    Try going into the /etc/ndiswrapper folder and deleting the files that are giving the errors. You will need to be root to do this.

    I would give this driver one more try, then I would start to look for a different Windows driver. The NDISwrapper supported cards list may have other cards with the same chipset listed. Try the driver that they used.
    NDISwrapper

    You also need to remove the Linux driver before you can use NDISwrapper.
    Code:
    modprobe -r ath_pci
    The name of your diver may be different.

    Are you using the 64-bit version of Ubuntu? If so, you need to use a 64-bit Windows driver

    Here is an installation guide for the card in Ubuntu. They use the same driver that I pointed you to, but there is also a link for the 64-bit version.

    That's right, Ubuntu has eliminated root. That's one of the things that I dislike about it.

    You can perform tasks with root privileges with the sudo prefex. To start a file manager with root privileges, enter this.
    Code:
    sudo nautilus
    Just be careful. As root you can accidently make bad changed too!

    I'm not sure why it won't work, especially when others have reported success.

    I see that I forgot to post the link to the Ubuntu installation guide that I found.
