help with network card

First off Hi to all,I am probably in way over my head on this whole linux os but I have tried many of the live distro's slax,slynux,damn small linux,elive all are good some are better.I like slynux,slax and dsl.All seem to connect fine to net with ethernet but I am completly lost on how to configure and install the driver for my netgear 311t adapter.In dsl I believe the ndiswrapper is already there?I would appreciate in any live distro.remember I am not at all familiar with lnux(newbie)Thanks for any help.

I believe if you compile support or include the "natsemi" module in your kernel, you'll be up and running. I used a netgear FA-311 adapter in a gentoo box a while ago.

Thumbs up

Thanks for the info.I believe the ndsiwrapper for the atheros chip is on the disc now that I have it installed I just need to figure out how to unpack it and install it.
