My wireless card can't pick up the signal from my router which is in the same room.  After installing ndiswrapper, it doesn't seem to be running my card because I still get errors from the kernel that say bcm43xx, which is the driver I do not want to use because it doesn't support my card.  Also, when I do ndiswrapper -m it says that it's making an alias for wlan0, but my wireless interface is named eth1.  Any advice on how to get wireless is appreciated.  Please be thorough as I am a novice linux user (it's been about a week).
