    Remove it completely:

    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/*
    and reboot. Check:
    Code:
    lsmod

    Try to load the module which is not "in use":

    sudo modprobe -v ssb
