Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: madwifi-tools

I have an LG LGR40 (R-400M) laptop with a network card that I can only
get to work with ndiswrapper using the driver net5211. In Hardy Heron,
it worked almost flawlessly---I could not get it to work with anything
other than an open system on my home router---but when I upgraded to
Jaunty, it stopped working.

It detects all available networks, and I am able to use NetworkManager
to connect to my own network. However, when I try to actually use the
connection, it does not work at all. The only way  have found to get a
working connection is to suspend to RAM and then resume.

On a perhaps related note, it completely fails to connect to local hosts
using their host names. If I type:

ping <host>
PING <host> ( 56(84) bytes of data.
WARNING: kernel is not very fresh, upgrade is recommended.

It does however work if I ping
