I am brand new to Linux systems (Day 2) With no prior knowledge (PHD in Physics, not Linux) I had my wireless up and running via NDISWRAPPER, but when Ubuntu updated, and I restarted my computer (as prompt) I was left without my wireless connection.

My network is run by a Atheros AR5B93 Wireless Network Adapter with a Atheros AR8151 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller

Ndiswrapper is saying the driver is installed, and hardware found. Command MODPROBE NDISWRAPPER leaves me with FATAL: MODULE NOT FOUND

I've tried reinstalling NDISWRAPPER and the drivers with no avail. Help would be appreciated.

Please give us more information about your wireless card. Open a terminal and run and post: lspci -nn | grep 0280. The pipe symbol | is on the right side of my US keyboard on the same key with \. –  chili555 Jun 9 '13 at 19:19
