You need after installing ndiswrapper have to done the following commands in a terminal (Application - Accessories - Terminal)
copy and paste

sudo depmod -a
sudo modprobe ndiswrapper
sudo ndiswrapper -m

See ndiswrapper when you do?

lsmod

To load ndiswrapper when you boot

sudo gedit /etc/modules

and add on a line on its own at the end of the file

ndiswrapper

Reboot and your wireless card should be recognised

Good luck

Look like your windows driver is installed correctly. These commands will insert the ndiswrapper into the kernel.

sudo depmod -a
sudo modprobe ndiswrapper
sudo ndiswrapper -m


This command checks that that ndiswrapper is loaded. A load of text will be listed and you should see ndiswrapper somewhere in that list.

lsmod


Adding ndiswrapper to /etc/modules makes sure ndiswrapper is loaded when the machine boots up.
Hope that sort of explains what is going on well to the best of my ability anyway.

Good luck

Everything turns out fine by now, thanks for that. But I absolutely have no idea of how to connect to my wireless router now..! :S
