No wireless capabilities on Fedora 8, ndiswrapper fails,


I am unable to get wireless connectivity on my laptop with Fedora 8.
I have a bcm4318. I have followed the ndiswrapper instructions (i think).
I have tried so many differant approaches to solving this that I am no longer sure what is what.
I may need to start at the beginning of this process.

I now have it to the point it attempts to log on to my network and it asks for a password. When I enter the password it tries to connect then comes back asking for the password again.
The password is correct as I have confirmed it on my wifes'"vista" laptop.
Not sure what the problem is now....
