    I just installed RedHat Linux AS on a server that does not have access to hardwire networking, so i want to install a USB Wireless adapter to it.

    I checked my inventory and found a Microsoft MN-510 USB Adapter and a NetGear WG111 USB Adapter. Does anybody know where I could find Linux drivers for one of these?

    The NetGear WG111 V.2 will work with ndiswrapper. I don't think V.1 is very friendly with linux. Surprisingly, The V.2 worked out of the box with the sabayon mini livecd (have no idea how they managed this, but it works).

    Code:
    # ndiswrapper -i netwg111.inf /*install the windows xp driver*/
    # ndiswrapper -l /*check if it is installed*/
    
    # modprobe ndiswrapper /*if works, you can see the light on*/
    
    # ndiswrapper -m /*boot it as a module*/
    
    # iwconfig wlan0 /*you can see some information about the setting*/
    # iwlist wlan0 scan /*you can see some information about your AP*/
    
    
    # iwconfig wlan0 essid ESSID key restricted XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX 
    
    # dhcpclient wlan0
    
    use "network-admin" to write the /etc/network/interfaces.


    The MN-510 USB should work with the Prism2 driver.
