    Compaq V3029AU wireless help

    v3029 wlan is not working
    ===========================
    I am using compaq v3029 notebook and OS is ubuntu 8.04.This is using BCM4312 broadcom chipset.I installed wirelessdriver using ndiswrapper.The driver file I used for installation was "bcmwl5".This I got from windows installtion area.After this step my network manager is showing 80% signal strength.But I am not able to connect to it.I gave all info
    in network manager->wirelessconnection(in roaming mode).

    In System->preferences->Windows wireless driver:
    In currently installed driver area , its showing "bcmwl5 Hardware present:no"
    My settings are based on static IP configuration.This wireless has WEP enabled network with 64bit pass key.
    I tried the following commands in my terminal.


    1)sudo lshw -C network
