    There is no problem so complicated that you cannot find a very simple answer to it if you look at it in the right way

    Have you installed driver? Assume you got that message trying rmmod ndiswrapper? ndiswrapper -l , driver+hardware present? Then modprobe ndiswrapper and dmesg.
    3 Options - install linux acx module again with firmware as per this -http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/showthread.php?t=374993&highlight=acx
    Craig's how to - you still haven't confirmed build environment is correct
    Ndiswrapper - still to confirm chipset (which all 3 methods rely)

    I don't know how or why but I rebooted the laptop today and it magically worked (i had been rebooting after every major change). I would gladly write a how to for this except for the fact that I don't know what I did...

    Thanks for the insane amount of help

    Great, had that happen myself sometimes. As a matter of interest does lsmod show ndiswrapper and ndiswrapper -l show hardware present? Just so you know for the future what is working.

    ndiswrapper isn't working...the acx111 driver is. I just hope that my curiosity doesn't make me try another linux distro...which it won't for a while after this.
