Ndiswrapper headaches

So you tried installing a Windows driver in Linux for your wireless card, but now you want to go back to the Linux driver version only to find that that your card is not showing up in ifconfig/iwconfig, not showing in lshw but showing in lsusb? Then here is your answer:

Uninstall the ndiswrapper driver. (I used the GTK GUI)
Then (and this is the culprit), do a sudo /etc/modprobe.d/ndiswrapper.conf and comment out each line by putting a # in front of them.

All is good again!
