Linux 6? What's that? Do you mean Red Hat 6? Centos 6? Please tell us the Distro you're using. If it's a server type distribution I'd reckon the WiFi software may not be included as servers tend to be hard wired into data centre infrastructures. WiFi is less secure and not as fast as a cabled connection.

If you're running Red Hat you should be able to use your support contract to ask them how to solve your problem.

Are you sure this is correct? I can't find a Netgear router with this model No.

My appologies, for some reason I thought the WG311v3 was a router rather than a WiFi network card. All I have been able to find out is that the chip set is apparently Marvell chipset 88w8335 and you'll probably have to use ndiswrapper to get it to work. Ndiswrapper is a sort of layer which allows you to use Windows drivers as Linux ones may not exist. Unfortunately, as I'm not very knowledgeable about its use, someone else may have to help you.

I did find this explanation with relation to Fedora (which is based on Red Hat)though...

Hope it helps. Good luck!

this IS RHEL6
you MUST have a paid for support contract

ask red hat
you Bought the REQUIRED support license ?
you did right ?


red hat is not free
you MUST pay for it


if not then DO NOT USE IT
instead install one of the FREE rebuilds
CentOS 6
ScientificLinux6

basically if you do NOT pay for RHEL you DO NOT INSTALL anything on it .
