ipw2100 vs ndis(4) -- does it work for anybody?

Good day,

since the ipw(4) driver can't do WPA, I wanted to give ndis(4) a try.
This *used* to work back on 5.3 (memory is a bit vague) but it ain't
happening on 6.1-RC.

I'm using the same driver as last time, which is the version
from Intel. I also downloaded the newest one, version, but none
of them attach, when loading the if_ndis module.

/sys/modules/if_ndis# make clean
/sys/modules/if_ndis# ndiscvt -i /compat/ndis/w70n51.inf -s /compat/ndis/w70n51.sys -o ndis_driver_data.h
/sys/modules/if_ndis# make
/sys/modules/if_ndis# make install load
/sbin/kldload -v /vol/obj/usr/src/sys/modules/if_ndis/if_ndis.ko
Loaded /vol/obj/usr/src/sys/modules/if_ndis/if_ndis.ko, id=32
pci2: <network> at device 3.0 (no driver attached)

none1 at pci2:3:0: class=0x028000 card=0x25618086 chip=0x10438086 rev=0x04 hdr=0x00
    vendor   = 'Intel Corporation'
    device   = 'Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 2100 LAN Card Driver'
    class    = network

I know this did work in the past. What are other peoples experiences?
Besides, does ndis(4) even do WPA? If not then I would have to buy new
hardware anyway and the whole exercise would be in vain.

Which is worse: ignorance or apathy?
Don't know. Don't care.
