DISCUSSION: Netgear WG511 v3 Made in China with WPA on Ubuntu 6.06 LTS (Dapper)

This thread is to discuss the article titled:
Netgear WG511 v3 Made in China with WPA on Ubuntu 6.06 LTS (Dapper)

After about two weeks of playing around with this issue, I finally got the WG511 v3 Made in China up and running, including WPA encryption. My System: IBM Thinkpad 600X Pentium III 500 MHz Ubuntu 6.06 LTS Dapper (Gnome) Kernel: 2.6.15-26-386 i686 --- Install the Laptop with the WG511 plugged into the PCMCIA slot. A second wired network card is needed to connect to the internet an dget the updates and packages. Have this card plugged into the Laptop during installation. After the installation, let the automatic updates run and install. This way the kernel will be updated as well.

Help with Ubuntu and Netgear WG511

I sure could use a hand with this. I'm brand new to Linux - specifically Ubuntu. I installed the OS on my Dell Inspiron 8000 and I've got everything working fine with one exception. I can't get my Netgear WG511 v3 (made in China) card to work. I've followed the instructions in the article above, and am able to successfully install the driver, but when I do a
ndiswrapper -l
, the driver is present, but the hardware is not. No green lights on the card - nothing.
Please help me solve this issue. If you need further information about my system, please ask, but you'll have to bear with me because I am a total Newbie.
