Mandrake 10.1 Official and WLAN (2200BG) nothing works !

Possibilities to use the chipset
1. Driver IPW2200 from Intel
2. ndiswrapper

1) shipped with 10.1 and correct insertet in modprobe.conf

However, no matter what the configuration looks like, iwconfig says always:
eth0      unassociated  ESSID:off/any  Nickname:"MatthiasMobil"
          Mode:Managed  Channel=0  Access Point: 00:00:00:00:00:00
          Bit Rate=0kb/s
          RTS thr:off
          Encryption key:off
          Power Management:off
and syslog:
Dec 19 20:49:56 MatthiasMobil drakconnect[11070]: running: /etc/rc.d/init.d/network restart
Dec 19 20:49:56 MatthiasMobil kernel: ipw2200: Fatal error
Dec 19 20:49:56 MatthiasMobil kernel: ipw2200: Start IPW Error Log Dump:
Dec 19 20:49:56 MatthiasMobil kernel: eth0: Setting MAC to 00:0e:35:98:c2:4b
Dec 19 20:49:56 MatthiasMobil kernel: ipw2200: Calibration
so: Nothing works!

2.) Installed (oldvVersion 0.8), driver from Intel (INF file) directed to ndiswrapper (works), but usage not possible. The Computer knows nothing about ndiswrapper and eth0.


1) New Version 0.18 downloaded and unzipped. Calling "make" results in Compilation error...

2) New ndiswrapper dowloaded compiled. modprobe - computer freezes...

What could I try next ? This is important.
