Cannot get Wireless to work all the time Ubuntu 12.04
I tried the XP driver and all seems to work just fine. Thanks to everyone who views this thread. Jmg198
Hello to all who read this. Please help me!
I am 5 days new to Ubuntu 12.04 and anything Linux. I'm trying to get away from MS.
I have tried to get my Netgear WG311v3 adapter to work in Ubuntu 12.04. I read other things and downloaded ndiswrapper and downloaded the netgear drivers. All seemed to work great until I restarted the computer.
When I restart, the wireless connection won't work. I have to reinstall the driver to get it to work again. I do have a temporary wired connection. I have selected for the wireless to connect automatically and for the wired to not connect automatically.
I prefer help using the gui method as I am not very knowledgable in the other avenues. However, with good instructions I should be able to manage.
Thanks in advance for your help.

Reason: Problem solved
To my knowledge (which isn't very deep) there isn't a linux driver for the Netgear wireless adapter I use. I read somewhere that by downloading and using the ndiswrapper software that I could trick Ubuntu into using the windows driver. I have no understanding of the mechanics at work here but it worked. I did not go back to using windows! jmg198
