    WGT155T wireless card causing slackware to hang at boot


    Hi all, i installed the madwifi driver for my netgear WG511T, reboot, it gets to the activating hardware detection /etc/rc.d/rc.hotplug and just stays there with a blinking cursor, the WG511T lights are blinking one at a time alternating. Does anyone have any suggestions on what i should try next? Ive already re-installed slackware 10.2 twice trying to get this wifi card going but no luck yet. Any help at all would be very appreciated.

    For some reason even with acpi off (upgraded to the 2.6.13.4 kernel) the madwifi driver didnt want to work, i tried the ndiswrapper driver for my card and after altering the rc.wireless.conf and rc.inet1.conf it was up and running

    The 2.6.13.4 kernel seemed to fix the 4K_STACK problem, unless something else did it
