    Your correct. I just had a brain thing then. Try my last post and see what you have listed for the "PCI device 0x14e4:0x4311 (ndiswrapper)"

    I only have one entry, and that's for the realtek LAN NIC.
    I don't actually have one that mentions (ndiswrapper)

    SUBSYSTEM=="net", ACTION=="add", DRIVERS=="?*", ATTR{address}=="00:22:15:2a:b4:1b", ATTR{type}=="1", KERNEL=="eth*", NAME="eth0"

    What do you get with "ifconfig -a"

    No sign of it at all

    It's really starting to sound like a driver issue. Did you try ifup wlan0 (i'm really just throwing stuff out there now).

    I do agree, but that won't be proven until it's fixed

    I booted up in Vista to find the exact driver version, which was the one I was using (I had previously tried every one for that model of computer and this was the only one that ndiswrapper -l returned "device present" for). It's a Intel WiFi Link 5100 v12.0.0.73

    I just looked around the net and found the XP version (not sure if it's actually different) and it has the exact same results.

    ndiswrapper -l
    netw5x32 : driver installed
    device (8086:4232) present
    I also read someone had some dodgy characters inside their driver .inf file, but I had no better luck after running dos2unix on the file.

    This sort of points the finger at the driver, but I'm guessing anything stopping ndiswrapper to run correctly would also cause something similar.

    tail -f /var/log/messages; sudo modprobe -r ndiswrapper; sudo modprobe ndiswrapper

    Thanks again for your help cdtech, greatly appreciated!

    Looking through the list of supported card on the ndiswrapper wiki, it doesn't appear that the card is supported at all

    I might use the SVN version of ndiswrapper and update and recompile weekly. When it does become supported, I'll post a comment here.

    Thanks for your help people!

    Also watch this thread

    If I get time this weekend, I'll retry recompiling the kernel and post my results.
