Netgear WN311B wireless PCI adapter and wireless connection
 
Hello,
I recently finished building my computer, and Verizon upgraded my TV and internet for more channels and faster speed, so I wanted them to run an Ethernet line for my computer, but the guy told me to just buy a wireless card. I figured I would end up doing that anyway, so I did, and it works great on the Windows side of my hard drive, but not so much on Linux. I am running Linux Mint 10 Julia, and I had the card working fine at one point, but after about an hour, I got kicked off of the connection, and it would not let me back on. So, I reset the router downstairs, and the next day I was able to get on again for about 3 hours, but again, I was kicked off. I've fiddled around and tried to find what is wrong, but now even when I go into the network connections, it does not search for a network, nor will it connect to my network after i input all the information. It works flawlessly on the Windows side, but the only reason I have Windows is to do some school work on Inventor. I have no desire to run Windows primarily, and I love Linux, but I need to get this wireless working. Thank you.

Hello,

What distribution of linux are you using? That would help out a lot... Also, can you give me the output of lspci and lsmod, along with the output of ifconfig -a and iwconfig? Thanks,

Josh
