Right... I hesitate to call anything that can work "wrong", but
ndiswrapper is an amazing hack that should be avoided if at all possible.

Hint for making sure ndiswrapper is no longer allowed to get a look-in: add

install ndiswrapper /bin/true

to /etc/modprobe.conf, remove everything else in there that mentions
ndiswrapper, and either modprobe -r ndiswrapper or reboot.
