So you need to blacklist it first in a file situated in etc/modprobe.d/
$sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist
add the following line in the blacklist file
save and restart. Check that after restart your wireless rausb0 disappears leaving only the modem in admin -> network.
Now install ndiswrapper 1.8. I'm not sure whether the default ndiswrapper provided in the cd works. I think it should. You can give it a try. Here's the link for ndiswrapper 1.8
Then extract the archive files
$tar zxvf ndiswrapper-version.tar.gz
Go to the directory created and type the following
$sudo make uninstall
$sudo make install
If you encounter problem with make command not recognised. It means that development tools are not installed properly. Pop in your cd and install
- kernel headers
via synaptic. This should enable make.
Now ndiswrapper is installed
Installing the drivers is next. Pop in your WUSB54G installation cd. And find the drivers. For me it is version 4. So i copied the version 4 directory which is WUSB54Gv4. Copied the folder to my user directory.
First check any drivers in ndiswrapper.
$sudo ndiswrapper -l
if there are any drivers installed uninstall it by
$sudo ndiswrapper -e drivername
follow by installing from the directory the inf file
$sudo ndiswrapper -i drivername
please remember the inf extension. In my case the drivername is rt2500usb.inf
So now restart and wireless should work. Configure your wireless connection in admin -> network
