Go back to the driver CD that came with your card and use the Windows XP
driver like you were supposed to. If you do, you should see this

twi0: <NETGEAR WG311v2 802.11g Wireless PCI Adapter> mem
0xf4020000-0xf403ffff,0xf4008000-0xf4009fff irq 10 at device 14.0 on pci0
twi0: NDIS API version: 5.1		<--------
twi0: 11b rates: 1Mbps 2Mbps 5.5Mbps 11Mbps
twi0: 11g rates:  6Mbps 9Mbps 12Mbps 18Mbps 24Mbps 36Mbps 48Mbps 54Mbps

You never bothered to mention just which Windows driver from the CD
that you used, but now I know it wasn't the XP one. You probably
picked the Win2000 one instead. Minus 10 points for you.
