Sorry I dont have an answer for your question, but I never heard of ndiswrapper.... I have the same chipset on my laptop and I use driverloader to get it working. Why did you choose ndiswrapper? Do you know offhand if the wireless card can be put into "monitor mode" with ndiswrapper?? Thank you
Sorry I cannot help yet. I had my card working then decided to upgrade Mandrake 10ce to official and it messed it up. I am getting the same results you are. I will try a fresh install hopefully tonight, the upgrade is also doing something wierd the the pcmcia, there is no power to the card unless the card is in at boot.
I am posting this from my broadcom card with the ndiswrapper driver. I am using Mandrake 10 with version 0.6 of the ndiswrapper. Once I had installed the driver and pointed it to the windows driver, make sure you run ndiswrapper -m or manually edit the module.conf and/or modprobe.conf by adding the line
alias wlan0 ndiswrapper
you will also need to create or edit the ifcfg-wlan0 file adding
