Broadcom BCM4312 Driver installed via Ndiswrapper, but wireless still not showing up.

I installed the Driver according to this tutorial, however when I attempt to use kwifimanager to connect, it claims all networks are "out of range", when I can readily connect to a network under windows. When I try "ifconfig wlan0 up", it spits out "SIOCSIFFLAGS: No such file or directory".

Output from iwconfig:

lo        no wireless extensions.

eth0      no wireless extensions.

wmaster0  no wireless extensions.

wlan0     IEEE 802.11g  ESSID:""

          Tx-Power=0 dBm

If there's any more info y'all need, please tell me.

You are using Slackware as your distribution? What version?

What's your hardware? Which kernel?

You should look at the next two links;
