Essentially, what you have to do is:
- install ndiswrapper
- ndiswrapper -i <drivername>.inf
  in the expanded Windows driver archive
- unload the kernel's own module for the device
- load the ndiswrapper module
- maybe restart NetworkManager
If everything works, you can blacklist the ath9k module and add
ndiswrapper to /etc/modules to get it automatically loaded.
