User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041111 Firefox/1.0

Description of problem:
When I upgrade from 667 to a higher version of the Fedora 3 kernel, it no longer sees my Linksys card I have at wlan0.  I type iwconfig and nothing is there.  I currently use ndiswrapper for the driver.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Setup the card on the 667 kernel using ndiswrapper
2.  Upgrade the kernel to either of the two newer versions
3.  Card is no longer recognized by OS

Expected Results:  I would expect the card configuration to stay the same through a minor kernel upgrade.

Assigning to wireless-tools.

You probably have to rebuild your ndiswrapper modules, etc. Note that those
modules aren't shipped with Fedora, are binary only, and aren't supported.
