Projects / ndiswrapper


Some vendors refuses to release specs or even a binary Linux driver for their WLAN cards. ndiswrapper tries to solve this by making a kernel module that can load Ndis (Windows network driver API) drivers. The goal is not to implement all of the Ndis API, but to implement the functions needed to get cards without Linux drivers to work.

            Awesome project, works like a charm with my Belkin Card (Broadcom chipset). Why pay money to Linuxant when you can get it for free here?!
