NdisWrapper: The Ultimate Guide

A new la entry has been added:

NdisWrapper: The Ultimate Guide

Here's a comprehensive and idiot-proof guide for utilizing NdisWrapper. It's extracted from Beginning Ubuntu Linux, Second Edition.

The guide is part of Chapter 8, which provides a full guide to hardware configuration under Ubuntu (including network devices, printers, scanners, 3D cards, and more).

In addition to detailing how to install/remove NdisWrapper drivers, this massive 3,500 word guide includes the vital steps of precisely matching the correct driver to the hardware, and then extracting the necessary files from Windows driver archive files. These steps are frequently overlooked by other guides and are a brick wall for many users.

Noticed that for the some of the commands in the code boxes, you have used a character other than minus in the options, which causes the usage information to be displayed instead of the command being parsed:

jb@koji:~$ sudo ndiswrapper l
install/manage Windows drivers for ndiswrapper

usage: ndiswrapper OPTION
-i inffile       install driver described by 'inffile'
-a devid driver  use installed 'driver' for 'devid'
-r driver        remove 'driver'
-l               list installed drivers
-m               write configuration for modprobe
-ma              write module alias configuration for all devices
-mi              write module install configuration for all devices
-v               report version information

where 'devid' is either PCIID or USBID of the form XXXX:XXXX,
as reported by 'lspci -n' or 'lsusb' for the card
