hi, did you run ndisgtk as root? (sudo ndisgtk)
If yes, try installing via the console : "sudo ndiswrapper -i wg111g.inf" if it still doesn't work, post the output here...
Another problem might be that you're installing from a directory where only the .inf file is present, many drivers also need the accompanying .cab files.

Thanks for the speedy reply, when i run "sudo ndiswrapper -i wg111g.inf" i get the message "sudo: ndiswrapper: command not found"

As a side note, when i tried to run make for the tar file of ndiswrapper 1.53 i got the message: "Cannot find kernel version..." etc etc

http://forums.debian.net/viewtopic.php?t=28369 - My howto. It's for Debian, but should work on any distro.

j.todd, when I run the make command for ndiswrapper 1.53 while following your howto I get the long error:

O.K. I was able to sort out that problem by installing ndiswrapper 1.48 instead of 1.53 and now my internet works (i sent this message in ubuntu )
