connect to it?

I've tried changing the various WPA2 settings in my router with no avail.

Any pointers in to where to try next is greatly apreciated,

Regards,
