Please Please Please Help!!!!!!!!!


Hello guys, I have become so mad with trying to get my Netgear WG311T to work on SuSE Linux 10.2. I really need it to work. PLEASE help me. Just tell me everything I need to do now, and if I need something, where do I get it. I have been trying to do it for like 7 hours straight. Still, no luck. I have Ndiswrapper 1.47 installed already. But don't what the heck I am supposed to do. Or where to get the driver or anything! I am completely new to Linux too. PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!

I believe that card will use madwifi if Atheros based chipset.
Post only the info related to the card from this command. /sbin/lspci -v

If using ndiswrapper what have you completely done so far. No idea where you are at.

Also in future use better descriptive subject lines.

Download the latest source from http://madwifi.org/
Extract and follow the install docs from it.
Also search here for Suse and madwifi. Many post that explain alot.
Not a Suse user so not sure exactly where certain configs may need to go.

Goto the download link and select either the gz or bz2 madwifi-0.9.3.1.tar.
Extract then contents of the archive and read the install or readme docs.
Also the docs are on the site as well.
