Wireless working on Ubuntu Gutsy

I had wireless up and running on my Ubuntu machine, but after the upgrade to Ubuntu Gutsy it broke.
The problem was that the ndiswrapper module was no longer found.
My first approach was to try and re-install the module. I still had the sources for 1.31 and I just ran 'make'. That failed because the linux-headers were missing.
After installing the linux-headers, there were some errors on compile, so I downloaded the latest ndiswrapper version, compiled and installed with no further problems.

These are the steps that worked for me:
1. uninstall ndiswrapper old version
cd ndiswrapper-1.31/
make uninstall
2. Install the linux-headers
sudo apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r)
3. Download the latest version, compile and install
cd ndiswrapper-1.49
make
(as root)
make install
modprobe ndiswrapper
4. Check if the wireless driver is installed.
I still have the windows drivers from the time when I had gentoo. Download the specific drivers for your card if you don't have them already.
ndiswrapper -l
ndiswrapper -i <driver .inf file> (if '-l' displayd no drivers)
Now I have the wireless interface eth1 (not wlan0) up and running, and the network configuration applet is showing all the available netwoks.

Hope this may be of help to some of you who ran into the same problem.
