    Wifi adapter lost after installing ndiswrapper

    Hey guys after endless searching google and forums I hope to get help here. But first of hello to all and thanks in advance.

    Now to my problem;

    I installed on my Laptop Acer Aspire 5750G running Ubuntu Linux 12.04 Lts ndiswrapper through Ubuntu Software Center. After installation I installed through gui an Windows wireless driver which I used in Windows 7 x64 same notebook. After installation it showed up in ndiswrapper hardware found: yes.

    Atheros Wireless Adapter AR9287

    But!!!

    I lost actually my wifi adapter, which means there is no possibility to reach my wifi adapter or to connect to wirless lan. I can only plug a cable to my computer to get Internet access.

    So again what happened to my computer? I removed diswrapper but could not get the previous configuration back.

    No I´m whithout any clue or idea what to do!

    Thanks guys quite a lat for any help you can provide.

    He has Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin , not 10.04 Lucid Lynx.

    I suggest

    1) First remove completely the ndiswrapper .
    Code:
    sudo modprobe -rf ndiswrapper 
    sudo apt-get remove --purge ndiswrapper-common ndiswrapper-utils-1.9 ndisgtk 
    sudo rm /etc/modprobe.d/ndiswrapper.conf 
    sudo rm -r /etc/ndiswrapper/*  
    sudo depmod -a
    Reboot your PC
    Then give the results* of bellow commands

    Code:
    lspci -nnk | grep -iA2 net 
    lsmod 
    ifconfig 
    nmcli nm status
    rfkill list all
    nm-tool
    *Put the results between the brackets [code]Here[/code].

    Thanks
