    The three commands returned nothing, no apparent response?

    That is a good thing. Only error messages come up when doing this. What this means is that the modules unloaded happily and ndiswrapper loaded ok. We can check that ndiswrapper is there by doing an lsmod|grep ndiswrapper.

    Can you post the following:
    Code:
    lshw -C network
    ifconfig
    iwconfig
    iwlist scan
    It will see if the wireless is seen and working.

    Re: Broadcom Chipset Help!

    Ok. Something is being stubborn. Your lshw -C network is showing that the b43 module is still there.

    Let's remove the b43, b44, and ssb module and then do check the device:
    Code:
    sudo modprobe -r b43 b44 ssb
    lshw -C network
    If all goes well here, that should produce an unclaimed card. If that is true, try:
    Code:
    sudo modprobe ndiswrapper
    lshw -C network
    That should produce a card using ndiswrapper.

    removing b43 and b44 did produce an unclaimed card, as you said, however the command to use ndiswrapper didn't work, result as follows:

    Re: Broadcom Chipset Help!

    So now we know that the ndiswrapper module is not happy. Let's try to figure out why. To start, we will check and see if the version and driver are fine:
    Code:
    ndiswrapper -v
    ndiswrapper -l

    This is the offender!! It is showing bcmwl6. That is a Vista driver. NDISwrapper is not ready for Vista drivers yet. You will need to find an XP driver (bcmwl5).

    Oops! Have installed bcmwl5:

    bcmwl5 : driver installed

    However the GUI Ndiswrapper says "Hardware Present-No" bcmwl6 said yes

    From the terminal, can you post your ndiswrapper -l, and lshw -C network?

    If they show bcmwl5 for the first and ndiswrapper + bcmwl5 (the bcmwl5 might not be there) for the second, try:
    sudo modprobe -r b43, b44, ssb
    sudo modprobe ndiswrapper
    sudo iwlist scan
