  1. ndiswrapper should generally be avoided if there is a driver available. If it said it installed the driver, then go to System -> Administration -> Hardware Drivers. If the driver is located there, select it, and click Activate.

    Not guaranteeing it will work, but it's just something to look into.

    Good luck :)
