    netgear 32 bit cardbus model wg511


    Hi,

    Hardware specs:
    Laptop - HPPavilion ZT1120
    wireless network card netgear 54Mbps wireless Pc card 32-bit cardbus model WG511

    Hi I have a laptop that I would like to run Suse 11.0 i386 on but Suse will not work with the wireless card installed...This in itself is odd because I can run Puppy Linux on the same laptop and the wireless card works fine...

    In Puppy Linux the wireless card is set up as:

    module prism54
    bus pci
    description the prism54 802.11 wireless lan adapter

    Note I'm not really a hardware/network guy so any pointers should be detailed, here are my questions...

    1.Do I need to bother with ndiswrapper in this situation?
    2.Do I need to download the firmware for the card, if yes do you know a website?
    Every website I visited offered the firmware/install as a self extracting exe for windows ie
    no good for Linux.
    3.Is there a tutorial or walk through for setting up netgear network cards in Suse 11.0?

    Thanks in advance...Gerard4143
