Rather than screw with NDISWrapper, are you using a BroadCom NIC?
There is a native Broadcom driver in F10, but you need to load the 
firmware. There is a utility called b43-fwcutter you would use to do 
this from the Windows driver. In any case, it might be better for you to 
describe your wireless chip and Dell model. Note that NDISWrapper is 
bith a driver (ndiswrapper.ko) as well as a command.  But, in the case 
of Broadcom, it will conflict with the native driver.
