Netgear PCMIA network card not recognised
As a total newbie to linux I decided to install ubuntu on an old Rock Agenda laptop that I used to use with Windows XP. The installation appears to have worked fine but it does not recognise the Netgear WPN511 wireless PCMIA that I need to contact my router. Am I correct to assume that I need to install a linux driver for this card? If so, any ideas where I could find one as I am not getting any response from Netgear. All suggestions would be most welcome. Thanks, Peter
