I had sooooo many problems with ndiswrapper on my Debian laptop. I could not, for the life of me, install it and make it work. In the end, I downloaded a SUSE rpm and used alien to convert it to a deb file. I did dpkg - newdebfile and ndiswrapper worked a treat. I don't know how much sense this will make to you but I am happy to guide you through what I did to see if it works for you.

There's a newer (prerelease) version of 1.2 available here, maybe give that a shot? Or see the unoffical Ubuntu guide to add more repositories for apt-get.

You need to install your kernel sources to be able to compile ndiswrapper. Hope it helps.

0. Before you start, clear out any mess from existing failed attempts to use ndiswrapper.
just delete dirs containing ndiswrapper?
