how to install netgear WG111 usb 2.0 wireless adapter in fedora 8..?


I have Fedora 8 installed on my Desktop recently.I am having a Netgear wireless-G WG111 USB 2.0 adapter as my internet connection.
Please let me know how to set up this driver and make it work.Can you please forward the links of setting up the wireless connection on fedora 8.

I am relatively new to linux, having just switched over from windows, and up until now everything was working great.
However, a computer without internet is just about useless to me.

Does anyone know how I could get this to work?

well net gear uses a html gateway so as the direction say turn off your computer turn off the router turn off your dsl modem or wifi modem. the start the dsl modem or wifi modem. then after that is up and flashing green start your netgear router when it is up start your computer. then start your favorite browser then type in the gate way numbers or i think last one I did was http://netgear.net or www.netgear.net. this will open the html gateway page that the router is sending there you will follow the instruction on how to put in your IP paswords then it will ask you to use a type of incryption use it so your neighbor dose not use your connection. good luck always password protect .
