WG311v2 almost working with Edgy (w/o ndiswrapper) need help with the rest
Ok I now have my netgear WG311v2 (an acx111 chipset) almost working. The light comes on and even blinks shows up enabled the /etc/network/interfaces file looks good. I can scan for networks it just will not connect. As has been posted I tried knetworkmanager and during the "activation stage:configuring device" it freezes at 28% when I to connect. Looks like the access point is associating with "linksys" like I want it to because of the iwconfig output, but I can't successfully ping. So I'm at a loss, so close but so far. If anyone has any suggestions please let me know I would appreciate any help that can be provided.
I did comment out the wlan0 before starting knetworkmanager, but since it did not work I have stopped trying KNM and I uncommented the wlan0.
