Ndiswrapper help


So I just found out that my USB Wireless adapter works with ndiswrapper,only one problem. It doesn't want to load up, my screen goes gray, and I have to Force Quit it every time. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling with no progress. Can anyone help?

More details please.

In the meantime. Utilize WExt as your driver of choice. My old laptop had issues with ndiswrapper so I had to go with WExt instead.

Set it up manually using wpa_supplicant and the appropriate switches. wpa_supplicant provides
Code:
wpa_supplicant -Dwext -iwlan0 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
as a generic. Sub in your values accordingly and let us know how it goes.
