As you can see from lspci, your device is an Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection (rev 02). It uses driver ipw3945 which gets loaded at startup. From lsmod, both ipw3945 and ndiswrapper are present for the same device. The loading of ipw3945 might be what's causing ndiswrapper not to get loaded correctly when you boot up. See here. To make sure that's not what's happening, you could try blacklisting ipw3945, then rebooting. With your favourite editor, open as su: /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist and add to it:
That got the card detected at boot time. Thanks for your help in
Now for the bad news. I can only get the wireless network to
connect to my router automatically if I turn encryption off!
Well OK then. At least I can use it for now...
Various bits of software I use every day just lock up all the time,
My preferred PHP editor, the MySQL GUI Tools and so on which
means that I am going back to XUbuntu for the time being as
everything I need works.
I think Vector has potential and it may be because it is so light
weight that it had these issues. I will prepare a "report" on my
experience in the hope that it helps the Vector team.
I wish I had the time to continue messing with Vector as I liked
the distro in general and it was a fun learning experience but I
have this thing called "liking to eat"
