I'm trying to install drivers for the Netgear MA521 wireless card with Knoppix 5.0.1.
I've tried installing both the Netgear drivers (NETMA521) and also the RealTek (net8180) drivers. Both seem to install OK, since "ndiswrapper -l" says "driver present, hardware present" for either driver.

Then ndiswrapper -m that gives: "Adding alias wlan0 ndiswrapper to /etc/modprobe.d/ndiswrapper"

But when I do "modprobe ndiswrapper" I get the following message regardless of which drivers I'm installing:

FATAL: Error inserting ndiswrapper (/lib/modules/2.6.17/misc/ndiswrapper.ko): Invalid argument

Any help or insight would be much appreciated!
