I also have this issue.
Comment 2 Daniel Moree 2007-06-06 14:52:03 EDT
Same here, I've also experienced this same thing with the BCM43xx_mac80211
module with my Broadcom card. Have tested this using the BCM43xx_mac80211 module
with an intel wireless card and Network manager works fine. Seems isolated to
ndiswrapper and broadcom cards on bcm43xx_mac80211

Same problem for me using bcm43xx_mac80211 and ndiswrapper.

bcm43xx_mac80211 syslog NetworkManager cutting attached.

same problems here... 
i also have a bcm4318 chip.. with fc6 everything worked fine with ndiswrapper
Comment 5 Klaus Möllenhoff 2007-06-10 05:54:45 EDT
with new ndiswrapper from livna it works
Comment 6 Martin Jürgens 2007-06-10 06:37:42 EDT
great! maybe the bcm43xx-mac80211 issue is a driver problem, also and we shall
report a bug against the kernel.

i, personally, can't connect with wlassistant, either.
Comment 7 Daniel Moree 2007-06-10 12:47:17 EDT
I will confirm what Klaus said. I have downloaded the latest update of
ndiswrapper from livna, previously v1.43, now v1.46, does work with Network Manager.
