    HOWTO: Netgear WG311v3 ndiswrapper

    note : ive posted this because there are so many beginners having problems with this card, even though it is easy for some, there is still a need for this post

    this is for rev 03, look at the end of the post for the other revisions

    NetGear WG311v3 (marvell chipset)

    Install Ndiswrapper
    sudo apt-get install ndiswrapper-utils-1.9 ndiswrapper-common
    Download marvell chipset Drivers (i cant find the link where i got em, so i uploaded them to my own webspace)
    Unzip them
    Load the driver (ini file) (i used the win2k xp drivers)
    ndiswrapper -i /path/to/ini
    lets see if it is present
    ndiswrapper -l
    mrv8335 : driver installed
            device (11AB:1FAA) present
    Save our settings
    sudo ndiswrapper -m
    Start the device
    sudo modprobe ndiswrapper
    once the driver has been installed you can remove the unzipped files, as the needed files have been copied elsewhere

    rm -rvf /path/to/folder
    note : alwasy be carefull of what you delete, use GUI if unsure
    check this sticky out

    Network-manager will make it work automatically in gnome

    if you want it on boot, advanced config for terminal usage can be found here

    Does not work with madwifi

    I'd love to use this but I cannot get access to that web site you posted for the drivers. I'm having a real heard time getting this card to work and cannot seem to find the right drivers. Would you please email that zip file to me?

    Hello !
    I tried to use your instructions to make my wireless card work but it didn't work !
    In the step 3, when I type the command " unzip" I get the following answer : " cannot find or open, or".
    Do you have any ideas how to fix this problem ?
    Thank you,
