Ndiswrapper: Troubleshooting

Hi guys,
One whole day of trying to figure out on working with ndiswrapper. Bumped into lots of problem installing. Finally, I managed to install the ndiswrapper v1.9. Then, I linked it with the .inf files with all other files in place in a single folder. The driver is working in windows (confirmed). The installation msg of ndiswrapper was successful with 'driver and hardware present' (soemthing like that) but I further check the dmesg log created by ndiswrapper... finding the following messages as shown below:

[4294825.477000] ndiswrapper version 1.9 loaded (preempt=no,smp=no)
[4294825.542000] ndiswrapper (import:241): unknown symbol: ntoskrnl.exe:'ZwEnumerateKey'

[4294825.542000] ndiswrapper (load_sys_files:217): couldn't prepare driver 'net2pg54'
[4294825.543000] ndiswrapper (load_wrap_driver:111): loadndiswrapper failed (65280); check system log for messages from 'loadndisdriver'
[4294830.999000] acpi-cpufreq: Transition failed

I tried getting inf files from other sources but to my dismay, they also pose the same problem.
Any solutions?

How are you installing ndiswrapper, and the drivers for your card? Also just so I can fully understand the problem, did you find your driver from the Ndiswrapper Wiki?

Similar problem solved by this.

I have used the original windows xp from the manufacturer and it didnt worked out.
I have also tried broadcom's chip set since the manufacturer id and some stuff shows that its from broadcom.
I havent try out the Buffalo of the Ndiswrapper list yet....
Any other suggestions?
