    I thought it was installed by default. What does this tell us?
    Code:
    ndiswrapper -v
    If you get a version number, it is installed. If not, use the Ubuntu install CD and add it as a software source. With the CD not in the tray, please do:
    Code:
    sudo apt-cdrom add
    It will prompt for a disk to be inserted and then proceed to scan it and copy the index files. Then you may do:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install ndiswrapper-utils ndiswrapper-1.9
    It will try and fail to reach the internet but will get the files from the CD.

    Then proceed as above.

    Yess!!!! It worked I installed common and utils so now what do I do.

    What I was doing wrong was that I tried installing the folder, not the files inside of the folder

    Re: Wireless USB N300 Netgear install

    Hi there I have followed these instructions and now I have achieved this:

    woody@captain-coach:~$ ndiswrapper -l
    bcmwlhigh5 : driver installed
    device (0846:9020) present

    But I don't know how to proceed to "get connected." Nothing is happening. No "Wireless network detected"or anything:


    woody@captain-coach:~$ iwconfig
    lo no wireless extensions.

    eth0 no wireless extensions.

    vboxnet0 no wireless extensions.

    Can anyone help?

    This is with 10.04 LTS. Any suggestions appreciated.

    Let's see:

    dmesg | grep ndis
    rfkill list all

    ndiswrapper (import:242): unknown symbol: ntoskrnl.exe:'IoUnregisterPlugPlayNotification'
    There are three possibilities: First, that we compile ndiswrapper from source code and make a change to one file: http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index...82&atid=604452

    Second, that we check the bcmwlhigh5.inf and make sure it's an XP, not Vista, 7, etc. file and correct as needed.

    Third, that you upgrade from 10.04 to 11.10 and your troubles will be over!

    What would you like to do? I'll be happy to help in any event.

    The driver should be XP. It was downloaded from this thread.

    I will be upgrading to 12.04 in a little over a month, but I usually do my upgrades from clean install.

    My wife wants me out in the bungalow (beyond the ethernet cable zone) ASAP, so I guess that means I try option 1:

    Can you let me know whats involved here? I've been using ubuntu for quite a while now, but I'm still a noob when it comes to really getting 'under the hood'.

    Thanks again.
