I'm looking for a Linux compatible driver for my Netgear WN311T wireless adapter. Any of you Linux guys know a website where I could find it? If there is a program that can adapt Windows drivers for use in Linux, that would be useful also. Thanks!

Oh, if it helps, I'm running Ubuntu 7.10

Ubuntu 7.10 is a bit dated(and its support is about to end)... Before you put a lot of work into this, you may want to do a fresh install of the latest version(8.10), and start from there...


Can you not extract it from the CD? If you don't have the CD, I'm guessing is the INF file you need so you can use it w/ ndiswrapper...

Try doing a search for the .exe... I find out it here.. http://drivers.softpedia.com/get/NETWORK-CARD/NETGEAR/Netgear-WN311T-Driver-41.shtml

Run the .exe using wine... Then navigate to to your wine directory and look for it... the .inf file will be in one of the sub folders there.

Cool, I'll download a copy of 8.10 and go from there. I figured I might run into you on this thread!:wavey:

ubuntuforums.org is a great place to find answers to questions.

If after installing 8.10 and it doesn't work automatically you can use ndiswrapper and the windows driver to get it working.

If I can't find what I'm looking for from the source of the OS, my next stop is always RPMpbone.net (http://rpm.pbone.net/).

I maybe wrong since I haven't done much with Linux lately. Netgear WG311T has an Atheros chipset and can use the MadWifi driver http://sourceforge.net/projects/madwifi/

NDISwrapper is your can't find a Linux driver solution as stated above.

Intrepid Ibex "should" have that driver or at least a downloadable wrapper.

I know when I was tinkering with a very scaled down Puppy Linux, it had problems with my wifi card.

BUT when Ubuntu 8.10 Ibex was installed, I was on the Net in minutes!
