Thanks, this did the trick - it turned out that my laptop does not have
a 2200BG adapter. I must have confused it with another Acer laptop that
I bought and configured for my friend a while ago. pciconf says:
none6 at pci1:2:0: class=0x028000 card=0x1220185f chip=0x432014e4
vendor = 'Broadcom Corporation'
device = 'BCM4306 802.11b/g Wireless LAN Controller'
class = network
so it has the non-supported Broadcom adapter. So sorry for all the noise :)
Google gave hope to get it working with the NDIS wrapper, and sure,
after fighting with it a while, I have a ndis0 adapter now detected.
was of good help - although the info there is outdated for 6.0 - one
should use ndisgen instead.
