    Maybe it's just down for [insert lame excuse here]. I'm sure it'll be back up. How long has it been down?

    Prism54 under gentoo - works for me..

    Hi there - I've just got my Netgear WG511 up and working under Gentoo with a 2.6.9 kernel. What I needed was:

    /etc/hotplug/firmware.agent - just emerge hotplug and you'll get this OK

    /usr/lib/hotplug/fimware has to have a file called isl3890 - this is apparently the firmware for the Netgear PC card. I downloaded it from http://ruslug.rutgers.edu.au/~mcgrof...re/1.0.4.3.arm. After getting the ...arm file you have to rename it to isl3890 and stick it in the ..../firmware directory.

    If you do a tail -f /var/log/messages in one window, and then plug in the card you should see a message about recognising the card. Then when you enter 'ifconfig eth1 up 192.168.1.69' (or whatever for your wireless device and IP address) you should see an 'uploading firmware' message.

    Good Luck - e-mail me if you want any more details or help.

    Regards, Rob D.
