I'm having an issue with my wireless connection under Ubuntu 6.10 with a Netgear wg311v2 PCI card. This used to work flawlessly under 5.10, of course I had third party drivers that were licensed by Texas Instruments that I can't seem to track down any more.
I installed ndiswrapper, loaded the windows drivers, configured everything for my network; but I can't seem to make Ubuntu use the card to connect to my network. Using various wireless utilities (Wireless Assistant 0.5.5, SWScanner, etc) I can use the card to detect all kinds of wireless networks around me, including my own, but I can't connect.
The only reason I can get online now with this machine is by using my Powerbook to share its wireless connection through its ethernet port.
Should I not use the ndiswrapper that is listed in Synaptic?
