Hi all
 
I got these two cards:
1) Netgear WG311v3 - using a Marvell Chipset, supposedly supported by ndiswrapper
2) Gigabyte GN-WP01GS - using the RaLink RT/61 / RT2x00 driver
 
My distro of choice (due to some specific needs) is Suse, and I have the 64bit SUSE 9.3 DVD, as well as the 64SUSE 10.1 CD's. I also have FC 4, Ubuntu 5.10 (64bit), Mandriva 2005, CentOS 4.1.
 
Has anyone been able to setup either of these cards on any of these Distro's? And if so, how? Please help, as I'm pulling my hair out. ndiswrapper is not as easy to make work as it seems. Well, I couldn't get either of these to work on Knoppix 3.7 (don't want to install this though), Ubuntu 5.10 or SUSE 9.3 & 10.1

Let's start with the Netgear card.
 
What have you tried already? Telling us this would help.
 
1. Are you using the ndiswrapper version that came with SuSE?
 
2. What version of SuSE are you currently using?
 
3. Did you follow the directions on the ndiswrapper wiki website?
 
4. Did you use the recommended Windows XP drivers?
 
5. Did you set up the essid and password for your router?
 
Telling us what you already tried would help a great deal.
