d-link wua-2340 installation problem


I am trying to install a wireless interface using D-link WUA-2340. There are good instructions for this, e.g.

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wi...-Link_WUA-2340

or

The idea is to install ndiswrapper first, which I did successfully so that 'ndiswrapper -v' yields

Quote:
utils version: '1.9', utils version needed by module: '1.9'
module details:
filename: /lib/modules/2.6.31-16-generic/kernel/ubuntu/ndiswrapper/ndiswrapper.ko
version: 1.55
vermagic: 2.6.31-16-generic SMP mod_unload modversions 586
Then you install the driver by running 'sudo ndiswrapper -i ~/Drivers/NetA5AGU.inf' This also appears to work as 'ndiswrapper -l' gives me the following:

Quote:
neta5agu : driver installed
device (07D1:3A0 present
The next step is to activate (?) the device by typing 'sudo modprobe ndiswrapper'. There are no complaints, but in all the instructions it says that that's when the wireless card is supposed to start blinking. No such luck in my case.

seems to have a similar problem, but nobody responded to this particular issue. Here is some output that might help. 'lsusb' gives me:

'dmesg | grep ndiswrapper' yields:
