    Hello,

    You mentioned that it started to scan. So are you seeing the netgear router in the wifi lists? And when you try to connect it fails?

    Or are you not able to see the wifi router from the list?

    It is not supported out of box. Usually, windows only device do not work, but some device can be worked if you know how to install and compile few things. Take a look at the following page.
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wi...e/NetgearWG111

    Before doing anything else read Ndiswrapper which allows to run many windows driver under Linux:
