    In system-config-network, configure it as wlan0. It should show up as ndiswrapper. It has to be configured as a different device than the one you are using that works. Is the one that works a 802.11b device? Likely it gets configured as eth1. Your "G" device with ndiswrapper should show up as wlan0. If you get it configured, de-activate the one that works and activate wlan0.

    Sometimes in system-config-network it works to delete the present wireless settings and just start from scratch. When choosing a new device, choose wireless. Ndiswrapper should be listed there if your /etc/modprobe.conf shows:
    Code:
    alias wlan0 ndiswrapper
    ...and was loaded at boot.
