After following the instructions I installed the proper drivers and ndiswrapper program, etc., a month ago.
But last night I updated to the latest distro and this broke my system: it can no longer detect my wireless USB adapter.
The blue light works but there's no connexion between the system and the USB adapter. I've tried several different workin USB ports to no avail. When I type sudo ndiswrapper I get a fatal module. When I check the ndiswrapper program it says. I hardware is detected. I use the driver from netgear - bcmwlhigh5.inf
Since this is a month old USB it can't be the adapter. Is there something I'm missing? Should I revert to older kernels and leave the more recent ones alone? 3.2.0-29-generic is the latest I have.
I use Ubuntu 12.04 LTS

Thanks in advance.
