I just finished taking a normal Update Manager update. On re-start I get a ureadahead error on boot and my prevoiously working Netgear WG111v3 wireless usb dongle does not power up and Wicad reports "no wireless networks available". Funny, I am sitting next to one.
The driver is still installed, but iwconfig does not show the wireless adapter.
Is this a bug in the update?
(small voice saying HELP!)

I seem to have found the problem. The last update gave me a new real time kernel (2.6.33-7rt). This kernel does not have ndiswrapper.ko in it. I reverted to the previous rt kernel and WIFI is back in business and there is no ureadahead error.
So, how do I get ndiswrapper.ko installed in the new kernel?
