[CS-FSLUG] wireless woes

Hi all.

I put a wireless nic in my desktop running kubuntu 7.04. I am using 
ndiswrapper and the card shows at wlan0 but there is something wrong.

The problem is I cannot connect to my network. I am using 128 bit encryption 
and when I use a passphrase or hex it will not connect, but if I turn off the 
encryption on the router everything works fine.

Also, everything works fine under windows, with and without encryption.

 I've been working on this for 3 days. I've considered ipv6 being on, i've 
considered the fact the card is  an 802.11b and the router is 802.11G but I 
have the router set so b and G both can use it. Also that shouldn't be a 
problem since everything works flawlessly under windows.

What am I missing?
