Cannot get this device working with ndiswrapper. Using 64bit OS and driver. Completely removed distro (Ubuntu) ndiswrapper (1.53) and installed 1.55.

ant@ubuntu:~$ uname -a
Linux ubuntu 2.6.28-15-generic #52-Ubuntu SMP Wed Sep 9 10:48:52 UTC
2009 x86_64 GNU/Linux
ant@ubuntu:~$ ndiswrapper -v
utils version: '1.9', utils version needed by module: '1.9' module details:
filename:       /lib/modules/2.6.28-15-generic/misc/ndiswrapper.ko
version:        1.55
vermagic:       2.6.28-15-generic SMP mod_unload modversions

Install is fine, can add the driver with no problems. Device shows as being connected but log files show error.

ant@ubuntu:~$ ndiswrapper -l

Device tried on a 32bit latpop & works perfect, modprob ndiswrapper make the light come on & it comes to life. Downloaded drivers multiple times. Booted into Arch Linux quickly and getting very similar behaviour.
