Ndiswrapper questions...

I believe i am using ndiswrapper version 1.49, and im using 7.10 for ubuntu.

Now the chip set id i get for using lsubn, something or other, i see that the "d-link system"
is 07d1:3a07.
Now I have read many guides on how to configure your internet with ndiswrapper, but all of which assume you bring much more knowledge of Linux than a beginner would have ~.~

So, I am unsure how to get my wireless D-link working with ndiswrapper, and how to get the drivers considering I don't have a connection in the first place.

Can anyone lead me in the right direction?

Ubuntu comes with many ndiswrapper drivers already installed. Is ndiswrapper loaded (check with command lsmod).

Did you install the ndiswrapper tools?

If the driver isn't already installed to ndiswrapper then you'll need to have the Windows driver in order to install it.

The command, aassuming the ndiswrapper tools have been in installed is

ndiswrapper -a path-to-windows-driver
