Wireless Netgear HA311 PCI card, will it work?


Anyone gotten this card working in linux??? I made the mistake of buying a WirelessAP using 802.11a and pci 802.11a cards are very hard to find.

The netgear is the only "name" brand pci card i can find... but i dont want to put down 75 bucks if it will not work?

so anyone have any expiernce with this card.. or does any know of any other pci 802.11a cards that will work under linux?

thanks
trey

Its an Atheros card, it'll work, its a little bit of headache to get the modules to compile:

madwifi.sourceforge.net

There's also the 802.11a prism cards, they're driver can be found at:

www.prism54.org

And is in the 2.6 kernel.

As to what cards go with what chipset:

Not just should, DO work under Linux, I was just being a little cagey because its not like a cisco 340, pop it in and rock out of the box, there's some hand compiling, for the atheros driver you may need to download sharutils, not under slackware its there... as long as you installed most of d, and of course you'll have to have your running kernel's source and gcc, etc... the usual suspects.

A juggle, but they work brilliantly with iwconfig and its friends in Jean's wireless tools package.

Cheers,
