WG511 (china version) with ndiswrapper
First off, I'm about at my wits end with the linux wireless issue. First I had a D-Link card that doesn't work with anything so then I asked around and bought the WG511 which also came with a new router. As luck would have it, the WG511 I bought is not actually a Prism54 chipset so I'm back to ndiswrapper. I followed the installation instructions exactly at sourceforge.net and I'm running into a problem.
When I get to the step:
It can't find anything. Everything works fine up until that point.
I noticed that the LED lights that are on my card (that work when booted to windows) are not illuminated in linux. Nothing I do makes these lights come on, and the ndiswrapper installation page says that it will not work unless the "radio" is on. The WG511 is a card so there is not a bios or hard key on my laptop to toggle the radio. I looked in the config files for a setting but couldn't find one. Does anyone have any advice? This is killing me and I don't want to get a 3rd card.
