    I receive from ml:

    ...

    http://www.usr.com/support/5421a/5421a-
    files/5421-v6.01.19.10x64.exe

    That's a Vista driver (NDIS 6). ndiswrapper only works with Windows XP
    and older drivers.

    can you help me?

    No. I suggest that you use the rndis_wlan driver from the Linux kernel.
