I am reminded of Sun, Jun 19, 2005 at 11:10:27PM -0500 when Bryan Maynard said:

This seems related to a post I made to the -stable list earlier
today. You might want to watch that thread ("ndis no longer detects
netgear wg311v2") as well, since an answer to that question would
probably be useful to your situation too. I belive my card is based on
the TI ACX110 (or something like that), and I suspect yours is too,
but you might want to check that out, since it could be helpful in
diagnosing the problem.

Good luck,
