I've been trying to get this working for a few days to no avail.
I've searched for answers but so far nothing has worked
I'm running debian etch 2.6.12-1-386
I'm using a Linksys WMP11v4 802.11b PCI card
ndiswrapper -l says that both the driver and hardware are present
ifconfig wlan0 displays

I may just be missing something, but I don't see any problems and I don't know how to help you. What isn't working?
For some reason I am unable to use the connection.
I've tried pinging google, that didn't work.
Then I tried pinging my router, which didn't work either. :dazed:
Hmm, do you have another network card which is setup on the system? If so, try disabling it temproarily and then try the wireless. Note, just pulling the cable out may not be enough, best thing to do would to tell it to not bring wired card on startup.
As for pinging, you might try and use the -I ( - capital i) option i.e. ping -c 4 -I wlan0 somewhere.
Thank you! I'm using the wireless now! Disabling the cable ethernet card fixed it!
MANY THANKS :D :D
