ndiswrapper on ubuntu


i installed ndiswrapper from source.
then i tried to install the windows driver for the wireless card.
ndiswrapper installed the inf ans sys files, but when i do ndsiwrapper -l, it says incorrect driver!

i am 100% sure that these are the correct drivers, because i have used these drivers on a debian system and everything worked smoothly.

this is dmesg output when i plug the card out and in:
[4297149.183000] eth1: hot unplug detected
[4297149.183000] eth1: removing device
[4297149.230000] ACPI: PCI interrupt for device 0000:02:00.0 disabled

hope anyone can help me.
