Question FC6 + netgear wpn111 usb card

I used ndiswrapper to install the driver files that I extracted from the netgear cd. I used the command:
ndiswrapper -i netwpn11.inf
which (I'm guessing) installed the driver for the card...

After I checked with ndiswrapper -l
which gave this output:
[root@localhost ~]# ndiswrapper -l
netwpn11 : driver installed
        device (1385:5F01) present
I have the device plugged in but how do I get it to connect to the wireless that I have set up?

Once the driver is installed you need to load the ndiswrapper module i.e.
modprobe ndiswrapper

Then you should see a wlan0 adapter interface using the command iwconfig. iwconfig is similar to ifconfig and you use it to configure the wireless adapter. iwlist is another command that has additional features. You can view all APs available i.e.
iwlist wlan0 list

Typically your adapter will connect to the access point (unencrypted) with the best signal automatically. You can and a WEP via iwconfig or wpa_supplicant if using WPA encryption.
