Hello, i'm what people refer to as a nix n00b. I have just installed mandrake10.1 and i'm having alot of problems getting my wireless connection to work..

1 - MCC see's that i have a Netgear MA111 USB adapter plugged in & is using prism2 drivers, but there are no wireless options.

2 - If i try to manually setup a wireless connection via MCC using prism2/prism54 drivers, it pops up with something i can not read, and takes me back to the driver list.

3 - iwconfig returns NO wireless extensions.

I honestly do not know what to do now. I feel as though i've tried everything. Any help would be appriciated.

Just an update on the situation, i manage to get ndiswrapper on, and loaded the driver correctly, but still nothing =/
