Hi, i recently installed Debian-squeeze to multi-boot with vista on a hp desktop. so i have the netgear WNA3100 wifi stick i use on Vista and am trying to get working with debian. i followed the instructions i found on the debian wiki and ubuntu forums. so i got the broadcam drivers for xp and installed them using ndiswrapper on debian. i also installed network-manager and network-manager gnome and its working fine. my main problem is that when i find my router in network-manager, it tries to connect, asks for password, tries to connect and asks for password, repeats this a few times, then doesn't connect. i was wondering what the problem is and how it can be fixed? i put a report of a few commands and relevant infomation as well.

also thank you for any help in advance!

Do you have the drivers that came with it? Take a look at how somebody on UbuntuForums did it (part 2). Its a pretty ugly hack (and actually involves patching ndiswrapper), but it is reported to work. –  new123456 Oct 18 '11 at 10:54
