There are 2 ways to do this, you can download the PCI driver from Prism54 or you can find the WG511DCB.arm file from Netgear and rename it isl3890. Installed its windows driver successfully.(from ‘ndiswrapper -l' I can see it installed and presented). Still $14 is $14 & perhaps I should have waited for someone like you to respond. & was kinda looking forward to playing with ndiswrapper.Would very much appreciate any wisdom you You always find all the essential settings that the vendors think you are too dumb to understand there.
I installed ndiswrapper from yast. This will build and package the modules for you, and you can install them with rpm from the /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386 directory. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. I'm using KNOPPIX 3.3.

If I go out and specifically purchase a card, I want it to be Linux compatible.

The latest stable version (1.1) and the 1.2 release candidate work about the same with this card.
The rest of this should be a doddle (but don’t count your chickens!) Load the ndiswrapper module into the kernel using sudo modprobe ndiswrapper To see that this worked (the green http://www.rickandpatty.com/wg511.html Note: One word of caution. Since I wanted to set up wireless between my Linux laptops, I naturally wanted wireless cards with decent Linux support. This card is based on the Marvell chipset, and at the moment there are no native Linux drivers available.

To be honest, I am a complete newbie to Linux and Ubuntu, but find it fascinating to the point that it is all I want to use. What I didn't realize is that ndiswrapper wasn't working at all, and that putting that firmware into /usr/lib/hotplug/firmware was actually enabling Prism54 to work, and therefore was the only step necessary!!
Hopefully I will get some time to test it against the native driver soon.

You can activate the card by using modprobe ndiswrapper if_name=eth1. Let me know if you need or desire either option. I've been looking for one everywhere but nothing yet...
any ideas what is going on?? srivatsark says: March 16, 2007 at 12:39 pm thanks! If you need to reset your password, click here. It compiled fine.
Got it for $35, probably because they have recently released the WG511T which uses the Atheros super-G chipset. Just enter the email address and license string you get from the Linuxant site: And you are done! If you leave off the if_name parameter entirely, it will default to wlan0, which isn't supported by Fedora's graphical tools. http://consumer5online.com/driver-netgear/driver-netgear-wg511-v2-inf.php To get this card working in Fedora, just download the firmware from here, save it as /lib/firmware/isl3890 (at least on Fedora), plug in the card, and set it up using the

Of course, the whole point of going with 802.11g over 802.11b is to go faster.
I also noticed that the card would sometimes just stop responding to the rest of the network after a while, needing a reset or remove/reinsert to get it listening again. I spent all last night playing with it and had no success. We hope you'll join the conversation by posting to an open topic or starting a new one.

This doesn't change my view of the bad card, though. Step 1 was to plug my Thinkpad into a wired port. Have a look at http://prism54.org/.
