Unhappy NDISWrapper


Hello

I need instructions on setting a ndiswrapper wlan card to work with my netgear wireless router, I have the WLAN driver install in NDISwrapper, but when I go to YAST I don't see the wireless card. Any Ideas I'm use SuSE Linux 9.3

NDISWrapper

I do not see my card under iwconfig, but the ndiswrapper driver is installed.

There is a power light on the card as well.

Is there any other details needed

I reinstalled NDISWrapper and install the driver
ran modprobe ndiswrapper
and did ndiswrapper -m

I then found the card in YAST and configured. But now what? Is There any special configuration in YAST, such as module or card type.

I am using GNOME btw.
