I have been having problems with ndis as well and ndisgen wroked brilliantly
getting the wireless interface up, but now I can't seem to use my device. . .
The output of ifconfig -a is as follows:
xl0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500

I'm sure it's something very simple I'm not doing - I've been using FreeBSD
for a while and love it, but I'm still rather new :-D
Thanks for your help!

I had similar issues. I had always installed ndis using the options in
the kernel config file, as recommended by man ndis. But as of a week
ago, it wouldn't even compile. But ndisgen worked like a charm.
