http://forums.opensuse.org – I was trying to get a card to work well with linux. I searched compatibility lists and found the NetGear WG511T to appear good. I got one and when I insert the device, Linux never sees it. In Windows, it appears like normal and drivers install. In OpenSUSE 11.3, the device is never recognized; no lights turn on, not listed under iwconfig, or networkmanager. I've installed the madwifi drivers, but they dont help since the computer never sees the device itself (to install drivers). Is there anything special I need to do to get the device recognized by the system? Thanks, (Distributions)
