Re: WiFi problem netgear WNA3100 usb not responding

A quick search shows that people have gotten that wireless card to work on different distros using ndiswrapper, which you should be able to install right in synaptic.  You might also want to install the GUI for it, ndisgtk.  I haven't really used ndiswrapper, but there seem to be a few guides for using it to get that netgear WNA3100 working.


I willfully participate in a campaign of misinformation!

Re: WiFi problem netgear WNA3100 usb not responding

Hi robertsohl , Let's have a look at the chip so we can see what drivers are available. Please post the output from the following.

# lsusb
# lsmod

and look for words like "wireless" to find your card type.  ,and "usbcore" for the driver that is loaded.

#Edit; add lsmod

Re: WiFi problem netgear WNA3100 usb not responding

lsusb and lsmod are terminal-commands, robertsohl. Run these commands in the terminal.

Re: WiFi problem netgear WNA3100 usb not responding

hi robertsohl,
since those commands can give long terminal outputs, a convenient way to do it is to type into a terminal

lsusb > ~/lsusb.txt
lsmod > ~/lsmod.txt

You'll have now two new text files in your home directory. You can open them with geany and copy/paste into this forum; please remember to use [code ] [/code ] tags to make it more readable.

P.S.: please, try to use more informative titles for your posts so they can easily show up in searches, as a future reference for users with your same problem.. wink
for example you could edit your first post and name it something like "wifi problem, WNA3100 usb not recognized"
