Here are the links for ndiswrapper:

http://packages.ubuntu.com/natty/mis...wrapper-common

http://packages.ubuntu.com/natty/mis...pper-utils-1.9

http://packages.ubuntu.com/natty/net/ndisgtk

You should find them through synaptic, have you enabled multiverse and universe repositories?

Ok,can you plug in a network cable in your laptop? Or, download the files through your desktop pc and then copy them to a USB pen drive or maybe burn a CD?

Btw, did you get a CD with drivers for your wireless USB?

Good, cause you need the drivers later on after you have installed the necessay downloaded files.
