The Realtek 8191/8192SE under Ubuntu

I have a Realtek 8191/8192SE wifi card embedded in my Medion Akoya S5612. As usual for Realtek, this card has only support for Windows. I had to use ndiswrapper to get the card working under Ubuntu 9.10. Steps:
  • download the Realtek 8192SE driver
  • from Synaptic, install the ndisgtk package (dependencies are automatically selected)
  • now, in System / Administration / Window Wireless Drivers you can install the windows driver. Select the Win2K driver.
That's all. :-)
