Problem derecting WG311v3 Netgear interface card


I bought a Netgear WG311v3 card but the PC is not able to detect the wireless interface card. I installed the ndiswrapper and then the wg311v3 driver. the output of the command ndiswrapper -l is
wg311v3: driver installed
device(11AB:1FAA) present

but the PC with Slackware still not able to detect the wireless interface card. Can any one pls guide what else i should do?

What exactly do you mean? Can you post the output of "iwconfig" and "ifconfig -a" please?

Hello,

You need to load the ndiswrapper module. Run as root:

Code:
/sbin/modprobe ndiswrapper

See this for using ndiswrapper on Slackware:
http://alien.slackbook.org/dokuwiki/...:ndiswrapper&s[]=ndiswrapper
Here is some stuff specific for your card and ndiswrapper. It is from Ubuntu; but much of it is adaptable for Slackware:
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wi...tgear_WG311_v3
Try getting your wireless going without encryption first. Then once you get it working, if you need wpa encryption see this:
