- What exactly are you having trouble with? Not understanding how to use iwtools, ndiswrapper, etc.?
- Are your wireless drivers installing properly?

- If the only problem is choosing the mode of the device, try:
# iwconfig wlan0 mode managed
# ifconfig wlan0 up && dhcpcd wlan0

Obviously, replace 'wlan0' with the name of your wireless device. You could also try 'auto' as opposed to 'managed' to let iwconfig try to determine the mode.
