ndiswrapper - everything looks fine, but no go
Let me first state that I'm a linux rookie.
Everything that I have read says that when I get the following messages, I should be good to go. But . . . I got nothin'
Here's what I've go so far:

Can anyone help me out? I've got all security measures on my router turned off and still can't connect.
What happens when you ping the router?
What happens when you ping the router? I am guessing that your router is at 192.168.1.1. Try
You are not reaching the router.
You are not reaching the router, so there is a problem. If it worked you would see the return time like the previous attempt with the cable. Did you end the ping with a ctrl-c? If you do it should tell you how many packets were dropped. Probably a 100% fromthe looks of it.
My fault bquark. When I pinged it the first time, I still had the cable plugged in. When you said to ping the router, I thought we were testing the router, not the wireless card.
This time I tried it wireless only and received this message:
ryanrad@(none):~> ping 192.168.1.1
PING 192.168.1.1 (192.168.1.1) 56(84) bytes of data.
It has been so long that we have been working on this I have forgotten what I was having you check. I will think about it.
