Yes, ndiswrapper -l shows:

Installed ndis drivers:
bcmwl5          driver present, hardware present

Yes, the scan shows that it sees 4 wireless networks, including mine.

Yes, it is broadcasting the essid. 
I do have MAC filtering on, but my wireless cards MAC address is in the
list to allow. I guess I could shut it off to rule it out. Same thing
with MAC filtering off. Never see a connection on the router.

I'll give this a look. I really don't want to use DHCP though. It's
turned off on my wireless router and is provided by another box on the
network. Should still work, but I get DHCP discover failures on my
wireless router, so that could be another obstacle. I do have another
machine running Windows XP connected with wireless, so I know it is
functioning. That machine also has a static address assigned. 

Thanks,
James
