    ndiswrapper wireless hangs when connecting

    I have got a older laptop Packard Bell Easynote G1320, with Agere wireless network card.
    I have loaded the following driver with ndiswrapper:

    When I try to connect to the wireless network, with WEP ASCII password, the computer hangs after the first green dot appears.
    I then have to turn off the laptop with the power button.
    Anyone any ideas?

    Look for another driver -- you have the wrong windows driver.

    It is the right driver. I have used the driver in windows.

    I have also tried Ubuntu 8.10 Intrepid Ibex.
    The same thing happens here.
    But now lspci no longer lists the network card as unknown.

    02:04.0 Network controller: Agere Systems: Unknown device ab34

    now i get the following:

    02:04.0 Network controller: Agere Systems Device ab34
