Source for the ndiswrapper Linux kernel module

Some vendors do not release specifications of the hardware or provide a Linux driver for their wireless network cards. This project implements Windows kernel API and NDIS (Network Driver Interface Specification) API within Linux kernel. A Windows driver for wireless network card is then linked to this implementation so that the driver runs natively, as though it is in Windows, without binary emulation.

This package provides the source code for the ndiswrapper kernel module. If you use a standard distribution kernel, you mostly will not need this, but use the pre-compiled modules instead.

Package version:1.53-2


ndiswrapper for Debian

This package provides the ndiswrapper source code and binaries that can be used
to build modules that work with your custom built linux kernel. The source
files are located in /usr/src/ndiswrapper.tar.bz2; unpacking that file in
/usr/src will produce a build tree in /usr/src/modules/ndiswrapper/
(The tar file can also be unpacked elsewhere).

  wpa_supplicant. The 'wext' driver option must be used instead of
  'ndiswrapper'. For example:

    wpa_supplicant -D wext -i wlan0 -c /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf

  When using wpa_supplicant via /etc/network/interfaces, it is suggested to use
  the 'wpa-driver wext'
