no more success.
I tried with the 0.8 release of ndiswrapper. I copied the function
NdisMAllocateSharedMemory in ndis.c to a function named
NdisMAllocateSharedMemoryAsync and also added this in wrap_entry_func.
A function with this name is called in the windows-driver of the card.
Now the card was activated, as Thomas described.
iwconfig with parameter like essid and key gives an error, and the values are
not set. But if i switch my accesspoint to no-encryption and reload
ndiswrapper, i get a connection. iwconfig shows the essid of my AP and i
could use the card.
So in general the card is usable under linux, but only without encryption.
Maybe someone with more experience than i has an idea, where to go on from
here. I think, using the card without description is not the best:-).
