I am using Fedora 3 with a freshly built kernel version 2.6.13

I am using my wg311 v3 wireless card to post this message

This card works with ndiswrapper version 1.5 and 1.7. These are the versions that I have tested. I used the WG311v3.INF file that came with my Netgear card on the cdrom. However, you need to use the WG311v3XP.sys and put only this sys in the directory with inf file before running the following command.

ndiswrapper -i WG311v3.INF

ndiswrapper -l

will return the message

wg311v3 driver present, hardware present

after that you need to know how to use iwconfig and the other wireless tools.

Have fun with your new netgear wireless card.
