my wifi device is realtek 8723ae

there's some small bug in offical linux driver . so I try to use ndiswrapper instead.

I emerge it , add it into /etc/conf.d/modules. and ndiswrapper -i ***.inf.
and I don't select its offical driver in kernel

Code:

lspci -m | grep 8723
04:00.0 "Network controller" "Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd." "RTL8723AE PCIe Wireless Network Adapter" "Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd." "Device 0726"


Code:

$ dmesg |grep 8723
[    0.216780] pci 0000:04:00.0: [10ec:8723] type 00 class 0x028000
[    4.220837] usb 3-7: New USB device found, idVendor=0bda, idProduct=8723


Code:

ndiswrapper -l
netrtwlane : driver installed
   device (10EC:8723) present



Code:
lsmod
Module                  Size  Used by
ndiswrapper           228254  0


Code:

ndiswrapper -a 10ec:8723  netrtwlane
Driver 'netrtwlane' is already used for '10EC:8723'

and ifconfig doesn't print wlan0;
how to solve?
is this because ndiswrapper doesn't support my wifi card temporarily?
