Thanks Jerry, Axel,

I'm going to look into the native drivers rather than ndiswrappers. Even though I finally got the ndiswrapper rpm's to install I prefer this idea.

The laptop is a Dell Vostro 1510, and lspci gives:

06:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g (rev 01)
That's what I thought. Take a look at what dmesg tells you. It will probably recognize the chip and then complain about the firmware. In this case, you would need b43-fwcutter to extract the firmware from the Windows .sys file, and (with the appropriate options) drop it into /lib/modules. I've done this on my laptop when it was running SuSE and now runs Ubuntu.
