mandriva 2010 wireless cannot connect

I have been using 2008.1 for some time and got the wireless working using ndiswrapper and the bcmwl5.inf.

I upgraded my laptop to 2010 and using the same connection method/configuration, it does not connect.

anyone experience the same issue with 2010??

any solutions??

Can you scan the air, can your wireless find any AP?

same prob

Same problem here, Just installed Mandriva 2010 not connecting to wireless connection.
It searches and finds all available wireless connection and when I select my SSID (trying connect to it), it tells me "connection failed"

My laptop is ASUS.
