    trying to set up wireless internet access in Ubuntu 9.1

    I don't do any wireless at all so can't help with it specifically, but check this wireless troubleshooting guide to see if it helps while you wait for others to respond:

    Hope it helps!

    This is your wireless. There is no linux driver for this card. You need to use ndiswrapper + the windows xp driver to get it to work.
    SourceForge.net: Linksys WMP11v4 - ndiswrapper

    I'm reading over https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wi...er/Ndiswrapper and trying to follow instructions in section 2.3.

    What is a desktop CD? Is that the CD I used to install Ubuntu?

    What is a live session?

    I have the Synaptic Package Manager already installed, but could not locate the "ndis".

    What do I do?!

    Yes.

    Running the OS off the CD, rather than from a harddrive installation.

    Do you have a wired connection active?

    If so, make sure your repos are updated.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    and then install as so
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install ndisgtk
    This is the graphical front end for ndiswrapper and will pull in everything you need to run it.

    No wired connection. Is it easier to get my wireless NIC going with one? From the output file I posted up top, can you tell if the drivers for the wired NIC is installed?

    This is your wired NIC. Looks like it should be working. There's very few ethernet cards that don't work out of the box.

    It is definitely easier to get things going if you have a wired connection.

    Ok... I am going to make a long ethernet cable. Then we can take it from there.

    OK.... I am up and running with a long patch cable. What can I do to get my wireless card up and running?

    Now run the commands that reed9 asked you to run.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install ndisgtk
    Then you still need the WinXP driver, for NDISwrapper to use. It must be a Win2k or WinXP driver. Vista and Win7 do not work, even a driver that is combined WinXP/Vista will most likely not work.
