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.

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.
