    Did you install ndiswrapper or was it pre-installed? Which distro are you using? See this for more.

    Os

    I use newest ubuntu, I installed ndiswrapper from the ubuntu cd.
    *I am trying what was posted on that link
    **I can't compile ndiswrapper it doesn't make because I don't have kernel souce but, It installs fine from the CD oO very strange =.=.
    ***Do you know where kernel source is located on ubuntu CD? I only found kernel headers and lan packages ect -.-.

    I thought I had build-essentials installed thas why I couldnt compile ndiswrapper on its own >_< lol anyway now:
    OK I got it to modprobe ndiswrapper but its still displaying as eth2
    not wlan0 is there a driver for Linux Net Adapter:WUSB54Gv1 that I am supposed to blacklist oO? I blacklisted the v4 one did nothing...

    The naming of the interface isn't a problem, it can appear as wlan0,eth1,ndis0. What does ifconfig and iwconfig report, and what does dmesg report after you modprobe ndiswrapper?

    When you modprobe ndiswrapper just type in the command dmesg in the console and it should give info about ndiswrapper and what just happened when you modprobed it.
    Another thing, try and remove islsm_usb then remove and add back ndiswrapper ie:
    modprobe -r islsm_usb modprobe -r ndiswrapper then modprobe ndiswrapper again and see if you get any luck.
