Hi! I'm having a bit of trouble getting wireless working in Hardy. I have an HP Pavilion TX2500z.

I've run through these guides using the driver for my BCM4310 rev01 without luck:

First, here is some information
lspci
Code:
08:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4310 USB Controller (rev 01)
lshw -C network
Code:
  *-network               
       description: Wireless interface

You'll notice it's loaded with ndiswrapper--I'll get to that. First, before I did anything, it found it via the restricted drivers using driver wl, but it wouldn't put it in use. Here's a screenshot of what I'm talking about:


So, I decided to try to get ndiswrapper working. I can get through everything, and it seems ok until ndiswrapper -l. Instead of
Code:
Installed ndis drivers:
{name of driver}  driver present, hardware present
I get
Code:
bcmwl5 : driver installed
	device (14E4:4315) present (alternate driver: wl)
Notice the "alternate driver: wl". Using sudo modprobe -r wl didn't help any.

I finished the install steps, and I believe it loads ndiswrapper correctly, so I think it's because it's still using the wl driver. I believe it's working because this is the output of /var/log/messages after I finished installing it:
Code:

I've added these to /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist but it didn't make it work:
Code:
blacklist bcm43xx
blacklist wl
blacklist b43
blacklist b43legacy
blacklist b43 ssb
blacklist b43ssb
blacklist ssb
Installing ndiswrapper gave me a "Wireless Networks" section in the network-manager icon, but my network doesn't show up.

Help is very appreciated. I've run out of ideas. Thank you very much.
