Default here you go....

Install module-assistant and its dependencies:

# apt-get install module-assistant

Now you can start "module-assistant" and select the kernel modules you want, but to save time just follow the guide by typing:

# module-assistant auto-install ndiswrapper


Download and unpack the windows drivers, then type:

ndiswrapper -i /pathto/your/drivers/inf
ndiswrapper -l

You should see something like:

Installed ndis drivers:
bcmwl5 driver present, hardware present

Now to insert the module

modprobe ndiswrapper

If there are no errors you should check dmesg to ensure the driver loaded properly.


Which should say

ndiswrapper version V loaded

If all of this is correct and everything loaded correctly then

ndiswrapper -m
