netgear wna3100 usb not working


i have just installed Bodhi 2.4 32 bit when i look for wireless connections there is nothing in the list. I have netgear WNA3100 wireless usb adapter. after looking around this and bodhi's forums i think i need a ndiswrapper. i have no clue what that is or where to get it or what to do with it. I have seen others comment on do some sort of code thing i dont know how to do that. Sorry but really need a complete walk through (so far i have not found one) if they exist please point me that way
thanks

This link may be useful to you. As it suggests, type this command in a terminal and see how it responds.
Code:
lspci |grep -i net
Let us know what the output of that command is.

That's good. You're learning fast. Now, do you have the firmware-realtek package installed?

Have you installed the firmware-realtek package as I suggested earlier? And what distro are you using?
