Hi, I'm trying to connect to the internet through BT Home Hub (wireless connection using Netgear WG111T wireless dongle). The blue light on the dongle is flashing so it appears the pc has recognised it, however it says the hardware is not present. Furthermore under Network Connections, Wireless tab, I have Wireless connection 1, and next to this it says "Never". I can't seem to change the "Never". Does anyone know what settings etc I need to enter to get this working. I have installed the drivers from the cd that came with it via ndiswrapper/ndisgtk. Please be gentle with me and explain in extremely simple terms as I'm completely new to Linux and haven't a clue what I'm doing with it :confused:. Many thanks in advance.
