    Looking good so far! Does it scan?
    Code:
    sudo iwlist wlan0 scan
    Is the wireless switch on or off?
    Code:
    rfkill list all
    Any interesting news here?

    Re: Netgear WNDA 3100 v2 wireless adapter -- How to install?

    Network Manager will disallow the less secure, slower wireless if wired ethernet is available as yours is. Please detach the ethernet, give NM a few moments to notice the change in state and try again:
    Code:
    sudo iwlist wlan0 scan
    If there are still no scan results, let's do some diagnostics:
    Code:
    dmesg | grep -e ndis -e wlan
    If there are scan results, click the NM icon and connect.

    Re: Netgear WNDA 3100 v2 wireless adapter -- How to install?

    We wonder why wlan0 is not ready, obviously. If there are any wlan0 settings in /etc/network/interfaces, that would prevent Network Manager from handling wlan0, so let's check:
    Code:
    sudo gedit /etc/network/interfaces
    It ought to look like this:
    # interfaces(5) file used by ifup(8) and ifdown(8)
    auto lo
    iface lo inet loopback
    The comments, prefaced by #, might be different or missing, but the declared interface should be lo only. If there is any reference to wlan0, remove it. Proofread, save and close gedit. Now let's check NM's conf file:
    Code:
    sudo gedit /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf
    It should read:
    [main]
    plugins=ifupdown,keyfile
    dns=dnsmasq

    [ifupdown]
    managed=false
    Make sure that managed=false. Proofread, save and close gedit. Now restart networking:
    Code:
    sudo service network-manager restart
    Any errors or warnings? Any improvement?

    Re: Netgear WNDA 3100 v2 wireless adapter -- How to install?

    The outputs look exactly like you described. Restarting didn't help ...

    But I have to add, strange things are happening here. Just to be sure, I decided to check the adapter again on Windows 7 (I have both OSs on different partitions installed) - suddenly Windows was complaining that the driver for the USB adapter didn't install correctly (it worked before) and my wireless settings were messed up. Some not working "native wifi default profile" that I could not change was giving itself priority over the normal wireless profile that was still working as it should. I read on some other discussion boards that this was due to the driver software so I went for deinstallation and reinstalling. And now even the Windows software (installed from the CD) isn't recognising my adapter anymore.

    I don't know if the two things have anything to do with each other. Is it possible that all the things I have been trying for getting a driver on Xubuntu changed something in that respect?

    I'm utterly confused and think I will now just go for buying this very long ethernet cable so I can connect to my router directly.

    I would never say it's impossible, because nothing is impossible, but I'd say it's very, very unlikely. My suspicion is that the device is, in some way, electrically defective.

    And if you do end up replacing your device, there are 'friendlier' choices than the wnda3100v2.

    Re: Netgear WNDA 3100 v2 wireless adapter -- How to install?

    I can't "configure network" in "wireless network drivers" It says "could not find a network config tool". Even though i was able to get my Netgear WNDA3100v2 to work with the Broadcom hybrid driver and ndiswrapper. I had some of the previous problems in this post, and the answers here fixed them.

    I don't have any sort of internet connection to the machine with ubuntu.

    I tried sharing my phone connection to my laptop and then share that connection to the machine with ubuntu. All it would do is surf the net but never download the nm-tool with "apt-get install network-manager", just sit at 0%.

    sudo modprobe ndiswrapper
    dmesg | grep ndis

    [ 8.213398] usbcore: registred new interface driver ndiswrapper





    Do i need a network manager or how to i connect to a network i see when i scan???


    sudo iwlist wlan0 scan

    gives me over 10 networks all with various ESSIDs and info.

    Under Wicd Network Manager it says No wireless networks found. There are no options to mess with for wireless in here either.
