OS won't read ethernet card.

About a week and half ago. I installed Mandriva 2011 operating system

onto one of my hard drives. Everything went well, except for one thing.

The OS can't read the ethernet card (Netgear PCI Adaptor GA311).

Can I use the drivers' cd to correct this situation.

Or, do I need to start a terminal and input some code?

... and what would that code be?


Thank You,

If the network card is not detected, there used to be a wrapper to allow native Windows drivers to be loaded and used under Linux. The software was called ndiswrapper. An alternative is to google for native Linux drivers,... and you should contact the manufacturer, and ask them to provide the driver for Linux!
