Hello everyone, I was trying to install ndiswrapper and the drivers needed to get my laptop working with wireless properly. I never got around to finish installing the drivers although I did install ndiswrapper. I lost my wifi completely and my system doesn't even pick up my card now.

It was originally hardwired with the default software that comes with ubuntu. It would just lag a lot when I got online so i decided to install ndiswrapper. I never finished to install ndiswrapper. It's suppose to be working with the hardwired connection, but the computer doesn't even detect my wifi anymore. Don't know what's going on.

I don't know many bash commands. Need a starting point. Anything would help. Thanks guys!

+ I have an Atheros Communications Wirelesscard AR2413 802.11bg


When I try a iwlist scan bash command my computer displays:

lo Interface doesn't support scanning

eth0 Interface doesn't support scanning


From what I can see...the system isn't using my wireless card to scan for any available networks. Does anyone know what I should try? I don't understand how my wireless can just stop working all of the sudden. Thanks!

I know this sounds silly but I've seen it a bunch. Turn the wireless on. If it's off when you boot the module will not load.
