ndiswrapper does have some strange bugs, but it is hard to say for sure without doing a little more testing. The first thing I would do would be to test your latency when connected via Ethernet or some other interface on the machine vs your WiFi interface. If you see that latency goes up a significant amount over WiFi vs Ethernet, then you would know that it isn't an issue with the network configuration on the system as a whole or the kernel, but an issue pertaining to that specific interface.
i actually discovered it wasn't related to ndiswrapper at all. or even wireless.
I recently installed opensuse 11 on my desktop and was having the same problem, over ethernet. After a little research i discovered that ipv6 is what was causing the problem on my desktop. Turns out it was the same solution on my laptop.
Just have to comment out the line that loads ipv6 module and reboot
Yes this seems to be a common problem,..I used Firefox and typed in the address bar about:config then typed in the filter IPv6 What happens next you have to double click it to change Boolean from false to true..
That allows FF not to look for IPv6..
In my symptoms were, it took a long time to look up the DNS then slowly loaded the page..
