Wireless in debian 4.0 ETCH
I have a Belkin 54G PCI wireless card.
Debian acknowledged the card as valid hardware when I installed it on my PC.
What it cannot do, however, is log on to the wireless network, EVEN THOUGH this network can be recognised by the same PC running XP, and also by my Apple MacBook Pro and Airport card.
The configure network screen of the Debian install routine identifies the card as "Broadcom Corporation BCM4318 (AirForce one 54g) 802.11g wireless.
When searching for the wireless network, it fails.
Has the card been misidentified? Should I simply start again from within Linux, which installs fine?

Although this chip is supposed to be natively supported, I prefer using ndiswrapper to get it working. What I have done:
Blacklist bcm43xx module
sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist#broadcom native driver
blacklist bcm43xxrmmod bcm43xxndiswrapper -lndiswrapper -i WMP54GS.inf
ndiswrapper -mdriver present, hardware foundmodprobe ndiswrapper
