I am having this same problem. I want to get wireless working on my 1001p asus netbook, running ubuntu 10. I am having some snags with a couple of the downloads, as suggested from the myriad forum threads I've scoured to find this information.
Wondered if someone could help with these.
I could not find the driver with this procedural step:
3) Go to http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx and get the WinXP wireless LAN drivers for the 1001P (NE785H_GE112H). Unzip that file to a folder.
returned could not find package ndiswrapper
sudo apt-get install ndiswrapper-common ndiswrapper-utils-1.9 ndisgtk
Basically most the download procedures I haven't been able to get to work. Highly frustrating. Appreciate help with that. Thansk.
I downloaded ndiswrapper via Uubuntu Software Center in Admin system prefs, but am having trouble downloading hte asus driver. Why couldn't someone just post the direct URL to the .zip? cheers.
