I use Ubuntu 12.04 LTS i386. I have a wire internet C.

I dont have internet in my computer, and well I only have wifi in my house. I use a little USB wifi adapter (TP-Link). I have installed ndiswrapper with my cd instalation and I think that I installed well.

The problem is that I cant use it when I open the console and type ndiswrapper it appears a menssage that said unable to found a version for ndiswrapper and I don't know what to do.

What can I do ?

There is a GUI application for Manage ndiswrapper called ndisgtk.

So install following :

sudo apt-get install ndisgtk ndiswrapper-common ndiswrapper-dkms ndiswrapper-source ndiswrapper-utils-1.9

You can install the driver wtth :

sudo ndiswrapper -i <DRIVERNAME>.inf


TP-Link gives Linux drivers. With NDIS you installs Windows drivers. So search in support section for Linux drivers for your Card. Be pricise for the card name. There are several cards. You can find it by command lsusb


You can install them from Official Ubuntu repository by installing following packages.

sudo apt-get install collectd-dev collectd-core collectd-dbg jockey-common inux-image-3.2.0-23-generic
