cannot connect to access point


I have a Belkin 802.11b card which is running with ndiswrapper. I finally have that up and running...I think... But now when I scan for networks it doesn't find anything...The AP is 10 ft. away. Perhaps it is because the AP is a G router but I have not been able to get it to work. Help.

Moved: This thread is more suitable in Wireless Networking and has been moved accordingly to help your thread/question get the exposure it deserves.

If the router is G only then it will not work. Most G APs do have an option for B or G or both though.

the router is set on a mixed mode and it connects under windows. So what are some other possible causes for my problem?

It is most likely that the driver isn't working with ndiswrapper. What do you get from running:

Once i load the driver it i run ndiswrapper -l it says driver present, hardware present and once i run modprobe to install wlan0 shows up so Im pretty sure that the driver is working...would a downgrade work?
