ndiswrapper works 100% for me on an unsecured network. I'm on Ubuntu 9.10
(32-bit) with ndiswrapper 1.56 compiled from source, with the patch for
2907179 applied. The device is a Netgear WG311v3.

If I attempt a wifi connection with WPA-PSK enabled, I see the following error
and no connection is made:

Sep 3 23:45:32 vandelay kernel: ndiswrapper
(NdisMSetInformationComplete:2524): invalid task
Sep 3 23:45:45 vandelay kernel: ndiswrapper
(NdisMSetInformationComplete:2524): invalid task

The driver is definitely there and ndiswrapper is managing the hardware:

bvitale@vandelay:~$ sudo ndiswrapper -l
wg311v3 : driver installed
device (11AB:1FAA) present

bvitale@vandelay:~$ sudo lshw -C Network

Can anyone shed any light on this? Is it an issue with the Windows driver? Is
it an issue with ndiswrapper?

Thanks.
