    Re: hardy ndiswrapper help

    Weird

    Try

    sudo modprobe ndiswrapper

    and then retry
    modinfo ndiswrapper

    I think you may be OK.

    Make sure the bcm43xx module is blacklisted
    echo "blacklist bcm43xx" | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist

    blacklist bcm43xx

    Re: hardy ndiswrapper help

    Did you compile ndiswrapper from source or where did you get it?

    Do the following:

    sudo updatedb
    locate ndiswrapper
