Linksys WPC11 v4 (ndiswrapper)

I'm having a problem with ndiswrapper. I'm trying to get my wirless-b card, the Linksys WPC11, to work. I followed the instructions here. but I'm still having a problem.

I installed ndiswrapper,

I installed the .inf file by putting it in the directory I extracted ndiswrapper, and then typing 'ndiswrapper -i NET8180.INF'

I verifyed it was loaded by typing 'ndiswrapper -l'

I loaded it by typing 'modprobe ndiswrapper'

I did all of this flawlessly. But it still doesn't work. Whenever I try to configure it, I get various error messages.

I issue the command dmesg | grep 'wlan0' I get nothing. I even go so far as to type dmesg by itself and review the bottom of the log, but I still find nothing.

I followed the instructions to the letter, but it still doesn't work. Please help me, I'm totally clueless at this point.

Thank you.

When do you see these various error messages? When your using iwconfig or ifconfig or? Also it would help to know what the messages say

In the mean time you might also want to take a look at this thread. The instructions are pretty thorough and this is the same process I use.
