modprobe -> Unknown symbol in module


Ok well I have been getting better at linux but now I am trying to tackle getting my wireless system up.

First off the basics:
Debian kernel 2.6.8

I have choosen the ndiswrapper (ver .10) over driverloader and am now trying to get it to work.

I have read the wiki and searched many of the mail archives and I just can not find out exactly what my problem is here.

First off my output from lspci

0000:00:0c.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4306 802.11b/g Wireless LAN Controller (rev 02)

then my output from lspci -n

0000:00:0c.0 0280: 14e4:4320 (rev 02)

I have located the right drivers and have the inf and sys file that is required and load them up. After that I do ndiswrapper -l and get the following.

Installed ndis drivers:
bcmwl5 hardware present

So far so good but now is where I run into problems. Trying to load the module I do

modprobe ndiswrapper
Code:
FATAL: Error inserting ndiswrapper (/lib/modules/2.6.8-09122004/misc/ndiswrapper.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)
I then look at dmesg here are the lines that relate to the above.

ndiswrapper: Unknown symbol usb_alloc_urb

lsmod does not list ndiswrapper


also my version of gcc are the same for the module and the kernel which I guess is a common problem.

I also made sure that I have module support, and wireless (non radio) support compiled into the kernel.


Please any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks!
