Installation hangs near end-Mint 10 XFCE

Re: WiFi NetgearWPN111 no work- Mint 8 LXDE

I rooted around in my junk box & found a TrendNet TEW-229 wireless USB stick, and installed the XP driver with ndiswrapper, and it works fine on Mint 8 LXDE. :mrgreen: While I could just be content to surf the web with this one, I'd still like to figure out how to get the Netgear stick working, ...

WiFi NetgearWPN111 no work- Mint 8 LXDE [SOLVED]

I have a Toshiba Satellite with 256M ram, and it can get bogged down in Mint 7 Gnome, so I installed Mint 8 LXDE. Great!! 8) ...except no wifi. :( I have a Netgear WPN111 USB dongle, installed with ndiswrapper, which works fine in Mint 7 (which is where I am now), where the iwconfig tells me: lo no ...
