Wireless is a new animal for me.. :-)  & I can't pretend there is a
fault with the wire or at other end :-)  [anyway...] my wireless is
**not** working even though there is wireless signal.

"dmesg" shows following...
=====================
ndiswrapper version 1.21 loaded (preempt=no,smp=yes)
ndiswrapper: driver bcmwl5 (Broadcom,11/02/2005, 4.10.40.0) loaded
ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:05:00.0[A] -> GSI 18 (level, low) -> IRQ 19

=====================

So I think there is problem that I need to fix...

Any idea what could be wrong...?

I have kept settings as what came on default i.e. "Managed" mode and essid "any"
There are bunch of other things which are left blank under wireless
tab.  TCP/IP setting are done and are *said* to be correct.

Thanks in advance...
