I installed Ubuntu 6.10.
I installed ndiswrapper and was able to see my card and activate it.
The KDE network manager allowed me to set my essid and wep key.
When I tell it to apply, it goes off and reload and activates / enables my card, but when I run "ifconfig eth0" it shows there is a card, but no IP has been assigned to it.
I used "iwlist eth0 scan" command and it shows my home router.
