ndiswrapper is a pain ... sometimes it works .. sometimes it doesnt
"works" == it can ping/ssh the outside wired world

what is the chipset ?? ( run lspci )
- all manufacturers tend to change chipset on the
same model they are selling ( sometiems they put in little
hints things like version 1, version 2, sometimes and usually not)
for list of supported hw ... see what hw is at your local
pc store or your buddy's working wireless linux pc or your fav online
-- look at the hw list of that driver
i use netgear wg311 (unmarked) for 802.11g .. w/ madwifi cards
newer wg311 (v2 on the box only) uses the (worthless) ti chipset
