I looked into your website and tried to follow the steps. It simply says as below

sudo apt-get install ndiswrapper-utils-1.28

E: Couldn't find package ndiswrapper-utils-1.28

according to synaptic, 1.9 is the latest ver. of ndiswrapper, so you can try adjusting the version number. i just tried pulling it from apt-get and it looks like it is not available for x64

I found ndiswrapper in the following location
/usr/share/doc/ndiswrapper-utils-1.9
I created a directory by name bcm4311 as mentioned at the link
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wi...u%20may%20have

It gave the following steps
user@ubuntu:~/ndiswrapper-1.28$ cd ~
user@ubuntu:~$ mkdir bcm4311
user@ubuntu:~$ mv sp33008.exe bcm4311
user@ubuntu:~$ cd bcm4311
user@ubuntu:~/bcm4311$ cabextract sp33008.exe

I am not finding the file sp33008.exe in step 3
