I am completely lost


I installed Ubuntu 6.06 today and am completely lost. I am trying to get a wireless adapter to work but that's not what I am talking about here. I downloaded and installed ndiswrapper but I can't find where it is or how to use it. Any help would be appreciated.

Sigh...You probably don't even need ndiswrapper. What is the exact model number of your wireless card?

There is no WUSB54GS.

There is a WUSB54G ... Driver and docs available at: http://prism54.org/ ...,
and a WUSB54GP v.4 Driver and docs at http://rt2x00.serialmonkey.com/wiki/index.php/Main_Page ...

Those two cards should work out of the box with Ubuntu, I think. Have you tried poking at the card from Desktop|Administration|Networking? Also look for documentation at the Ubuntu website.

There is also a WUSB54GP-BP which has a Broadcom bcm43xx chipset, and which you probably won't be able to get working right anyway.

Oops. You're right. I guess it's too new for my list. A search of these forums would have led you here.
