Well as you know I moaned about no dkms integration but I found a very useful thread and this is what to do:

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install ndiswrapper-source
cd /usr/src
sudo m-a prepare
sudo m-a a-i ndiswrapper
modprobe ndiswrapper

I then restarted the machine.

Next I went to Menu | System Tools | Administration | Windows Wireless Drivers - you will be asked for your login password to elevate to root.

I then installed this 64-bit driver:

Then you need to edit the connection - if you had to use a different dongle in the meantime, you will need to use the drop-down at the end of the MAC address to get the current WNDA 3100 mac address which will have (wlan1) in brackets after it - then 'Save' :D

I then restarted once more and I am now connected as I write this! :D
