Installing driver for Netgear WG311T 108 Mbps Wireless PCI Adapter

I'm not a LINUX guru but I got mine to work doing the following:

Installing driver for Netgear 108 Mbps Wireless PCI Adapter
Model WG311T

Download driver. I got mine here: http://madwifi.otaku42.de/

1. Do the following commands: gunzip madwifi-cvs-current.tar.gz
and tar cvf madwifi-cvs-current.tar
2. Run the "make" in the directory madwifi
3. Then do a "make install".
4. vi the /etc/modprobe.conf file. Add a line alias ath0 ath_pci
5. vi /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-ath0
Add this:
STARTMODE=hotplug
DEVICE=ath0
BOOTPROTO=dhcp
WIRELESS=yes
MODE=Managed
ESSID=<Your network name goes here>
IPV6INIT=no
onBOOT=yes
USERCTL=no
PEERDNS=no
KEY= <Your security key goes here if you have one>

6. ifconfig ath0 up
7. ifup ath0
8. vi /etc/resolv.conf
Add this:
nameserver 192.168.1.1

That should be it. You may to reboot and see if ath0 is recognize during the boot sequence.

I have a problem with this. if I would compile madwifi, make print me

uudecode: command not found (i think???)

because i think that uudecode is into the kernel??? my system is complete new installed! hmm... I try to show the exact expenditure, if it is possible my InterNet functioned due to this problem with the driver unfortunately only under windows.

Unhappy Re: Installing driver for Netgear WG311T 108 Mbps Wireless PCI Adapter

Hello Gineraso
I want to run wireless network through the netgear wireless wg311t card. I tried to download the drivers from the link that u have provided but i could not. It would be nice if you can mail me the drivers yourself. My email id is the whiteeye@gmail.com.

If there is any alternate method of running this card that u may know, please do post it here
Thank you in advance
