I am trying to make my Dlink DWA-111 work on Ubuntu 12.10 in vmware workstation. since Vmware doesn't recognize my integrated wifi card as a wifi card, I changed to a USB one. This one is recognized in windows 8, but when I launch my Ubuntu VM, it doesn't work at all. I'm still getting connected.
Disabling the USBb from the host and activating it on the Vm:
shows me the dlink usb card
show me the rt73 module
>iwconfig, ifconfig, iwlist
I tried many solutions found on Google and forums as compiling drivers, getting
ndiswrapper -l shows me my driver with the ID of the device but when I enter
sudo modprobe ndiswrapper I got:
FATAL:Module ndiswrapper not found.
and still no wifi on my Ubuntu.
Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.
