Full Version: Netgearma311 Wireless And Linux
Linuxhelp > Support > Technical Support
I recently bought a Netgear MA311 wireless PCI Card.

This card is not officially supported by Netgear.
I then downloaded the Wireless Tools and Extensions and the pcmcia-cs packages and installed them.

The card still does not work. What I mean is that it is not recognized at boot time and I cannot for a ethx device that matches it.

I understand the replacing the card with one that is supported on Linux is the quickest solution but I would really like to take a good shot at fixing my present problem before I do that.

I understand that I am not very specific, so I hope you will guide me by asking for clarification. I am linux newbie, so I don't know what pertinent debug information to give.

All your help is appreciated....

Good day,

I have made some progress sifting through debug information on my machine.

In new developments,
I checked /var/log/messages/ and it said:
Linux PCMCIA Card Services 3.2.1
Kernel Build 2.4.19 #1 SMP Thu OCt 17
options [pci] [cardbus] [apm]
Intel ISA/PCI/Cardbus PCIC p;robe:
no bridges found.

I am not sure what this error means but it seems to be at the heart of my
problem. Does anyone have any ideas?

Advice is much appreciated...
