New to U; I have a gig lan card that works fine however I bought a new netgear wg311 pci wireless card that was on the wiki recommended list by HJ Heins. Installed and went to synaptic and loaded what I thought was the package for the card (madwifi). I set up the SSID etc however the card does not work; I tried un plugging the lan card to see if the wireless would kick in however it does not. I only get notification when I plug the lan card in.
I downloaded what I thought was a package from Madwifi however it turned out to be the files for the card; I am not familiar or savy enough with Linux to do a manaul intsall. Can I use this files to create a package with synaptic.
