  You can't even set your essid, right?
With ndiswrapper you're at the mercy of your vendor's
drivers.  Unless you've got GOOD 64-bit drivers it's
not going to play.
  I just went through this. Not being a skilled hacker,
I did the troubleshooting thing, swapping out Live CD's
and wireless cards - the winning combination was an
atheros-based Belkin card and the rr64 DVD (gentoo-
based of course!).
  And I think the reasons were:
1) An OLDER version of madwifi (pre-1.2)
2) No acpi support.
 And 'hi" to the list from the new guy!
