I have just installed a Netgear WG311T Wireless PCI card into my desktop PC, and have got it to work fine in windows... The problem comes when I come to configure it for Linux, I first tried to configure it in SuSE 9.1 Pro running the default 2.6.4-52 kernel. When YaST didn't work, I downloaded the current CVS version of the MadWifi drivers. I built and installed the programs without any trouble at all. When I ran 'iwconfig' the ath0 device that I required did not come up, I then ran 'modprobe ath_pci', I recieved messages that the installed modules were invalid and would not work, I've tried to configure the drivers in SuSE 9.2, Fedora 3 and 4, Ubuntu and Mandriva. All of them returning the same messages. Why the hell wont it work!? Someone please help, ive followed all of the MadWiki directions, and they don't work!!! And I'm getting really p*ss*d off having to reboot to this seive of a security hole to access the internet to look for another set of instructions that wont work and reboot back to my linux distro.
First, what is the *exact* error message returned by modprobe ath_pci? Second, after you built and installed the module, did you run depmod? Third, are you sure you have the right kernel sources installed when you built the module?
I read this thread and I am having similar problems. Then I saw a new thread today about you getting this resolved and not being able to find the router. Could you please share how you got around this initial problem? Thanks,
