Re: Driver for NETGEAR PCI wireless adapter wg311

The answer to this issue is dependent on the linux distribution and version you are running.

There are several different versions of this card requiring different answers.

There are several different means in linux to address the issue. From earlier reading the NDISWrapper approach allows the used of a windows driver. For some versions of the card the madwfi project now on sourceforge, I believe may have options to support this card. -- see links below

Suggestions for each card version in this link

the following show some discussions by others on this card

Please confirm the Distribution and version of linux involved as well as the version of the wg311 adapter (1, 2, or 3) and I may be able to get more specific.

Wg311 driver ubuntu

Click on "More Apps" and select "Accessories." Click on the "Terminal" link to open the Terminal console.

Navigate to "System" and select "Administration."

Select the "Synaptic Package Manager" and enter "ndiswrapper" as a search term.

Select the files "ndisgtk," "ndiswrapper-utils-1.9" and "ndiswrapper-common" at the results page. Click "Apply" to install "ndiswrapper."

Enter "ndiswrapper --h" into the console to verify that the software is installed. If the installation is successful, you should see a list of command-line options in the console.

Use the "cd" command to navigate to the location of the WG311's drivers (i.e., "cd "WG311v3 V1.0/Driver/[current Windows version]").

Enter "sudo ndiswrapper --i WG311v3.INF" to install the drivers onto Ubuntu.

Verify that the driver was installed by entering "ndiswrapper --l" into the console.

Enter "sudo modprobe ndiswrapper" into the console to install the kernel module.

If the console does not respond to the command, restart the system and enter it again.

Enter "iwconfig" to verify the command's execution.

The command should produce a "wlan0" network interface with a number of details listed. Enter "sudo ndiswrapper --m" to ensure that "ndiswrapper" loads upon startup

hope this helps

Drivers issue

This model doesen't have Windows 7 support yet. Try with this driver version, it might work with Windows 7 as well. Otherwise you'll have to wait or change the operating system.

I'm sorry to tell you, but Netgear does not have a Macintosh driver for WG11 adapter. It can only work with Windows OS.
