The most random problem has raised its head; and left me a bit baffled.

I have a Gigabyte GA-H55M motherboard; configured to run a SW RAID5 array, and utilising Ubuntu Server 64-bit system.

I have this installed and operating absolutely fine; however, once I tried to install a Netgear WG311T wifi card, the system seems to hang when initialising the fsck.

There doesn't seem to be any issue in the logs; and previously I had this card working fine in a 64-bit installation (using a 2nd motherboard).

Any suggestions on what I can try?

Might I ask why you would ever use a server running off wifi? – Simon Sheehan Aug 8 '11 at 7:43
its out of necessity at the moment; its a home server, and the idiots that installed the broadband connection installed it two floors down... It'll be fully cabled up once i've finished the build... – Bomski Aug 8 '11 at 7:54
Wouldn't it make more sense to put your server near the modem/router and then SSH in? First install you can do near it – Simon Sheehan Aug 8 '11 at 7:57
that is exactly what i have had to do; my bench with all my gear and tools is on 2nd floor; i've had to drop it next to the modem for the time being but it can't stay there... – Bomski Aug 8 '11 at 7:58
