What version of Mandriva? Is your network Wpa? Is it a usb card?

From what I'm seeing, rtl8187 drivers are included in recent kernels.

Were you able to to connect to unsecured networks with the linux drivers?
If so, are you sure ndiswrapper is loading at boot time and not the linux drivers? You may need to blacklist the linux drivers in /etc/modprobe.conf. Mandriva is pretty good about managing drivers in this situation but you could be experiencing a glitch.

Ndiswrapper should certainly handle the wpa connection and this configures automatically with wpa_supplicant in Mandriva.

According to a quick search on the linux drivers, they should handle wpa. It could be that wpa-supplicant is not compatible with the kernel drivers and manual configuration would be necessary. More searching should clear this up. Hope this helps. I would assume you are using ifconfig, iwconfig, and ndiswrapper -l to check your settings.
