    Card not recognised


    Kubuntu 8.04 doesn't recognise my wireless card.

    Using a Netgear WG311T, which worked in 7.10, and dual-booting it with XP.

    Any ideas?

    Ok, I have the results of the three but I'm not certain exactly which parts to post. For now, I've uploaded all but the error command results in a txt. Tell me if you want me to narrow it down a bit...

    I don't know what the errors are that you didn't post. If they are important, I'll never know.

    From what you did post, this is what I found. Here, I think, is the wireless:
    Code:
     01:0b.0 FireWire (IEEE 1394) [0c00]: Texas Instruments TSB43AB22/A IEEE-1394a-2000 Controller (PHY/Link)  [104c:8023]

    That would mean it would use th
    e ath5k driver. That driver isn't loading, but I do see this driver loading.
    Code:
     Module                  Size  Used by
    ath_hal               192592  0


    That is part of the MadWifi driver, but the full driver doesn't seem to be loading. It is different than the ath5k, as it isn't 100% open source.

    I would try removing that module, and loading the ath5k module.
    Code:
    sudo modprobe -r ath_hal
    Code:
    sudo modprobe ath5k
    If this doesn't work, then just install the MadWifi driver through Synaptic.

    Oh, I forgot to post that it doesn't really matter anymore. I got my ethernet up instead...

    Sorry about that
