I've just install ndiswrapper without a hitch.

iwlist wlan0 scan is showing my networks fine.

but when i type "route" it does not show the default gateway. from windows i've determined it's 192.168.1.1. i try typing
"route add default gateway 192.168.1.1" but it says "?(SIOS)ADDR: Network is unreachable"

i also have brought it up using
ifconfig wlan0 up




1. what might be causing this?
2. what does this do? ifconfig wlan0 up 198.162.1.1
doing this seemed to add this line to the route output
198.162.1.1 * 255.0.0.0 and whatever the last field is

edit: i can't even ping my router.
