Secondly, left click on the networking icon next to your clock and see if network manager sees any wireless signals. I didn't do this and even though I had everything installed right, the simple interface was too far above me to think about. Wasted weeks trying to figure out why it was installed but not connected (just needed to be told which router to connect to). One of my stupid mistakes.
ndiswrapper -l shows what i believe i included in the first post.
Driver installed, Device present
and it is installed, and connected to the router AT LEAST. it sends/receives packets, but i cant use any programs to use the internet; however, i installed and logged into steams without any problems...
