Fedora 6/Netgear WPN311GE/Mad wifi HELP
Linux Newb here. The box has an active ethernet connection but needs to be moved and will have to have a wireless connection in its new location.
I am having problems setting up my netgear WPN311GE on Fedora core 6 using the madwifi drivers.
I have installed madwifi from livna repository using
yum install kmod-madwifi
In Network configuation I now have "Atheros communications, Inc AR5212 802.11abg NIC" listed under hardware but as an ethernet type NOT wireless.
If I try to add a new wireless connection profile I cannot select the Atheros NIC.
I suspect I have not installed something I should have - but really have no idea how to procede from here.
Any help would be much appreciated.
