thank you for quick reply i have this from those commands

andrew@storage:~$ sudo modprobe ndiswrapper
andrew@storage:~$ dmesg | grep ndis
[  812.909662] ndiswrapper version 1.57 loaded (smp=yes, preempt=no)
[  813.254367] ndiswrapper: driver bcmn43xx64 (,08/26/2009, loaded
[  813.803107] usbcore: registered new interface driver ndiswrapper
woo it now pops up, so i presume it was the ndiswrapper was not loaded?
