Do you know if the Wifi card is _on_?? I know on some Laptops,
there's a specific button / keypress combo that will turn it on..
On My dell it's FN+F2.. It'll just shut-off.. YOu know it cause
if you ping, and you turn it off, it'll just become unrerachable

Just a small update, by the wisdom of Pontus, I found that I was indeed
using the wrong drivers for my card (although the manufacturer of the
laptop listed them as the correct ones..) Anyway, after installing the
correct drivers, dmesg now shows this as the error
ndiswrapper version 0.5+CVS loaded
Unknown symbol: ntoskrnl.exe:_vsnprintf
Unknown symbol: ntoskrnl.exe:_snprintf
Unable to prepare driver
Anyone have any thoughts?

Afraid that didn't help, same error as before (which is even weirder I'd
think...) what do you think that means??

Okay did that, still the same... went right into ndiswrapper/driver and
did insmod ./ndiswrapper.ko and dmesg still has the same result... I did
make clean, checked to make sure the object files were gone, deleted the
.ko module in the correct kernel module directory, did a 'make install'
and still the same. I also doubled checked the sources to make sure the
patches applied and they did. So I'm stumped again...

Maybe 'depmod -a' would help?
