Did you also download and install the Windows drivers?

NdisWrapper needs to be used with the Windows driver for your card's chipset. Did you check which chipset your card uses (as directed on the NdisWrapper installation instructions)? After doing this, you need to check the list on the NdisWrapper wiki, to see which driver to download for that chipset. The drivers on your CD may or may not work and the installation instructions say not to use them.

Aha...I see.. you meant API driver.
I havent come to that yet.
I have read that it works better for kernel version 2.6

Here's what I got from compiling;

Yes it could be the chipset, since mine is Broadcom(linksys).
It's my old kernell 2.4.2.2 for sure, don't you agree?

This is a problem.

Given that the installation instructions say you need at least 2.4.26, I'd agree.
