NetGear 108mbps Wireless USB 2.0 Adaptor
What are the nessessary materials for this adaptor to get recognized on the linux machine and being able to search for wireless access points.
I appreciate your help, thank you.
The best wireless cards for linux are the cheap ones they use the prism2 chip set the card your friend has is got the Atheros chip set not linux compatible. This card here will work "Netgear MA311 Wireless Network card - Prisim II chipset"
Atheros based chipsets are supported under Linux, I have one.
Belkin F5D7000 (rev 01) you should use the Madwifi driver.
pay special attention the section entitled "Requires", those are the files you need to have installed(dependancies) in order for madwifi to work.
Consider downloading all the requires since you can't use yum.
be SURE to download the version that matches your kernel version.
