How do I stop the driver b43-pci-bridge from loading? I have blacklisted ssb, b43 and b43-legacy but the said driver still takes control of the wireless card, instead of ndiswrapper.
Thanks in advance!

I am sure that the answer to my question must be well-known to the gurus here, so bump.

Same thing happening here (on my friends laptop), after each reboot, have to run the same old commands. Even though ssb is blacklisted and ndiswrapper is on /etc/modules, where it should get automatically loaded.
sudo rmmod ssb
sudo depmod -a
sudo modprobe ndiswrapper Guess making a shell script for those and executing it during login would work, but seems a bit of a workaround instead of a fix.

So it does seem to be a genuine problem. Strange!

Yes I have the same problem, b43-pci-bridge still pops up after blacklisting it.

OK fix for me was to run the Hardy fix at

Hope that works!

You might try:

sudo update-initramfs -u
It should update the system so that it will not load the b43 modules when the system starts up.

Hope that helps.

I was having the same problem and this finally fixed it, among other things. Thanks!
