My system has two cards one is working with 8139too driver in Redhat5, But the another that i recently bought not working with that tried all options but of no use . i have 8139cp module also in my linux that also didnt work for my new NIC card (Advik Lan card).This second new nic works fine with XP.I tried ndiswrapper also that i configured as wan0 interface ,intrestingly it works but if i remove the lan cable from working first nic, my wan0 (Nic2) not working seems nic2 not using nic cable . Whats the use of ndiswrapper driver ?.
Location: Somewhere inside 9.9 million sq. km. Canada
Distribution: Slackware 14.1, current
Whats the use of ndiswrapper driver ?.
NdisWrapper is not a driver. It is a piece of code to interface between non-linux drivers ( windoze drivers ) and linux. Basically, you run the windoze driver, through Ndiswrapper, instead of a native linux driver. It was written to broaden the number of wireless cards that work with linux. A lot of card makers do not take the time to write linux drivers.
In some cases it is the only way to get some cards to work under linux.
Depending on your network configuration, it could just work, or you may have to do some more configuring. If you need more help, please post the OS you are running, and the output of the above command.
