    Per another forum, someone mentioned doing
    Code:
    # ndiswrapper -m
    Seems that was a very important step, I am 90% there - wlan0 initializes, but I still have to do
    Code:
    # iwconfig
    for it to actually be useable...

    Hey broggyr,
    I have a post open on this forum concerning wireless problems with the same chipset. It sounds like your problem could be related to mine in some way. I was wondering if you might know some information on this? Here is the post http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/topic-47437.html

    I appreciate the help!

    By the way, what did this command do for you?
    Code:
    ndiswrapper -m
    If you could share the forum, it might help me. Thanks again.

    I got some help from this forum, and another called www.linuxquestions.org -- check this thread out.

    Also,
    Code:
    # ndiswrapper -m
    should add the wireless ndiswrapper info to /etc/modprobe.conf
