While I cannot give you the exact steps I used to reach a solution, I
do know that at one point this did plague me and now it no longer
does.. I am running ndiswrapper 0.8 on a dell 8600 with the ipw2200.
The steps I took to run ndiswrapper 0.8 are on the wiki (
http://ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net/wiki ) and I will send you the
config file for my kernel so you can see what I have enabled. The
only thing I remember off hand in the kernel config is to enable 4k
stacks and then just the highest level of the wireless. I'm not on my
laptop right now so I can't remember.
