Hello everyone. I am completely new to Linux, and honestly, I have no idea what I'm doing. I started my Linux venture by installing a NetGear WG311v3. I read EVERY GUIDE that I could find on this forum and everywhere else, but none of them have gotten my past my current problem. All of the guides tell me to "sudo modprobe ndiswrapper" but when I do so, nothing happens. Well, as far as I know, nothing is supposed to happen, its just supposed to be blank. But thats not my problem. My problem is that when I iwconfig after that, it doesn't list my wireless card still, despite that all of the previous steps have worked. I got to the point where it said that the driver was installed and that the device was active, but nothing after that. I've looked for hours trying to find a solution to this problem so sorry if i missed that. Thanks!!!

Information about my system:
It is a desktop
Ubuntu 8.04
