I just installed Linux Mint Nadia 64 bit and I'm having problems getting the wireless to work.
My wireless hardware from lspci
05:00.0 Ethernet controller: Marvell Technology Group Ltd. 88W8362e [TopDog] 802.11a/b/g/n Wireless (rev 03)
I've tried going to control center-system-windows wireless drivers and clicked install new driver and selected the inf for the windows xp 64 driver i found online Marvell Topdog 802.11n/g/b wlan driver 126.96.36.199 (I also previously did the same with the netgear driver I've read of others using before wg311v3.inf directly from the netgear ftp--got the same error and removed the driver in the wireless network driver gui). I get the following error during the driver install: "FATAL: Module ndiswrapper not found." It then shows the driver in the wireless network drivers gui netmw245 with this driver but underneath it says "Hardware present: No."
I have also done the following in the terminal:
$ sudo apt-get update
$ apt-cache search ndiswrapper-utils
$ sudo apt-get install ndiswrapper-common ndiswrapper-utils-1.9
$ cd /tmp/
$ wget ftp://downloads.netgear.com/files/wg311v3_1_0.zip
$ unzip wg311v3_1_0.zip
$ cd "/tmp/WG311v3 V1.0/Driver/Windows XP/"
$ sudo ndiswrapper -i WG311v3.INF
$ sudo modprobe ndiswrapper
When I get to installing hte ndiswrapper I get the same error as in the gui.
