    Code:
    iwconfig
    sudo iwlist scan
    dmesg | grep rt2
    Sorry for the long delay, I had things to do.

    Anyways, I tried typing in the command to add the device ID and it keeps bringing this thing up asking for a sudo password and I can't type anything after that. I know that this sudo stuff refers to user access but how do I modify it to make that damn message go away?

    Any sudo type command requires you to enter your password. Even though you don't see anything on the screen (no echo--****--nothing). Just press enter when you have finished your password.

    Re: Comprehensive ndiswrapper troubleshooting guide

    Hi all,

    The ndiswrapper version 1.56 shipped with Ubuntu (especially 11.10 or any 64 bit) is sometimes buggy/not working. Alternatively, the latest stable version 1.57 needs to be compiled by hand:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get remove --purge ndiswrapper-common ndiswrapper-utils-1.9 ndisgtk
    sudo rm /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/kernel/ubuntu/ndiswrapper/ndiswrapper.ko
    sudo rm /etc/modprobe.d/ndiswrapper.conf    #not neccessary, only if you want to clean up
    sudo rm -r /etc/ndiswrapper/*               #not neccessary, only if you want to clean up
    sudo apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r) build-essential
    wget http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/ndiswrapper/stable/1.57/ndiswrapper-1.57.tar.gz
    tar -xvf ndiswrapper-1.57.tar.gz
    cd ndiswrapper-1.57
    make
    sudo make install
    sudo depmod -a
    sudo update-initramfs -u
    The metapackage for the kernel-headers should also be installed (e.g. linux-headers-generic, -generic-pae, etc., whatever "uname -a" shows). The driver needs to be compiled again after a kernel upgrade, so dont remove the folder "ndiswrapper-1.57". Recompiling by

    Code:
    cd ndiswrapper-1.57
    make clean
    make
    sudo make install
    sudo depmod -a
    sudo update-initramfs -u
    The package "ndisgtk" must not be installed from the repositories! If you need the GUI compile it, too:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install intltool
    wget launchpad.net/ndisgtk/0.8/0.8.5/+download/ndisgtk-0.8.5.tar.gz
    tar xvf ndisgtk-0.8.5.tar.gz
    cd ndisgtk-0.8.5
    make
    sudo make install
    sudo cp *.png /usr/share/icons
    sudo cp *.xpm /usr/share/icons
