    If i understand rightly it is a usb adapter?
    There is a program called NDISWrapper, if you download the .deb file and install it on your laptop. Then look in the windows drivers for a file that ends with .inf, if there is a choice use the xp driver first.
    The NDISWrapper.deb file can be found here:
    http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/poo...n/ndiswrapper/

    You should only need the file:
    ndiswrapper-common_1.52-1ubuntu1_all.deb
    but im not using ubuntu so can test it.
    This should work but not all devices are supported yet.
    I hope this helps

    You're definitely going to have to use a Ndiswrapper.

    I've setup tons of Ndiswrappers so I'm gonna try to help you right now.

    First off with Netgear you'd probably want to install the Windows XP drivers.

    Code:
    ndiswrapper -i netwg111.inf /*install the windows xp driver*
    Then you want to check if the Ndiswrapper installed correctly:
    Code:
    ndiswrapper -l
    Then do the following:
    Code:
    modprobe ndiswrapper
    If it works you should see the light.
    Code:
    ndiswrapper -m
    You then want to boot it as a module, you're gonna have to for Netgear.
    Code:
    iwconfig wlan0
    Look over your settings make sure everything is cool, then
    Code:
    iwconfig wlan0 essid ESSID key restricted (whatever it is here)
    After all that, do this one last thing:
    Code:
    dhcpclient wlan0
    Then you should be set, I have yet to use a Netgear wireless adapter but this is one way it worked for some people, and it might work for you.

    If you have any troubles at all feel free to contact me, I've setup tons and tons of Ndiswrappers so I can help you pretty good I think, but again hopefully this helps.
