NDISwrapper is a project which implements Windows kernel API and NDIS (Network Driver Interface Specification) API within Linux kernel. Wireless network card drives for Windows can be linked to this implementation so that Windows drivers can be run natively, without binary emulation, on Linux kernels.

[edit] Limitations

NDISwrapper only supports Managed and Ad-Hoc modes for the drivers.

It does not support Master (a.k.a "Infrastructure" mode), Repeater, Secondary & Monitor modes.

Thus: If you have a wireless access point you want to connect to then NDISwrapper has value and can help you do that.

If you want to create a access point then you can not use a card which requires you to use NDISwrapper to load Windows drivers. NO.
