    After installing ndiswrapper, did you do:
    Code:
    depmod -a
    Then:
    Code:
    modprobe ndiswrapper
    ...to load the module and:
    Code:
    lsmod
    To ensure it was present before attempting:
    Code:
    iwlist wlan0 scanning
    ?

    As root run:
    Code:
    # ndiswrapper -l
    that should show your driver installed. Then you can run:
    Code:
    # iwlist wlan0 scan
    and that should list your wireless access points.

    I use Fedora/Gnome mainly and NetworkManager. I made sure NetworkManager was enabled in services.
