It seems to work on my computer as well now (it works if you get this 
email :) ). I have only one configuration problem. If I try to automize 
the process, then, following the instructions in the Readme-file, I get 
an error message when typing

poincare:/usr/ndiswrapper/utils # depmod -a
depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in 

However, when I load this driver manually (using insmod), then it works. 
Maybe I do a general mistake.

Also, what does not work, is the following: If I boot with the usual 
Ethernet-Cable plugged in (usual LAN), configure the wlan until it seems 
to work, and plug out the Ethernet cable, then the addresses do not 
resolve, i.e. I canīt use the wlan really. On the other hand, if I boot 
with the lan-cable plugged out and do the same procedure, then it works.

Do you have an idea how to solve this problem? Is there any possibility 
to "restart" the whole network as during the boot-time?

Bests and many thanks,
