As you can see the wired network is ok (i didn't have it connected when I copied this, but it works fine none the less), but the wireless network isn't working at all. The netgear card doesn't even light up and I can't figure out how to get the drivers working (they're XP drivers, so I don't think I'll have much luck). I was told to use something called ndiswrapper-utils, but when I put in the command to get it, it says that it's not available and suggests ndiswrapper-common. However, when I follow the rest of the instructions given on this page: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=76804
and I get to the line "sudo ndiswrapper -i 2802W.inf" it tells me ndiswrapper isn't installed.
