    Angry Pls help: Netgear WN511TA_pcmcia

    Hi,
    Toshiba Satellite pro 4600 laptop with Dual boot XP Pro-Karmic Ubuntu. Wireless N is fine under Windows with Netgear WN-511TA PCMCIA card. I recently used the graphical method to install ndiswrapper and the Windows driver into Karmic Ubuntu. The window shows the hardware is present (NMW14X: yes), implying that the INF file is installed. I even blacklisted the Orinoco driver of the existing Orinoco wireless B card in my laptop. However when I click on the button to configure network the screen says it cannot find a network to configure. When I try to connect wirelessly via Network Manager, I cannot see WPA2 Personal passphrase, only WEP and other authentications.

    Could you help me set up wireless connection? Thank you.

    Oh by the way, the card lits up but I still cannot connect wirelessly.
    Up until last year, I used madwifi driver to connect a DLink WNA-2330 PCMCIA card adn everything was fine. I just used Synaptic Manager to remove "madwifi tools" which is the only term I can find under "Search".

    Hi everyone! Here's what the terminal shows after I enter iwconfig:

    ~$ iwconfig
    lo no wireless extensions.

    eth0 no wireless extensions.

    wlan0 IEEE 802.11g ESSIDff/any
    Mode:Managed Frequency:2.437 GHz Access Point: Not-Associated
    Bit Rate:1 Mb/s Sensitivity=-200 dBm

    eth1 IEEE 802.11b ESSID:"" Nickname:"HERMES I"
    Mode:Managed Frequency:2.412 GHz Access Point: None

    Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:10 Rx invalid frag:0
    Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:0 Missed beacon:0

    How do I get rid of eth1 (legacy Origano wireless B) and wlan0 (legacy DLink WNA-2330 wireless G) and replace them with the Netgear driver for wireless N?

    Thanks a lot for your help.
