    Ndiswrapper -l says the driver is installed but doesn't say "hardware present." though as we can clearly see you have an Atheros based device from lspci. I might be wrong, but my first inclination would be to believe the driver you have installed is not the one that works with your particular hardware. Let's also see:
    Code:
    lspci -n
    If you can't get this solved, the Madwifi driver for Atheros based cards is very easy to install and gives rock solid performance.

    Great! It's always satisfying to hear someone got their hardware working under Linux.
