Mods are going to be displeased at your double post ( http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...d.php?t=441065
). I'm replying here because Linux-Wireless is the appropriate forum for your problem and "Wireless Tools jacked my jive all up" is way cooler than "Another wireless problem".
First, just to venture a guess but if you recompiled ndiswrapper after installing v28 it would've taken it. Second, it seems like the card is receiving an IP, are you sure it errors out?? Third, you very very very very rarely (and some would say never) HAVE to flush and fill a linux box. Certainly not over wireless drivers. Have a little patience and someone will be able to help you out.
