I'm also having trouble with intrepid and ndiswrapper. My wifi is a
BCM4328 (I'm running it on my appleTV) and for some reason ndiswrapper
can't initialize the device...

this is my lspci:

00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation Mobile 945GM/PM/GMS, 943/940GML and 945GT Express Memory Controller Hub (rev 03)
00:01.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation Mobile 945GM/PM/GMS, 943/940GML and 945GT Express PCI Express Root Port (rev 03)

03:03.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL-8139/8139C/8139C+ (rev 10)

and this is what I get in dmes when loading ndiswrapper:

[ 4965.744660] ndiswrapper version 1.53 loaded (smp=yes, preempt=no)
[ 4965.860223] ndiswrapper: driver bcmwl5 (Broadcom,10/12/2006, loaded

[ 4965.915329] usbcore: registered new interface driver ndiswrapper

this is ndiswrapper -l:
bcmwl5 : driver installed
	device (14E4:4328) present (alternate driver: ssb)

and I successfully blacklisted all modules tha cause problem to this driver: 
blacklist bcm43xx
blacklist ssb
blacklist b44                                                          
blacklist b43
blacklist b43legacy

after blacklisting those, I ran /usr/sbin/update-initramfs to update my
initrd.img file so none of the above would be loaded at boot time by the

none of the above are showing up when I do lsmod.

any ideas?
