    the driver is in the repo now
    if you dint install ndiswrapper then skip steps 2,3,4
    1.Update & upgrade using update-manager/synaptic/adept etc
    2.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get remove ndisgtk ndiswrapper-common ndiswrapper-utils-1.9
    3. Remove the ndiswrapper line from /etc/modules
    4. Disable wireless from the network manager applet and then

    Code:
    sudo modprobe -r ndiswrapper
    If it cribs about module being in use, it means you have not disabled wireless
    5. Restart, if there were any kernel upgrades
    6. System->Administration->Hardware Drivers
    I see a wl driver here. Make sure it says enabled and is in use.

    worked for me with dell 1395 on inspiron 1525
