Hello guys

I recently installed a Netgear WG311v2 into my "Ubuntu" System. Also im already trying to get it to work for a few weeks now :(. But its still not working.

So my question is: how can install the Netgear WG311v2 driver for my linux machine. I never did this before so a little tutorial with commands would be nice.

Thanks :D

Sorry for my bad english

Can you run the ifconfig and iwconfig commands from the command line and copy and paste what you get back into here. Put it inside the code tag to make it easier to read.

It is confirmed that wlan0 is your adapter.

What have you tried to do to get it to work. Have you tried using the command line or the GUI?
