NDISwrapper

Compare

  Analyzed about 12 hours ago

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.
