However, "iwconfig wlan1 scan" succeeds! :-p
The ndiswrapper module installs, as described in the
previous mail, however 32-bit XP realtek driver is not
compatible with my amd64 system (modprobe ndiswrapper
complains specifically about this). And 'modprobe
ndiswrapper' after setting up the 64-bit XP drivers results
in 'unknown symbol' errors involving NDIS.SYS.
So the final result is success using a native driver.
Thanks to all who helped and who incidentally inhabited the
problem/solution space. :)
