You know, i had the same problem for about a month now, but just today i
managed to get it working.
> kernel-2.6.5, ndiswrapper 0.8
The laptop i got (Medion RAM2010, think it's only sold in northern
Europe) is fairly "bloated", it got alot of fancy stuff i'll never use.
This again cause many of the devices to share IRQ and in my case, this
was the problem. Few hours ago someone wrote on this list that acpi in
the kernel was bugged in some or other way, and that it was fixed in
2.6.7. It really was fixed :)
So, get the latest kernel :)

I'm using the drivers on the cd i got from Medion. Works here :)
> Installed ndis drivers:
> bcmwl5 present
Hmm, i'm using "bcmwl5a"... On the other hand i'm sure i did use
"bcmwl5" earlier, but i can't even get "present" if i try to use it
now... It's possible that i remember wrong :)
Although, the best hint i can give is to get the latest kernel. It
solved the problem in my case.
Dunno if you know, but you can scan after AP's with "iwlist wlan0 scan".
Oh, i'm atm also using version 0.7 as the cvs version won't compile and
neither will 0.8(?). Even though people will react on this: try version
