here you go....
Install module-assistant and its dependencies:
# apt-get install module-assistant
Now you can start "module-assistant" and select the kernel modules you want, but to save time just follow the guide by typing:
# module-assistant auto-install ndiswrapper
Download and unpack the windows drivers, then type:
ndiswrapper -i /pathto/your/drivers/inf
You should see something like:
Installed ndis drivers:
bcmwl5 driver present, hardware present
Now to insert the module
If there are no errors you should check dmesg to ensure the driver loaded properly.
Which should say
ndiswrapper version V loaded
If all of this is correct and everything loaded correctly then
