No I do not believe the errors you are receiving are the fault of your 
wireless card.  I have a linksys wpc54g, that was giving me similar 
errors when I was trying to get it to work ... However, I have it 
working now, and it's running smooth, so keep trying you'll get it ... 
If you have questions though about setting it up.  Also you're using 
ifconfig and statically setting everything up.  Does your access-point 
have DHCP if so I would recommend running the dhclient on it to see if 
it will automagically configure everything ... Here are the commands I 
use to get my net connection on my wireless up and running.

# ifconfig ndis0 up // this picks up my access point funny enough
# dhclient ndis0 // this assigns everything else

that should be all there is to it
