I use a Netgear WG511 v2 54Mbps Cardbus adapter on a Vaio notebook with
the latest Windows XP driver from Marvell (mrv833,02/22/2005,188.8.131.52).

When I unload ndiswrapper module I get the following error-message:
ndiswrapper (KeGetCurrentThread:1667): couldn't find thread for task
In earlier releases the module hangs while unloading. Now, the problem
is, that the machine isn't able to go into any acpi powersaving mode.
Sometimes the standby mode is working, but suspend to ram or hibernate
mode fails with a system hang.
My System is Debian unstable with kernel 184.108.40.206 and ndiswrapper
cvs-snapshot (version 1.4rc4).
I have attached the ndiswrapper-buginfo to this mail.
Maybe there is a solution for this problem?

Did it ever work with suspend before? This driver doesn't support
power management (you should see an error message about this at debug
level 2). So this device is completely stopped during suspend and
restarted during resume. Some devices/drivers work with this, but this

Until this is fixed (or a new Windows driver version with power
management is found), you may want to stop interface, unload
ndiswrapper during suspend and load ndiswrapper and start interface
