Question ndiswrapper (link_pe_images:604): DLL initialize failed for athwx.sys


I have a problem trying to setup the Atheros wlan card on a pavilion dv6721la laptop.

The closest I've been from getting it to work is by using netathwx with ndiswrapper. But when it loads, I get this message:

Code:
Jun 26 12:51:32 lina-laptop kernel: [   36.742656] ndiswrapper (link_pe_images:576): fixing KI_USER_SHARED_DATA address in the driver

Jun 26 12:51:32 lina-laptop kernel: [   36.749088] usbcore: registered new interface driver ndiswrapper
Any idea?

from lspci:
03:00.0 Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR242x 802.11abg Wireless PCI Express Adapter (rev 01)

And I'm working on kubuntu hardy.
