Networking :: dsl and wlan
Got a lot of questions. Hope you do not mind. I am trying to get a netgear card working. It is on the list of cards that are verified but I do not know what I am doing. I am using the drivers listed here.http://www.linuxcompatible.org/Searching_Drivers_for_Netgear_WG311v3_t33272.html "post 166571"
To use ndiswrapper do I need a working copy of windows loaded on the same comp. ? And how do I get it to show up where the /mnt/windows/netcard.info shows up? What else do I need to know.
You don't need windows but only the drivers. I am not familar with Netgear but all I did was copy the .inf and .sys files to the /home/dsl directory. In the control panel ndiswrapper button enter the full path and .inf file name. If it is open wifi you can leave everything else blank. This makes a myndis.sh file in /opt that you might have to add to bootlocal.sh and filetool.lst to stay put. Search the forum and wiki for "wifi" to find other good stuff.
Got it working. What I did is built the windows dir then copied my files into it and renamed wg311v3.inf to netcard.inf. It worked like a charm.
