    ndiswrapper is obsolete and won't help you. A better idea is to ask about a real problem.

You don't need to download from sourceforge.net. You can simply use:

sudo apt update
sudo apt install ndiswrapper-common ndiswrapper-utils-1.9

You can read full instructions here.

    Thanks I tried the first and second step to install the driver but the third step which is sudo modprobe ndiswrapper gave me this modprobe: FATAL: Module ndiswrapper not found in directory /lib/modules/5.8.0-40-generic what to do now? @WinEunuuchs2Unix Jan 27, 2021 at 11:46

    Yeah I have done this command and installed the driver after there is command ndiswrapper -l which gave me this rtbth : driver installed device (1814:3298) present (alternate driver: rtbth) and the third command sudo modprobe ndiswrapper gave me this output modprobe: FATAL: Module ndiswrapper not found in directory /lib/modules/5.8.0-40-generic . I am talking about the last command's output. @WinEunuuchs2Unix Jan 27, 2021 at 12:11
