just to add, i've installed ndiswrapper-utils-1.9 and it is working!
kernel is 2.6.20-9-generic, now i have wlan0 interface which works

only "bug" is when i want to use ad-hoc mode, my connection last for
about few minutes or sometimes even less that that... tested it few
times, it repeats.

dmesg is pretty ok though...
