It's a Netgear WG311 (V3 - the Marvel chipset). There is no native Linux
driver available for the chipset so I'm using the Windows XP driver supplied
with the card in conjunction with ndiswrapper, as I did with Ubuntu 7.10

WPA2 worked with Gutsy (although it had a habit of forgetting the password)
and I already have wpasupplicant installed in Jaunty apparently (Synaptic
shows it as installed), so does that mean this is a NetManager problem?
