Summary: NdisWrapper binary loader utility
Ndiswrapper implements the Windows kernel APIs within the Linux kernel.  This
allows you to use a Windows driver for a wireless network card. The driver
runs natively, as though it is in Windows, without binary emulation.  This is
not ideal, but is useful when a vendor does not provide Linux drivers and no
free and open driver exists.

With ndiswrapper, most miniPCI (builtin), PCI, PCMCIA (Cardbus only) or USB
wireless network adapteers work in Linux. Although ndiswrapper is intended for
wireless network cards, other devices are known to work, such as ethernet
cards, USB to serial port device, and home phone network devices.

Note that ndiswrapper is known to cause occational computer lockups.
