    Try to remove the module ath_pci to let ndiswrapper to use the wifi.
    "sudo rmmod ath_pci" or "sudo modprobe -r ath_pci"

    also try put that module in the blacklist of modprobe to avoid his
    loading on the startup:

    sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-common

    Insert this line:
    blacklist ath_pci

    Then restart.
    When u will boot again.
    Load the windows driver it from the uncompress folder:
    #ndiswrapper -i net5211.inf
    then install to modprobe
    #ndiswrapper -m


    root@eric-laptop:~# ndiswrapper -i net5211.inf
    Installing net5211
    couldn't copy net5211.inf at /usr/sbin/ndiswrapper-1.8 line 144.

    What's the deal?

    "ndiswrapper -i" requires either the full pathname, or else
    to be executed in the directory with the .inf file

    Well I extracted all of the driver files to my desktop.

    I don't think that is the problem but i'll check.

    Have you looked at line 144 to see what it is choking on? It may shed some light on the problem.
