Good for you! It took me a long time too, because the linux-wlan-ng drivers didn't know how to recognize my model. But now it works, been using it for a few months. Surprisingly stable, and fewer dropouts than the Windows drivers.

EDIT: Didn't see that last bit... :slap: You need to add this to /etc/modules.conf:
alias wlan0 ndiswrapper

Then it should work.
