Ubuntu/ wireless for my laptop


I have been trying to get my wireless capability operational on my new inspiron 2200. Here is what I have found and done so far ( Newb here)



Downloaded this ndiswrapper gui:

http://www.users.on.net/~spohlenz/u...buntu1_i386.deb

Put in home folder. tried to install with this this command:

sudo dpkg -i ndisgtk_0.2-0ubuntu1_i386.deb



Thjis is the error i recieved and I really dont know where to go from here.

Unpacking replacement ndisgtk ...
dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of ndisgtk:
ndisgtk depends on ndiswrapper-utils; however:
Package ndiswrapper-utils is not installed.
dpkg: error processing ndisgtk (--install):
dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
Errors were encountered while processing:
ndisgtk

Check that page:

http://ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net/m.../Distributions

Then look for Ubuntu and get back here in case you cannot fix it.

Try these instructions. They've always worked for me.
