Unhappy Wireless doesn't work [rtl8185 with ndiswrapper], Arch Linux

I use ndiswrapper with the rtl8185 drivers on my Arch Linux. I can't manage to get internet access.

$ iwconfig wlan0 essid [essid] key [wep key]
sets the WEP key, but when I use:
$ iwconfig wlan0
it shows the essid as set to "off/any" instead of the essid I supply.

Does anyone think they could help me fix this?
