Netgear's WG511 is not a PCMCIA or PC Card - so definitely not. CardBus support in all releases of eComStation is broken.

The only natively supported PC Cards are Lucent WaveLAN 802.11b wireless cards. You can try to use GenMac for some Atheros chipset based devices.

Hi

Just reading more about it:
* PC Card = PCMCIA Card (older name): 16-bit or 32-bit
* PC Card 32-bit version = Cardbus (alternative name)
- Source

I haven't found any references on the Netgear WG511 from the Hardware site.

Warp: Maybe it will be also interesting for you to try to find some other alternatives, like an Ethernet2Wifi adapter until Arca Noae releases newer wireless PCI drivers.

Hi,

I can recommend a travel router easy to setup and small . I just bought a TP-Link N300 Wireless Wi-Fi Nano Travel Router. Very easy to configure via webinterface. I use it with a old HP 6710B laptop to connect to wifi as the built in does not work very well with genmac wifi driver. everything is in the package to get you up and running in a few minutes.

I attach the picture of the card.
I also would like to purchase a new laptop with AMD processor. the laptop I am using is obsolete, from year 2003.
I am waiting for the new version of Arca Os, the one which boots from usb keys.
