Q. How do I install Netgear WG311 (Marvell 88w8335 Chipset) Rev 03 PCI wireless card driver under Ubuntu / Debian Linux operating system? How do I configure WPA authentication using Netgear wireless router and this card?

A. There is a work in progress Linux native driver for Marvell 88w8335 chipset based card. This driver seems to work with USB device oply. However, you can load and configure Netgear WG311 / Marvell 88w8335 chipset based card using Ndiswrapper Linux driver.

Ndiswrapper allows to use Windows wireless card driver and firmware under Linux. You need following softwares to configure Netgear WG311 PCI card:

  1. Ndiswrapper
  2. Netgear WG311 PCI Windows XP driver (available on driver CD or online here)
  3. Instructions are tested on Ubuntu and Debian Linux, but should work with any other Linux distros

Step # 1: Install Ndiswrapper utilities

Open the terminal and type the following command:
$ sudo apt-get update
$ apt-cache search ndiswrapper-utils
$ sudo apt-get install ndiswrapper-common ndiswrapper-utils-1.9

Step # 2: Download Windows Driver for Marvell 88w8335 PCI chipset

$ cd /tmp/
$ wget ftp://downloads.netgear.com/files/wg311v3_1_0.zip
$ unzip wg311v3_1_0.zip

Step # 3: Install Driver

To install driver, enter:
$ cd "/tmp/WG311v3 V1.0/Driver/Windows XP/"
$ sudo ndiswrapper -i WG311v3.INF

Verify that driver was installed:
$ ndiswrapper -l
Output:

mrv8335 : driver installed
        device (11AB:1FAA) present

Finally, install ndiswrapper driver itself:
$ sudo modprobe ndiswrapper
Run iwconfig to see wlan0 interface:
$ iwconfig

Step # 4: Install wpasupplicant

Now install wpasupplicant software, enter:
$ sudo apt-get install wpasupplicant

Step # 5: Configure WPA authentication

Open /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf file using gedit or other text editor, enter:
$ gksudo gedit /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
Append following configuration for WPA:

network={
        ssid="YOUR-NETWORK-ESSID"
        proto=WPA
        key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
        pairwise=TKIP
        group=TKIP
        psk="YOUR-PASSWORD"
}

Save and close the file. Start Wi-Fi Protected access client:
$ sudo wpa_supplicant -Bw -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf -iwlan0

Step # 6: Grab IP address via DHCP

Type the following command:
$ sudo ifconfig wlan0 up
$ sudo dhclient wlan0

Output:

Internet Systems Consortium DHCP Client V3.0.5

All rights reserved.
For info, please visit http://www.isc.org/sw/dhcp/
Listening on LPF/wlan0/00:1e:2a:47:42:8d

DHCPACK from 192.168.0.1
bound to 192.168.0.2 -- renewal in 37933 seconds.

Step # 7: Test connectivity

Type the following command
$ ping yahoo.com
$ host google.com

Fire a webbroser and open gmail or google.com.

Step # 8: Shell Script To Start Everything

Make sure your driver get loaded each time you boot your computer via kernel module configuration /etc/modprobe.d/ndiswrapper file:
$ sudo ndiswrapper -m
Download and use a script called /root/wlan.up. Customize it according to your requirements:
$ gksudo gedit ~/wlan.up

 

Save and close the file:
$ sudo chmod +x ~/wlan.up
You can call this script from /etc/network/interfaces or your personal shell script startup file ~/.bash_profile or from GNOME.

Have you tested it on kubuntu hardy. I can get it to work under gutsy but not under hardy. iwlist wlan0 scan works fine but setting an IP address (either static or via DHCP) doesn’t work. I have noted that others have reported similiar problems under hardy so if you have it work there then I’m very interested.

Cheers

Could this configuration change to the card also be made to work for Windows?
Thanks

notechyet,

This is Linux specific, use your driver cd to load Windows driver. Windows driver has all the features.

Thanks for your prompt reply.
After finding your site I continued searching and found the right drivers here:
http://kbserver.netgear.com/release_notes/d102301.asp
I just came back from the machine I have done the update and all works.
Thanks a million anyway!

Vikas,

Your interface is up and running. Did you configured /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf?

hi vivek,

i dont know about /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf but in some post i seen that by installing ndisgtk and configure using this gui fixes the problem and i followed this procedure.And it works!!

One more thing i want to make the internet connection up when i boot to linux.When i reboots my machine the network configuration GUI shows only
wired connection details.So when i run modprobe ndiswrapper ,the wirless network starts.

But i want to start internet connection automatically when i boots to ubuntu.How to do it?
any fix??

Thanks in advance

Thank you for such a straightforward set of instructions. Like many others, I’d researched, tried suggestions, given up, started all over again. After reading your tutorial, I downloaded the drivers, ndiswrapper, wpasupplicant … unzipped, logged into Linux (I’m using PCLinuxOS), told my config program where to find the NetGear drivers and was online within a matter of just a few minutes! I didn’t actually have to install ndiswrapper because PCLinuxOS installs it by default. Apparently the wpasupplicant program is installed by default also because after pointing to the NetGear drivers, I was asked if I wanted to use WPA encryption. But thanks to you, I knew what to do, what to expect, and I’m a happy camper. Where’s the donation button? Happy Holidays and thanks again.

