So I decided to switch from Windows to GNU/Linux after seeing Valve's newest article regarding their Linux platform. I backed up all my important files from Windows and successfully installed Mint without any (at the time) problems. My PC was connected to the internet with a Linksys WUSB54G V4 wireless adapter and worked fine on Windows 7 with a hacked driver, but is having issues inside Mint. This is how I tried to get my internet working: Added Code: blacklist rt2570 blacklist rt2500 blacklist prism54usb blacklist rt2x00lib blacklist rt2x00usb to /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf Move r2500usb.inf and rt2500.sys to Home In Terminal: Code: sudo ndiswrapper -i rt2500usb.inf ndiswrapper -l sudo depmod -a sudo modprobe ndiswrapper[CODE] [/CODE] The last command is what gives me a problem, it says the module (ndiswrapper) is missing. Code: ndiswrapper -v Returns: Code: ERROR: modinfo: could not find module ndiswrapper module version is too old! utils version: '1.9', utils version needed by module: '0' module details: ERROR: modinfo: could not find module ndiswrapper You may need to upgrade driver and/or utils to latest versions available at [url]http://ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net[/url] So I'm pretty damn sure it's missing, but I did these to ensure: Code: sudo modprobe -r ndiswrapper Returns: Code: FATAL: Module ndiswrapper not found.[CODE] [/CODE] Code: sudo apt-get --purge remove ndiswrapper-utils Returns: Code: sudo apt-get --purge remove ndiswrapper-utils Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Virtual packages like 'ndiswrapper-utils' can't be removed 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 103 not upgraded. Code: sudo rm -r /etc/ndiswrapper/ Returns: Code: Nothing. Code: sudo rm -r /etc/modprobe.d/ndiswrapper Returns: Code: rm: cannot remove `/etc/modprobe.d/ndiswrapper': No such file or directory Code: sudo rm /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/kernel/drivers/net/ndiswrapper/ndiswrapper.ko Returns: Code: rm: cannot remove `/lib/modules/3.2.0-23-generic/kernel/drivers/net/ndiswrapper/ndiswrapper.ko': No such file or directory I know the easiest way to install ndiswrapper is through whatever you installed from, but I formatted it. I'm also not able to plug my PC in directly. TL;DR: I need to install ndiswrapper without an internet connection and without the original flash drive. I've read somewhere about installing a .deb but heard it can lead to problems.
