Using a Netgear MA301

I've seen variuos references to people using this PCI host adapter to use a
wireless card in a desktop system. However, no matter what drivers I load,
none of them seem to work.

Looking at the code that comes with it (linux-wlan-ng) it would appear that
the driver is the same, it's just a matter of getting it to detect it. The
driver is expecting to find it attached to a CardBus bridge, but the MA301
doesn't appear to be a bridge in that way.

So, does anyone else have one of these working?

The actual wireless card itself (MA401) works perfectly with the standard
orinoco driver in a laptop.

Thanks in advance,
