    can't connect wirelessly-please help


    I recently bought D-Link DWL-G650M notebook adapter. I installed the drivers and card in Windows - and it works fine.
    How do I get the card to work in Ubuntu. I'm a newbie, so please provide simple directions if possible.
    I have installed ndiswrapper-common, ndiswrapper-util-1.9 and ndisgtk
    I tried installing the driver through Windows Wireless Drivers, it said the driver was loaded, but it didn't show the card. Also, none of the lights on the card worked
    Thanks for any help

    Did you do...
    Code:
    sudo modprobe ndiswrapper
    ...? If no errors, run:
    Code:
    sudo lsmod
    Do you see ndiswrapper there? If it is run:
    Code:
    sudo ifconfig
    ...and see if it is showing up as wlan0. If so you should be able to finish configuration in the Ubuntu network configurator.

    Thanks
    Should I have the card inserted in the computer before I run these commands in the terminal?
    Thanks

    Yes, especially when configuring with the Ubuntu Network configuration utility...
