    Don't know where to go from here. Tried installing the ndiswrapper-dkms as previously mentioned in the thread but I get another dependancy error.

    Going to reinstall ndiswrapper and whatnot.

    Post-install edit:

    Back at the backup I made.

    Installing the other packages - I had a ton of Clock skew errors, but regardless:

    Code:
    FATAL: Error inserting ndiswrapper (/lib/modules/3.5.0-23-generic/misc/ndiswrapper.ko): Operation not permitted
    Doing sudo modprobe ndiswrapper gave me no output, but without the sudo command, it's the above error.

    dmesg | grep ndis outputted three lines regarding registering new interfaces.

    I also now have a wlan0 source in iwconfig. Tx-Power's at 32dBm though, might be a bit too high.

    However, the problem is still here. I can't connect to my router - I inputted my WPA key and it's hung at connecting.

    EDIT: Added ndiswrapper to /etc/modules - problem seems to have fixed itself.

    Thank you.
    i love you
    Just have to get used to the interface now, woo reduced Windows dependancy.

    Edit: Do you know if this plays "nice" with Win7?

    I still need to use it - a reboot of Win7 reset my system clock to the year 2070 and some system icons are now gone.

    Doing sudo modprobe ndiswrapper gave me no output
    Which means, roughly, 'command executed as ordered and I have no errors or warnings to report.'
    but without the sudo command, it's the above error.
    Loading a module requires administrative priveleges, aka 'sudo.' Hence, the Operation not permitted.

    Glad it's working!

    I don't think I'm quite done yet.

    Rebooting the OS causes the driver to shut off again... and I get the Fatal error from using modprobe on the ndiswrapper module.

    Do I have to reinput everything upon reboots?

    Please repeat the process I linked above, except the download of course, and let me have your report.

    Reproducable, but still tedious.

    Everything works, but I still have to input those five lines every time I want to reboot my OS.
    and getting certain programs to work with 64bit sometimes crashes Ubuntu
    Is there any way to automate it?

    (Yes, it still works - I thought I broke something on the reboot because the drivers weren't working.)

    Please reboot so we have a clean slate. Is the wireless working? If not, please do:
    Code:
    sudo modprobe ndiswrapper
    Now is it working or do you get a fatal error? If it loads and the wireless works fine, then let's automate:
    Code:
    sudo su
    echo ndiswrapper >> /etc/modules
    exit

    I put ndiswrapper in /etc/modules... I get a Fatal error when I don't make install, etc, etc.
    However, I find myself having to make install and whatnot every reboot. Is this natural?

    No way, no how! What I'd like you to do is run this sequence after a reboot, copy and paste from the terminal to a text document and paste it here so I can examine it to see what is going on. http://paste.ubuntu.com/ Then give me the link that's created when you do the paste.
    Code:
    sudo modprobe wl
    I assume this will be an error, but let me see it anyway.
    Code:
    cd Desktop/ndiswrapper-1.58
    make
    sudo make install
    sudo modprobe ndiswrapper
    dmesg | grep ndis
    Thanks.

    Ubuntu has a pastebin subdomain? Neat.

    I'll edit this post in an hour (posting from my Win7 partition at the moment) with the results from the sequence and then the results from the first code block.

    Edit:
    Ok, now the driver seems to want to boot on startup.
    As well, I get the following output (Don't even need Pastebin):
    Code:
    FATAL: Module wl not found.
