    Default my wireless card Netgear WG311 is recognized as a ACX 111 54Mbps

    hello

    i have installed BT4 beta and i have a Netgear WG311 wireless card but when i made "/etc/init.d/networking start" so my eth0 started right and not my wireless card

    so i made a "lspci" and here is the result

    pibe@bt:~$
    and "iwconfig"

    pibe@bt:~$ iwconfig
    lo no wireless extensions.

    eth0 no wireless extensions.

    pibe@bt:~$
    i noticed that bt4 was recognizing my netgear WG311 as a ACX 111

    so, ¿is my wireless card installed but no initialed?¿can i fix this problem? ¿can i make my netgear card to work? or ¿should i buy a new wireless card?

    thank you

    Default

    hello, i downloaded this driver sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=75380&package_id=75880 the first one and i used README file to install it

    pastebin.com/f5bf56214

    *i made a directory in /usr/src/linux-source-2.6.28.1/drivers/net/wireless called acx

    *then i added a line to /usr/src/linux-source-2.6.28.1/drivers/net/wireless/Makefile:
    obj-m += acx/
    * after i used
    make -C /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build M=`pwd`
    and it shows me this

    root@bt:/usr/src/linux-source-2.6.28.1/drivers/net/wireless# make -C /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build M=`pwd`

    Default

    The first link is for users who are not using mac80211 stack, namely kernel < 2.6.22. As of kernel > 2.6.22 there is mac80211 stack. BT2/BT3 would require the first file.. whereas BT4b requires the second file.

    Also make sure to read this: http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drivers/acx1xx
