Question regarding configuring wireless network card type Netgear WG511, V.3

Posted 12-07-2006 at 03:43 PM by Dariusz Szydlowski

Hello everyone familiar to linux.
Since changing the OS on my laptop, the wireless network card (Netgear WG511, V3) is not powered up at all (therefore, obviously is not working). None of the LED lights is on(there are two lights: one for power on, the other one for activity.)Because this card was working in Windows XP platform, I am sure it is not damaged. My linux OS is the "Freespire bootable CD". I have read a article in other blogs about how to configure this card. I am not sure if this method would work on this version of linux (the blog was written by kdog, on 2006-09-01). My wired network is working, but, since linux is kind of new OS for me, maybe someone familiar with Linux would help me to get the set of procedures how to enable and configure this WG511, V.3 wireless card from Netgear.
I really appreciate all responses,

    I do not know how to do it either (yet). My philosophy is "if the card do not work, find a distribution that will make it work." Eg. Ubuntu 6.06 detect my card and works fine. So does Mepis 6.0. Both distributions comes in the form of live cd with option to install.
