issue with linksys wusb54g and ndiswrapper

hey..i've been having some problems with ndiswrapper, but i got it working and have the drivers for the wusb54g installed. it seems to be pretty much working EXCEPT there is an error:

ifup wlan0

Determining IP information for wlan0... failed; no link present. Check cable?

would this be because linux believes it is actually a ethernet type adapter and not a wireless adapter? the config i'm using looks like this one..I'm using fedora core 3. thanks in advance

EDIT: i got all that working device actually is able to be modprobed..modprobe ndiswrapper..and it shows up and i am able to *almost* configure the device (when i do the wep key, linux freezes). this also happens awhile after doing modprobe on ndiswrapper (waiting for about 5 mins)..and then i am forced to hard reboot..can anybody help me with this..? thanks..

also, the different wusb54g drivers (wusb54gv1, wusb54v2, wusb54gv4) are all different models of adapters, not versions of the drivers right?
