Quote:
Works with Relatek binary drivers for Windows and ndiswrapper, but requires a small modification to the PCI ID in NET8180.INF. Refer to this page for more details. Note that at least with 2.6 kernel the orginal D-Link Windows driver that comes with the card has serious problems and may cause a system restart.

Seems this card comes with 2 different chipsets. One is marvel based. The other is atheros based. The lspci command should tell which it uses.
