A few things here, that method is no longer required and has been obsoleted.

Bill has hooked the ndisulator into ifconfig.

So, as a start, please make _sure_ you have the latest ndis sources.

Also one thing seems odd to me:

> ndis0: 11b rates: 1Mbps 2Mbps 5.5Mbps 11Mbps

You should be getting rates reported as:

Jan 21 22:09:14 peach kernel: bcm0: 11b rates: 1Mbps 2Mbps 5.5Mbps 11Mbps
Jan 21 22:09:14 peach kernel: bcm0: 11g rates: 6Mbps 9Mbps 12Mbps 18Mbps 36Mbps 48Mbps 54Mbps

Also, an IRQ of ii dosn't seem quite right :)

Double check that you have used the CORRECT drive from Dell's site, you want the
XP drivers which are in the _parent_ directory after you have unzipped the EXE.

After this, if it _still_ dosn't work, repond to the list and i'll walk you
through some debugging procedures.

Also, what model is this laptop?
