I have just upgraded my old Toshiba laptop to Ubuntu from 10.04 to 12.04. Before the upgrade ndiswrapper worked perfectly so I could install the Windows XP driver for my Belkin wireless card. Now I have upgraded to 12.04 I cannot re-install my Windows XP driver for my wireless card. The following error message appears:-
"Module could not be loaded. Error was:
FATAL: Module ndiswrapper not found.
Is the ndiswrapper module installed?"
The ndiswrapper is installed and it shows the my Windows XP driver is installed and hardware is present, but the wireless card is not working. Also, in Applications, I have the shortcut to start ndiswrapper. Using this shortcut, ndiswrapper starts OK.
I have also tried using Terminal to install and use ndiswrapper, but I get the same error message.
