1. dmesg results seem to be good:
[ 14.270854] ndiswrapper version 1.53 loaded (smp=yes, preempt=no)
[ 14.358992] ndiswrapper: driver net5211 (,11/15/2006,188.8.131.52) loaded

2. ifconfig seems more like you described. Entries only for eth0, lo and
wlan0. wlan0 looks like this:
wlan0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:0e:9b:cf:bc:0c
