FC3 cannot receive any packets from internet, can only send

I have a NETGEAR MA521 wireless card installed through ndiswrapper. the whole ndiswrapper setup is fine, and everything is correct (so it seems). I statically set my IP, Subnet, and Gateway in Fedora Core 3, and that solved a whole lot of problems. I also added a "route add default gw" so thats all set up. My problem is that I cannot receive anything from either my router or the internet. I can send information fine with no problems. I have my firewall turned off, but I also am wondering if SELinux is blocking me from getting any signals.

Could somebody please help me solve these problems? I would like to stop relying on windows for my internet access.

ok, I checked to make sure the firewall is off, and I turned off SELinux. It still doesn't receive packets.

Could anybody tell me what could possibly be wrong in my network settings that is making me not be able to receive packets?
