How to Install and Use a WG111T Wireless Adapter Under Ubuntu Linux

A full how-to on how to get your Netgear WG111T wireless adapter up and running for Ubuntu Linux users.

Make sure the adapter is plugged into your computer and start up your Ubuntu system.

TWO

After you are logged in, go to System → Administration → Synaptic Package Manager.

Here you need to install the following package:

ndisgtk

(If you are using a version of Ubuntu earlier than 9.10 this can be installed with Synaptic Package Manager)

THREE

Obtain your drivers. These can be found on your driver CD that came with your adapter. If you have this CD handy, please skip to step six. If you do not have your drivers, please do the following:

FOUR

Download Wine. To install the latest stable release go to Applications → Ubuntu Software Center. Simply search for the word "wine" and install Wine Microsoft Windows Compatibility Layer. You may install the beta release if you prefer.

While that is installing, visit Netgear's official website and download the latest drivers for the WG111T. This is a .exe file, make sure to save the file, not run it.

FIVE

Now you have your .exe file in your Downloads folder. To find and use this file simply go to Places → Downloads → YOURFILENAME.exe and right click on the file. On the pop up menu select "run with wine"

This will install the Netgear software to a folder at the following location

/home/YOURUSERNAME/.wine/dosdevices/c:/NETGEAR

To easily get here, simply go to Applications → Wine → Browse C:/ Drive

or type the location in the browser window, don't forget to replace YOURUSERNAME with the username on the computer you are working with.

SIX

You are now ready to install your drivers. Go to System → Administration → Windows Wireless Drivers and click to add a new driver. Browse to the location where your drivers are located, if you followed steps four and five this will be in the wine C drive. Select the file netwg111t.inf and click to complete your installation. When you select this file, make sure to use the file inside the ndis5 folder, not the file in the main folder. The files are called the exact same thing, but one is specially designed for ndiswrapper.

SEVEN

To make sure that your device will work on boot you need to add it to a special list. To do this go to Applications → Accessories → Terminal and type in the following command.

CODE:

sudo gedit /etc/modules

This will open a window that shows a very short text document. Add the following line to the document, above the line "lp" and save and close the document.

CODE:

ndiswrapper

EIGHT

Plug the USB adapter into your computer and connect to your wireless network by selecting the Wireless icon in the Notification area on the top panel. This can be found on the right hand side, or if you have removed it by right clicking on a panel and adding it again.
