Finally got my wireless to work with Ubuntu at home too. Since Linux does not support my wireless iball usb adapter, I brought a netgear adapter from office. I’ll possibly drop down to Chandni and buy one for myself. It’s strange that iball isn’t Linux compatible. In fact It’s more expensive that netgear adapters. Anyways alls well that ends well. Now I am looking for a good Dreamweaver replacement on Ubuntu.

Ubuntu supports a system known as NDISWrapper to use Windows wireless device drivers under Ubuntu. Here’s how I configured the netgear wireless adapter:

  1. Go to System → Administration → Synaptic Package Manager and install ndisgtk
  2. Then go to System → Administration → Windows Wireless Drivers and choose Install New Driver
  3. Look for your driver. It will be a file with the extension .INF. You will find it in the Drivers folder on your driver CD that came with the usb adapter.
  4. Choose the location of your Windows .inf file and click Install.
  5. Click OK.
  6. You will find the Wireless icon activated on the Taskbar panel on the right. Click on it and select you network. If it is protected it will ask for the password. Give the password and you are now connected.
