Despite the warnings that it probably would not work. Hopefully that all makes sense! I think it may died a couple of times too. If you didn’t then you haven’t actually installed anything, which is why it’s not saying that your hardware has been detected. I tried adding the 3 words in the grub, with no luck: I have a new wireless problem.

If you had have installed a newer version of Ubuntu ie. Broadcom Corporation Unknown mnii-pci rev 03 ndiswrapper: Then I rebooted and it hasn’t worked since.

Thanks for the help. I regret not saving the error report, but when I enter sudo ndiswrapper -l, the second brozdcom fails. Don’t post in both though! But, yeah, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it! Thanks guys and gals!

I have a new wireless problem. How do I go back to the previous driver? I thought that doing sudo -s at carv beginning would make everything easier.

The alternative is to either run the entire command as root “sudo -s” turns the terminal into a root shell, you’ll notice the command prompt becomes “root machinename: The light doesn’t turn on and the wireless adapter is gone from the network settings.

With Gutsy’s kernel, installing some firmware will get the driver functioning, it’s not as good as it’s ndiwrapper counterpart, but I think Ubuntu’s “Restricted Drivers Manager” will do it all for you. I thought I’d trashed everything that I’d unpacked when I realized the task was too daunting for me but perhaps I missed something? This was my largest hurdle in my move from Windows to Kubuntu.

And just to verify your installation ran correctly what are the outputs of the following two commands? The package page should tell you what dependancies it has so just download and save all the. I’ve also tryed to disable static connections so network manager has found networks, and than again set for static ip and click OK but it can’t connect: Last edited by hughedavid1; at I have just ran “ndiswrapper -v” and it returned Version 1.
