This might be a Feisty specific bug, NetworkManager will always use
WEXT and not the device specific driver however a number of
distributions patched NetworkManager to use the device specific driver
for some cards.   Two drivers that many Distro's patched for were
NDISwrapper and Madwifi.

I know that Ubuntu used to ship these patches but I don't know if they
still do, can you grab the Ubuntu source (apt-get source
network-manager) and look in the debian/patches directory and see if
one of the patches sends -Dndiswrapper instead of -Dwext?
