This is working. This card worked on my Debian Etch Laptop. I can't remember how I did it exactly, but you need to fiddle around with the Drivers on the CD and different versions of ndiswrapper.

If you want, query me on IRC. IRCNet, OFTC, Freenode: kaner

Best wishes,
Christian

Cool

Thats right, I guess it gets pretty political in the end. Does the chipset manufacturer provide the drivers or do the card manufacturers that use the chipset provide the drivers?

At the end of the day, until more and more people move to linux some of the manufacturers will just not provide support. We should be glad though that companys like Dell have just started to embrace linux so there will be more support in the end.

Unfortunatly you could spend hours and hours trying to get the card to work (and not always 100%), or you could go to work and save enough in a hour or two to buy a supported card (my way of thinking)

Im so happy with my WG511T..... WPA works and no drivers needed for feisty.

Because the WG511T uses a supported chipset by the native drivers, yes its recognized automatically. No problems at all......

No messing with drivers

Thanks sezzski. If anyone else has the problem I actually managed to get my WG511 to work using instructions here http://www.debianadmin.com/enable-wp...ntu-linux.html which didn't involve any great linux knowlege which was definitely good for me.

ok... so I am back with the same Netware wg511 v2 (made in china) problem.
after checking out the information under lspci -vv command i realized the memory is not anable in my card.
could this be the problme why ubuntu does not recognizes the card?
example;

"03:00.0 Ethernet controller: Marvell Technology Group Ltd. 88w8335 [Libertas] 802.11b/g Wireless (rev 03)
Subsystem: Netgear WG511 v2 54MBit/ Wireless PC-Card
Control: I/O- Mem- BusMaster- SpecCycle- MemWINV- VGASnoop- ParErr- Stepping- SERR- FastB2B-
Status: Cap+ 66MHz+ UDF- FastB2B+ ParErr- DEVSEL=medium >TAbort- <TAbort- <MAbort- >SERR- <PERR-
Interrupt: pin A routed to IRQ 9
Region 0: Memory at 34000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [disabled] [size=64K]
Region 1: Memory at 34010000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [disabled] [size=64K]
Capabilities: <access denied>"

Another question, why is the wireless option not enabled?


someone please advice

thanks

Omarcarr
