Just to update,
At the time I wrote the last post in this thread, I was using Mdk 10.1. While I did get the wireless working, I found out that Firefox in Mdk 10.1 was the culprit.
When I tried Mozilla, everything worked fine.
I've since upgraded to Mdv 2006 and it's even easier to set up. Firefox works, as does almost everything else.
The most critical issue that I ran into was choosing the right firmware for my drivers, this is crucial.
Best of luck to one and all!!
