Hi all

I'm using the latest ubuntu 11.04 (64bit) and as title suggests I've got an EDIMAX EW-7811Un wireless USB adapter, which states on the box it is compatible with Linux, but I can't get it to work!

It comes with a cd which has the drivers on for linux windows and mac.

firstly I tried installing it with the linux drivers and all I got was errors thrown at me in terminal.

Then I tried using the ndiswrapper and this worked to an extent such that in the ndiswrapper GUI it recognised the device was plugged in (or not, as I tried just to confirm).. However I could not find the device in ubuntu or any wireless networks.

I tried the guide on here about ndiswrapper and saw a patch was required for 10.10 however when I tried this on mine all I got from terminal was more errors.

Any one on here with the solution to installing this adapter on 11.04 please help!!!