13 nixCraft March 31, 2009 at 4:54 pm

Create /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf as follows for WPA2-PSK (replace SSID and PSK with your actual values :

network={
        ssid="YOUR-SSID"
        proto=RSN
        key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
        pairwise=CCMP TKIP
        group=CCMP TKIP
        psk="YOUR-PASSWORD-PSK-KEY"
}

To connect type:

wpa_supplicant -B -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf -iwlan0 -dd

To get IP from router, type:

dhclient wlan0

Hi Anthony, it worked for me at first awile ago but then it just got worse so i bought a new wlan card, it’s calld : Smartinfo, and works very good in winxp and win7rc, i got a litle tired of trying keeping the outdated card going, specialy on ubuntu, so i gave up and changed back to winxp :$ but soon i will change back to ubuntu on my laptop, i am pretty sure that a new knowed wlan card will do much better then the WG311 or simular on ubuntu or other linux os. i hope anything of what i just said made any sense but that is my statement

i was using your guide on how to install my wg311 card on fedora 12, can you please add a note that the netgear driver doesn’t work on Linux x64 even tho it works on windows x64

I sincerely thank you for this post. First time ever I try Ndiswrapper and thanks to your help I got my Netgear WG311 (Marvell 88w8335 Rev 03 Chipset) Wireless Card working with Ubuntu 9.10 right now. I only needed to follow the steps to the first line of Step 6 ($ sudo ifconfig wlan0 up) and that was it. Then I added this line to /etc/rc.local and everytime Ubuntu boots up the wi-fi connection is activated. Oh and on Step 5 you need to use an uppercase W instead of lower case, i.e. you need “$ sudo wpa_supplicant -BW -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf -iwlan0″. Thanks again for such a great post!

Time to give linux another try. Just installed simplyMEPIS. looks great, the install went easy, but no wireless. Does anyone really beleive that these 8 steps can be worth it? Great for experts, but one typo and going back or undoing is hopeless for me. Back to windows. Installing windows, and running an exe to install the driver will be quicker. I’ll wait a little longer for linux.

Hi, I was following these steps, and the card is working, it scans in Network-Managers for routers, it connect to my not encrypted neighbour router but it cannot connect to my encrypted router. One time i had the connection after reboot, but only once, and since then it is asking me for password to my router, but cannot connect to it. I have Ubuntu 9.10.
Please help me..

24 Craig March 20, 2010 at 11:56 pm

This worked perfectly! I have WG311 and Ubuntu 9.10. I followed the steps and everything happened as it should. Thanks very much for this guide!
I don’t know how to do this though: “You can call this script from /etc/network/interfaces or your personal shell script startup file ~/.bash_profile or from GNOME. ”
I’m stuck at doing this after every startup: $ sudo wpa_supplicant -Bw -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf -iwlan0
Can anyone tell me how to call the script automatically? I’ve tried a few things but nothing’s worked, and googling for help seems very vague! Thanks :)

Your tutorial is extremely helpful. I am completely new to linux and was able to get an old computer online with an old wireless card using the steps you have outlined above. I plan to spend the next few days trying to actually understand what I did. Thank you!

I think you have a small typo. I think it should be

sudo wpa_supplicant -BW -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf -iwlan0

With a capital W after the -B. At least in the version that ships with Ubuntu 10.04 there is no -Bw.

Ubuntu 10.04, only needed steps 1-3. Added ndiswrapper to /etc/modules and it’s active at boot. I can connect to WPA networks using the network manager.

Hi, im running Backtrack 4 R1 and I have a Marvell Technology wireless card (88w8335). I was reading this article and follow the steps, but at STEP 3:
————————-
Verify that driver was installed:
$ ndiswrapper -l
Output:

mrv8335 : driver installed
device (11AB:1FAA) present

Finally, install ndiswrapper driver itself:
$ sudo modprobe ndiswrapper
—————————————-

Im getting this error:
—————————————-
root@bt:/tmp/WG311v3 V1.0/Driver/Windows XP# ndiswrapper -l
wg311v3 : driver installed
device (11AB:1FAA) present
root@bt:/tmp/WG311v3 V1.0/Driver/Windows XP# sudo modprobe ndiswrapper
FATAL: Module ndiswrapper not found.
—————————————

Am Im making something wrong? or it has anything to do with the version of linux that Im running. I tested this card with windows XP, and it works perfect. I just want to use it whit linux. Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!

Fabulous thread! Thanks a lot, Vivek. Worked for me instantly, even though I’m a Linux newb. I use a different wireless card. Mine is a “Zio X8″ from a German retailer (Conrad), but it has the same chip set as the Netgear described here (Marvell 88w8335). I’ve been looking for a How-to for months and have only been stumbling over useless information. So if anybody is looking for information about the exotic “Zio X8″: Vivek is your guy!

P.S.: Almost forgot. I took another driver, the one from the ZIO-CD. So at step #3 just replace “WG311v3.INF” by “netmw125.inf”.

Hey vivek..
I got my PCI card to recognize wireless networks. However, my network is WPA2-PSK.

What do I have to change in the wpa-supplicant.conf file for WPA2-PSK?

Can I leave it as you said for WPA and would that work for WPA2?

Thanks

I am configuring this card for my professor, and he needs to connect to the school’s unsecured network.

How would I go about doing that?

Thanks, Steve

In my case, I was able to get the network automatically configured by the standard ubuntu wireless status indicator after doing all the steps till installation of wpasupplicant. Did not need to do any configuration after that.

And thanks for the article!

Solved!!!!
I had the same problem with
msprob ndiswripper
FATAL: “module” ndiswripper….

I´d to download and manually install the ndiswripper againd to fix the
/lib/modules/”k-versio”/kernel/net/ndiswrapper/ndiswrapper.ko modules to be fixed….

You possible needed to apt install wpasupplicant again

Download ndiswrapper

Found this in a forum, to make these instructions work for Saucy all you need to do is use sudo apt-get install ndiswrapper-dkms instead of just ndiswrapper. This fixes the modprobe fatal error.
