I'm trying to get ndiswrapper to work with this model of hi-gain usb antenna.

The module loads the driver correctly, but when it comes to initialization, the driver reports that it cannot initialize the device (C0000001)

And then:
ndiswrapper:  probe of 4-5:1.0 failed with error -22

Device wlan0 is never created, and hence is not usable.

Any and all help would be appreciated.
