NDISWRAPPER is a loan application for M$Windows drivers, borrowed to run under GNU/Linux system. This frequently happens when the user is enticed to buying hardware sold by close-minded manufacturer who only supports Microsoft and other proprietary systems but does not provide modules for open source systems. One notorious brand is Broadcom. I have personal hatred to this brand, I spent two weeks of hacking to make my Dell laptop use its wireless Iface without capitulating to Ndiswrapping, and swore to buy no more anything that has their interface or device.

In your case you will need a little pulling up your sleeves and begin working. Try these links:

The philosophy is simple: Look for the M$Window's driver and extract its library/whatsoever and wrap it to run under CentOS. But I have never vowed borrowing anything from M$ this way, ever.

I wish you luck. And may you have an enjoyable hack.

This site may be of some use

I can't find any direct answer to your problem: Intex products are apparently only used in India, which cuts down the number of people in your situation.
