it's a Netgear WG311 v3 (Marvell 88w8335), i'm pretty sure of that now, but still can't get it working, and i've got people bitching about the 50' cable laying on the floor i've been googling and came up with NDISwrapper, but can't get that to work ether.

I believe that one requires ndiswrapper. Now is the windows INF driver you have, is it 64bit or 32bit. Since you installed 64bit OS and you installed 64bit ndiswrapper then you need to make sure the inf driver is 64bit.
