I found a method to make working wireless adapter without using ndiswrapper.
The idea is to use the airmon-ng tool from the aricrack-ng suite. This tool creates a new network interface "monitor enable". Also, it should works whit all aircrack-ng supported cards (http://www.aircrack-ng.org/doku.php?id=install_drivers some cards/dongle need to be patched).
I make working a U.S. Robotics 805422 and iwl4965 (patched).

First you have to be sure that your wifi adapter is working.

(this and the other commands may have to be runned as root user).
Should show you all your interfaces, and give extra informations for those with wifi exstension.
Here is an example of iwconfig output:

lo        no wireless extensions.

eth0      no wireless extensions.

wmaster1  no wireless extensions.

wlan2     IEEE 802.11bg  ESSID:"" 
          Mode:Managed  Frequency:2.412 GHz  Access Point: Not-Associated   
          Tx-Power=27 dBm   
          Retry min limit:7   RTS thr:off   Fragment thr:off
          Encryption key:off
          Power Management:off
          Link Quality:0  Signal level:0  Noise level:0
          Rx invalid nwid:0  Rx invalid crypt:0  Rx invalid frag:0
          Tx excessive retries:0  Invalid misc:0   Missed beacon:0

(in this example our adapter is wlan2).
WARNING: If you use two wifi adapter (one for internet and one for psp) you should see both here.

Now we need the aircrack-ng suite. How to install depends on your distro, on debian based this should works:
 apt-get install aircrack-ng

(as root user)

Then launch airmon-ng.

Should see something like this:
Interface   Chipset      Driver

wlan2      PrismGT    p54usb - [phy1]

Now we have to create the new interface "monitor enabled".
arimon-ng start wlanX

where X is your interface name.
After that you should have a new interface named mon0.
Use this interfaces as explained in this tutorial(http://www.teamxlink.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=35600) starting from part A.
If you don't want to use Network Manager, from the shell as root user:

ifconfig mon0 down
iwconfig mon0 mode Ad-Hoc
iwconfig mon0 essid YOUR_PSP_GAME_SSID
ifconfig mon0 up

and then configure mon0 as your sniffing interfaces in the kai engine config.

(Was tested on Gentoo but should works with all distro)
Hope this helps.
I really appreciate every comments and success/unsuccess reports.
Sorry for the bad english.

Hum, I tried : all steps for the monitoring mode are working but then i get the error "No network interfaces were detected" (it was working before i tried to use the monitoring mode).

So i can't launch xlink kai x) Any ideas ?

EDIT: I found you must launch xlink kai in root mode (sudo). After that i can't see any player my driver is zd1211rw. Do you think I must patch it ?

EDIT2: okay, here are my results.

I patched the driver, and do the same as you wrote... I see the connection between the usb thingy and my psp (with iwconfig).
But like before, when i enter a room, i can't see anyone (how frustrating xD).
So, back to the same situation : usb wifi is a bluestork BS-W-USB (and not WG wich seems to be a new version).
