Whats this Lie-nix Thing?

I'm having the exact same problem. I finally got the driver working (using ndiswrapper), and can get the wlan0 showing the correct essid, encryption key, etc. But I cannot connect to my residential gateway (Actiontec wg701). I tried installing kwifimanager to see if that would help at all, but being new to linux, I can't get it successfully installed. Having to shut down and boot into windows in order to search for answers, then boot back into linux to test, then back into windows when things don't work... its getting really frustrating, and I'm about to give up on linux unless i can get this figured out soon. Having a laptop without wireless access is worthless to me.

I'm on a HP ze5570 laptop with a Broadcom MaxPerformance wireless g pcmcia (BCM94306) card installed. I'm trying to connect to an actiontec residential gateway that works great with windows, but can't figure out hw to configure it to work with linux. I have installed ndiswrapper v 1.0 to use the native XP driver that came with my installation of XP.

ANY help would be appreciated, especially any tips on how to configure wireless cards or any specific information I need to do so in Mandrake 10.1 Official.
