Which wireless card
Please also attach "dmesg" output after the segmentation fault.

Comment 2 Andrew Marshall 2004-05-22 15:12:13 UTC
The wireless card is an Intel Truemobile 1300, as installed on a Dell
Inspiron 8600.

lspci -v reports the following information

02:03.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM94306 802.11g (rev 02)
        Subsystem: Dell Computer Corporation TrueMobile 1300 WLAN
Mini-PCI Card
        Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 32, IRQ 7
        Memory at faff6000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable)
        Capabilities: [40] Power Management version 2

The driver is ndiswrapper-0.7

Unfortunately I cannot attach dmesg information as the system becomes
unresponsive after seg faulting.
