Oookay...

Have you tried anything yet? Or is it still in the box and you are wondering where to start?

I don't mean to sound rude or curt, but where do we start?

Is it currently in the machine and you have a driver error? Is it not recieving signal? Is it not picking up DHCP?

I've never heard of a Netgear WG11T - a WG311T or WG511, yes. If you check out the excellent HCL on this website simply by clicking HCL at the top of your screen and search for your card, you will probably find instructions on configuring it. Most are fairly straightforward - you install a module such as ndiswrapper, install the Windows driver (as silly as it may sound) and then configure you card. Some are a bit trickier and require firmware upgrades, but consult the HCL to start off with.
