ndiswrapper 1.10 compilied from sf.net
gcc version 3.3.5 (Debian 1:3.3.5-13)

# lsmod
Module Size Used by Tainted: P
ndiswrapper 163224 0
...

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

# ndiswrapper -l
Installed drivers:
bcmwl5a driver installed, hardware present

# dmesg | grep ndis
...
ndiswrapper version 1.10 loaded (preempt=no,smp=no)


# iwconfig
lo no wireless extensions.

I think you need to issue a 'modprobe ndiswrapper' command.
