    What happen's when you run any Live-CD's. Does wifi work?

    Yeah, it does but once again, it's extremely crippled.

    Either or. I'd try Mint first. Debian isn't really for the lazy.

    Re: Lazy mans ubuntu?

    Since Mint 9 is based on Ubuntu 10.04, which is what you say you've tried, it will have the same wireless drivers. So I doubt it would make any difference. Ubuntu 10.10 (Maverick) is due to be released soon. That will have later drivers. It will be worth trying.

    However...

    Tells us very little. What's the wireless chipset? Post the output of:

    Code:
    lspci | grep -i wireless
    Or if that produces nothing:

    Code:
    lspci | grep 802.11

    Cofeecat, I ended up getting this

    I tried installing madwifi again as a friend of mine suggested but everytime I get to ''sudo make'' I get this

    @diebodie, you say you have...

    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Ha...rkCardsNetgear

    It says the WD311T has the AR5212 chip, whereas it's the WPN311v1 which has the AR5001X. Are you sure you've got the model number correct because the chipset number from lspci will be correct, and it's the chipset that matters. You'll probably see that whoever added the entry for the WD311T/AR5212 states both that they are using Madwifi and that it works out of the box. That's a contradiction and, anyway, that entry is old. I'm inclined to take it with a pinch of salt. Also, there's this:

    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Ha...workCardsDlink

    See the line for DN-7031-A. Although that's a PCMCIA card, that has the AR5001X chip and again "works out of the box".

    I know you've said:

    ... I'm wondering on the basis of others' apparently good experiences with that chipset whether this is not a driver problem, but something else. Do you have any other computers/OSs connecting to your wireless rounter? What's the speed like with ethernet? Let's get those out of the way and see whether there's something else (perhaps IPv6) which is the problem.

    Re: Lazy mans ubuntu?

    Thats rather odd. On the box and the driver cd it says WG311T but as you mentioned the chipset doesn't add up. After looking in the .inf file of the driver cd I noticed they sometimes referred it as WG311T13. Not sure if thats relevant?

    I'm actually dual-booting xp and ubuntu. It works flawlessly on xp which is rather unfortunate because the only thing keeping that windows partition on my hard drive is the wifi support.

    I'm gonna try the openSUSE live cd soon, ill post my results.

    Re: Lazy mans ubuntu?

    One thing that might be worth excluding is the IPv6 problem. If you have an older router it might not cope with IPv6 addressing. Ubuntu (and most Linux distros) has/have supported IPv6 since the year dot, but XP doesn't. As a diagnostic test it might be worth disabling IPv6 in Firefox. That's not a complete fix but it might tell us something. Do you need help with that?

    Funny enough, openSUSE seems to have done it (sorta). Though it still seems slightly slower than on windows it's now very much usable. Weird thing is though, on windows I got a signal strength of 100%, on Ubuntu 84% and now with SUSE 60%.

    Thanks everyone, especially coffecat. I appreciate your help in this matter.
