No other tutorials I can find are for Ubuntu 12.10 and for some reason or another I can't do any of them. lsusb brings up a list with what I want to find, but I don't know what to do from there. I tried to follow the instructions for installing ndiswrapper, but I ran into problems with the terminal. I don't know how to get the ndiswrapper packages from the install disc. As you can tell, I'm a complete Linux/Ubuntu noob. I cannot access the web, I'm at another computer typing this, and the terminal doesn't like me very much. Please help me get a netgear n300 wireless adapter work on Ubuntu. The install disc doesn't help, and nothing else I try works for weird reasons.
