    NETGEAR WG311v3 802.11g Wireless PCI Adapter(SOLVED)

    Ubuntu Version:8.04 LTS Desktop

    Ndiswrapper
    ndiswrapper-utils-1.9_1.50-1ubuntu1_i386.deb
    ndiswrapper-common_1.50-1ubuntu1_all.deb

    Driver Selected
    NETGEAR WG311v3 windows XP driver

    ----------------------------------------------------------------
    Now Installed all above like this:

    root@-desktop:~# ndiswrapper -h
    install/manage Windows drivers for ndiswrapper

    usage: ndiswrapper OPTION
    -i inffile install driver described by 'inffile'
    -a devid driver use installed 'driver' for 'devid' (dangerous)
    -r driver remove 'driver'
    -l list installed drivers
    -m write configuration for modprobe
    -ma write module alias configuration for all devices
    -mi write module install configuration for all devices
    -v report version information

    where 'devid' is either PCIID or USBID of the form XXXX:XXXX,
    as reported by 'lspci -n' or 'lsusb' for the card

    root@-desktop:~# cd WG311v3\ V1.0/Driver/Windows\
    Windows 2000/ Windows 98/ Windows ME/ Windows XP/

    root@-desktop:~# cd WG311v3\ V1.0/Driver/Windows\ XP/

    WG311v3.cat WG311v3.INF WG311v3.sys WG311v3XP.sys

    root@-desktop:~/WG311v3 V1.0/Driver/Windows XP# ndiswrapper -i WG311v3.INF

    After this i installed a a gui for ndiswrapper and installed winXP driver with it and i got connected to internet.

    This is the GUI package

    try this.. go to system->admin->network and go to wireless connection (wlan0) properties.. and enter the SSID and other details manually.. also try entering the ip address manually and then see if you are able to connect.. the problem is that you arent getting an ip.. your drivers seem to be fine
