None of these solutions are working out at all. Here is the output for those last two commands:

It's like I'm missing a key step somewhere but I have no idea where.

OK, got this needed info..........

Code:
01:09.0 Ethernet controller: Marvell Technology Group Ltd. 88w8335 [Libertas] 802.11b/g Wireless (rev 03)
        Subsystem: Netgear WG311v3 802.11g Wireless PCI Adapter
And checking the ndiswrapper site it seems that one might want the original driver from Netgear;
http://kbserver.netgear.com/products/WG311v3.asp

Quote:
Card: Netgear WG311 v3 (Marvell 88w8335 Libertas)

* Chipset: Marvell 88w8335 Libertas 54Mbps Wireless Interface
* pciid: 11ab:1faa
* Driver: copied from http://kbserver.Netgear.com/products/WG311v3.asp initial Release 6.20 MB May 16,
* Driver: Copied WG311v3.INF and WG311v3XP.sys from Netgear CD to local ad hoc directory and ran ndiswrapper 1.2 there. Please see hint at http://linuxcompatible.org/Netgear_W...ng_t33271.html
*
Driver: WG311v3.inf (XP) from Netgear-HP or CD (date: 2005-03-10) with ndiswrapper-1.33 on gentoo-2.6.18-r6. WPA/PSK with wpa_supplicant-0.5.4 runs without problems!
In reviewing this thread it seems that at one time (or currently) the ndiswrapper module was/is loaded, check; cat /proc/modules ndis

If no then load the module as root; modprobe -v ndiswrapper

Verify the /etc/modprobe.conf file has the line entry: alias wlan0 ndiswrapper
Verify the /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-wlan0 file does exist and the contents of the file
Verify that the interface is active
(with some laptops one has to turn it on via a physical switch, with others this has to be done in Windows then warm booted into Linux)

Check with the system manufacturer if a BIOS update is available, if yes then download/install it. Check the BIOS also in some cases the wireless device is not enabled at boot time.

As a suggestion as root delete the /var/log/messages file and reboot the system then check this file and if need be post the revelant portion.

You have (or should have) everything needed to make this card work, review the thread, take notes etc.

Google Linux( http://www.google.com/linux/ ) also has a number of helpful links, search term: WG311v3
