since my PCMCIA card doesn't work anymore on my Ubuntu (I asked another question about that), I bought a USB wifi adapter, the Netgear WN111.

I thought it would work with Ubuntu, but nothing happens when I plug it in.

What steps should I take to configure it ?

Sounds like the only way people have had some success is through the ndiswrapper.

Owwww :( that's too bad. I thought Ubuntu would have no problems with a usb adapter. –  Manu Aug 4 '09 at 21:31
    
I would never assume something works in linux without explicit manufactor support or some google research before a purchase. –  Troggy Aug 4 '09 at 21:38
    
Yeah, I know... I went to the store right before closing, and didn't really have time to do research. That'll teach me. –  Manu Aug 4 '09 at 21:47
