Can not install driver for Netgear Wireless WG311 v3

First off I looked in the forums and found some messages but being a two month old newbie I could not understand the answers. Here is as much information that I can give.
Using Ubuntu 10.04
Kernel 2.6.32-21-generic
I am going to use the following symbol to indicate when I click the mouse. -> I think that someone had told me that this is how you indicate it.
The antenna symbol has a red !on it.
When I click on the antenna wave symbol at the top right of the screen the following things happen.
When I click it a menu opens then I click on VPN Connection, that is the only one that I can click on all the others are a different color and can't be clicked.-> Configure VPN -> Network connection window ->
Then a box opens then I -> wireless and the following comes up
Name Last Used
Auto Action Tec 5 days

I have never used it so I don't understand how it could indicate that I used it.
When answering this please answer in a forum that is really simple for I am a really really really newbie.
Sorry that I went on and on but was trying to give as much info as possible.
Thank you in advance for you help and time.

According to there's no Linux driver for your Wi-Fi card (yet).
