ndiswrapper not seeing hardware
I have a dell 1300 truemobile usb wireless card. I installed ndiswrapper and installed the inf file. When i check the status of the hardware and drivers, it recognizes the inf file as valid, but does not see my card. I am using the bcmlw5.inf file, and I was wondering if I need to install the .sys file too.

The .sys is sometimes required when installing the .inf file, since the .inf file is installed I'd say it wasn't the problem (You don't directly install the .sys file). Is the .inf file from your drivers on the CD also what chipset does your card use (Run lsusb and post the output here)

Because the card isn't working I don't have internet right now, and I'm not at home so I can't look up the chipset right now, I'll get back on that.
The drivers I have did not come from the cd, I couldn't find them anywhere on the cd so I downloaded an executable file from Dell's website and got it. There was one executable "SETUP" file on the cd, but it wouldn't let me extract the files.

What does lsusb give you?

lsusb gives the following for the wireless adapter:
Bus 001 Device 005: ID 413c:8102 Dell Computer Corp.

Yes! It sees the hardware now.
But that's not the end of it. System Settings detects the device and the wireless network is enabled. But when i go to Wireless Lan manager thingy, it does not detect any networks. How do I get it to set up the actual network now?
