NetworkManager doesn't connect (ndiswrapper and


I have here Dell Inspiron 2200 with this internal wifi card:

02:03.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4318 
[AirForce One 54g]
802.11g Wireless LAN Controller (rev 02)
        Subsystem: Dell Unknown device 0005
        Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 64, IRQ 5
        Memory at dfdfe000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=8K]

So I have to use ndiswrapper (currently 1.18 with kernel -- vanilla kernel just with suspend2 patch) and it uses 
bcmwl5 driver.

The distribution is Debian/testing (nm 0.6.3-1) and when trying 
to connect with network-manager (using KDE, so through 
knetworkmanager), I get attached stuff in /var/log/syslog.

When using just plain ifup just with this configuration (no WPA 
is necessary):

iface wlan0 inet dhcp
   hostname chelcicky
   wireless_essid ceplovi
   up /usr/local/sbin/setsmtp

then everything works perfectly well without any problems and 
network is up on the first try. I am not sure whether I need to 
set hostname at all. And this is my current dhcp lease:

lease {
  interface "wlan0";
  option subnet-mask;
  option routers;
  option dhcp-lease-time 3600;
  option dhcp-message-type 5;
  option domain-name-servers,;
  option dhcp-server-identifier;
  option broadcast-address;
  option domain-name "vysocina";
  renew 4 2006/6/29 03:15:25;
  rebind 4 2006/6/29 03:40:08;
  expire 4 2006/6/29 03:47:38;

Any ideas, what's wrong with my configuration, or is it a bug in

He uses statistics as a drunken man uses lamp-posts... for

A bird in the hand makes it awfully hard to blow your nose.
