View Full Version : [ubuntu] Having trouble with internet

May 7th, 2008, 08:51 PM
Hi Guys,
I am having a problem with my wifi connection. I am using a netgear
WG111 54 Mbps Wireless usb adapter. When I plug it in it connects for a
bit and I can use the internet but when I try to look at pages that take a little more time to load(such as ubuntu forums. I am lucky if I get 2 pages) it disconnect. Although It will let me retrieve some mail from evolution. Is there a way to fix this?
I have ubuntu on my laptop and the same wireless usb works great! But on
my desktop(Compaq desktop pro. Not sure of the memory) it wont work.
Please help me with this or I am going to have to put xp on it!(And I
dont want to do that!)

Do some searching on ndsiwrapper. It seems that some people are using ndiswrapper to get your model to work properly.
