    I used successfully ndiswrapper v0.10 with bcmwl5 driver (linksys wmp54g pci card) on Suse 9.1 Pro and I updated to v0.11 keeping same wifi parameters than before :
    Managed mode with restricted access, four 128 bits WEP keys with first key as default key.
    wireless tools version is 27pre12-35 (original Suse 9.1)

    Whenever I set up wlan0 device I get the following errors messages :

    ERROR: command 'iwconfig wlan0
    key 0E2373B7FDF5B73280B3BC0624 [1]
    key 4EF62000AB52E41C27D238F76A [2]
    key 160F981D2905746B24F2E2F698 [3]
    key 0D8C05C416C60C05F9AE24040C [4]' returned
    Error for wireless request "Set Encode" (8B2A) :
    SET failed on device wlan0 ; Invalid argument.
    ERROR: setting encryption key FAILED, aborting interface setup

    So, I tried to enter manually these parameters, one at a time. iwconfig command accepts index key 1,2,3 and rejects the last one :

    iwconfig wlan0 key 0D8C05C416C60C05F9AE24040C [4]
    Error for wireless request "Set Encode" (8B2A) :
    SET failed on device wlan0 ; Invalid argument.
