Lightbulb Wireless connection fails with NETGEAR adapter


Hello all of you!! Please help me, I have installed Mandriva free 2007 in my DELL Optiplex 170 L, CPU 2.8 Ghz, RAM 512 Mo. To connect to internet, I am using a wireless adapter NETGEAR
WG111v2. I was working great on Windows Vista, but on Mandriva, I have installed the driver and I see all the network around, and when I click on one of them and try to connect, I always fail to connect.

What really is my problem? There is no message telling me that I can't connect or my connection fails.

Thank you in advance

More Info Needed

Is your wireless router secured (encrypted)?

Have you configured you checked your settings under wireless device configuration? I have used Fedora 5 and 6 and Red Hat, so I am not familiar with how you get at these things in Mandriva?

Hello cmnorton!! Yes my network is secured but I have put the password and the icon became green but when I open mozilla I can't connect to the internet. I have installed the windows driver through ndiswrapper and I think it is well installed because I can see all my school's networks around. I have configured some of them but still can't connect. Is there something special to be configured again?? One more thing, when I was on Vista, I saw all the networks around but on mandriva i see just three of them.

If someone else could help me, please answer me.

Additional info

The biggest problem I had with setting up a wireless card was picking the wireless network type and entering the encryption key. I did not have to install an NDIS driver.

I am not sure what you mean by "becoming green".
