Yes you need a connection to the internet. The

I have answered your other post.

You need a program to get on the internet and
you need to be in the internet to get the program.

Let's come up with a solution to get the files to you.

You can get the package from here:

http://www.linuxpackages.net/search_view.php?by=name&name=ndiswrapper&ver=11.0

You can as root installpkg ndiswrapper.. ... ...

That will install the package. Then use the driver to get
your wireless card going.
