Laptop: Acer Aspire 1350 Card: Netgear WG511
Problem: Freezing / Lock up when uploading sys file, and each time card is
inserted into slot
I've just installed Fedora Core 4. After a sucessful installation of the
distro, I have followed the instructions on the linuxant web site, and
downloaded and installed the STK16 Kernel, and re-booted. I then ran the
installer script as instructed and found my inf and sys files from my
windows partition. I then clicked on upload on the final .sys file. The
machine then froze. I ended up unplugging the battery and power and then
re-booted. Now each time I plug in the card the system freezes. It also
will not boot (it hangs) if I leave the card in during start up. If i leave
the card out and watch the screen during boot up I can see Driverloader
The Netgear WG511 Card states that it is 'Made in Taiwan' and I have had no
joy in getting the card to work under Prism54 or Ndiswrapper, or using
Mandrake 10/10.1 or Fedora Core3. The Linuxant driver was / appears to be
my last chance.
Any help would be appreciated.
