  • linux Ndis wrapper for Broadcom & Atheros

    Ok, I've been farting around with getting slack loaded onto my notebook and I found this sourceforge project:

    NdisWrapper

    Some vendors refuses to release specs or even a binary linux-driver for their WLAN cards. This project tries to solve this problem by making a kernel module that can load Ndis (windows network driver API) drivers. We're not trying to implement all of the Ndis API but rather implement the functions needed to get these unsupported cards working.

    http://ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net/

    Here's a report on someone getting it to work:

    I'm still configuring other shit, but they look like an alternative to linuxant drivers.

    I played with this a couple of months ago and it does work...kinda.

    No WEP support (unless it has since been added, I didn't check the link this time). If you are running an open AP with some sort of secondary authentication behind it, it is spiffy.

      On this note, I have been playing with DriverLoader from Linuxant. It is another NDIS wrapper prog that supports WPA. It is spiffy. Unfortunately, it costs $20.00 for the non-trial version, howver since Broadcom has their head up their ass and won't release dick for Linux drivers it is a good choice to ge those TM 1300 and 1400's online without having to use Windows.
