    NetGear WNA1000M 802.11bgn [Realtek RTL8188CUS]

    I have got a new USB wifi adapter of Netgear with Realtek Chipset. I am using UBuntu 12.04. I tried to install it according to the directions in Ubuntu forums. But I failed. Can anyone please help me out. I am a newbie in Ubuntu.
    Below are some of the commands I ran.

    :~$ lsusb

    When the computer is first started , the wireless doesnot show. When I un plug and then plug again , it shows.
    It tries to connect but then fails. I have no passwords in wifi
    Can anyone help me out please on how to install?

    Moving to the Ubuntu forum (even though Ubuntu is based on Debian, true - may as well get the attention of Ubuntu-specific users).
