  • pciid: 17fe:2120
  • Driver: ndis 1.1-4 w packaged WinXP driver and kernel 2.6.11 on Debian unstable
  • Other: Truckstop.net is currently in litigation so the cards can be had for $10. The driver can be had from http://www.truckstop.net/support/C130-Driver.zip. lspci reports: Ethernet controller: Linksys, A Division of Cisco Systems: Unknown device 2120. I originally spotted this one on a support list for ndis under the Linksys brand.
  • Other:Works great with the linksys driver found here: ftp://ftp.linksys.com/pub/network/wmp11_v4_dr.zip, with the LSIPNDS.inf file.
  1. Card: Intel(R) PRO/Wireless LAN 2100 3A Mini PCI Adapter
  • pciid: 104c:8029
  • Other: You need both of those drivers. I actually just got those files from my Windows XP machine in c:\windows\DELL\drivers\R64838\Drivers\WINXP\. Tested on Slackware 10.1 with kernel 2.4.29, ndiswrapper 1.1, with WEP on a Dell Inspiron 510m Pentium M Centrino (i686). Works great. What is wierd is that in Windows XP it says that my card is a 2100 3A, but in linux it says that it is a 2100 3B when i run “lspci”.
  1. Card: Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG
  1. Card: Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG
  • Driver: version 11.1.1.0 driver netw4v32.inf (from the intel web site) seemed to work fine but it turned out to be a dud. The Dell driver for the Dell Latitude D630 (http://ftp.us.dell.com/network/R164255.EXE) also has netw4v32.inf and this one worked on my Dell Latitude D630 - go figure.
  • Other: both drivers were evaluated on debian etch - wpa_supplicant didn’t seem to work, even with the Dell driver but WEP worked
  • pciid: 8086:4222
  • Driver: version 10.1.0.13 http://www.intel.com/support/wireless/wlan/sb/cs-010623.htm (w39n51.inf, unfortunatly the download is 80MB because it’s packaged with “Intel PROset/Wireless software”, and drivers for the 2200BG and 2915ABG).
  • Other: Tested on Gentoo Linux, with gentoo patched kernel 2.6.15-r1 (SMP hasn’t been tested yet, I had some problems with it, so reverted to non-SMP). You need to patch your kernel to use 16K Stacks (rather than the default 8K). Patches can be found via LinuxAnt. I found mine at http://www.linuxant.com/driverloader/wlan/downloads-patches.php.
  1. Card: I-O Data WN-B11/USBSL
  • usbid: 04bb:0924
  • Driver: Use the WindowsXP driver from the CD that comes with the card.
  • Other: Works with ndiswrapper 1.1 and kernel 2.6.8-24.10. I couldn’t get the card to work with ndiswrapper 1.2, but perhaps this is because I have an older version of Wireless Tools.

  1. Card: Jensen Scandinavia 6511 WLAN Mini USB Dongle
    • Chipset: SiS 162u
    • usbid: 0457:0162
    • Driver: Tested with version 1.0.5 from http://www.sis.com/download/ but it probably works with the 1.0.4 version as well as the CD version.
    • Other: Support for chipset was added in ‘ndiswrapper version 1.4‘, released 2005-10-06
  2. Card: Jensen Scandinavia Air:Link 6011 (PCMCIA)
    • Chipset: Realtek RTL8180L (rev 20)
    • pciid: 10ec:8180
    • Driver: Tested with various of the realtek drivers. Didn’t work with any but the version 154 driver from 2003 (card didn’t power up). It’s getting hard to get ahold of so I’ve mirrored the driver at http://zarb.org/~zerodogg/mirrored/winxp-8180(154).zip

  1. Card: LevelOne WNC-0300
    • pciid: 168c:0013 subsys: 16ab:7302
    • Chipset: Atheros
    • Driver: from CD that comes with the card, version 2.1.3.1 (use the Win2000 driver)
    • Other: Driver for use with ndiswrapper is prepackaged in Ark Linux – Ark Linux users simply “apt-get install driver-atheros”.
    • Other: The card seems to take very long to initialize; took about a minute to find the access point after “modprobe ndiswrapper”. Works well afterwards.
    • Other: A native driver is available at http://madwifi.sourceforge.net/, but so far I haven’t had any luck with that (doesn’t compile with 4k stacks enabled)
  2. Card: LevelOne WNC-0301
    • pciid: 11ab:1fa6 subsys: 16ab:1fa6
    • Chipset: Marvell Libertas
    • Driver: from CD that comes with the card, version 2.3.0.3
    • Other: Driver for use with ndiswrapper is prepackaged in Ark Linux – Ark Linux users simply “apt-get install

driver-marvell”.

  1. Card: LevelOne WNC-0301USB v3
    • usbid: 148F:2573
    • Chipset: rt73
    • Driver: from CD that comes with the card, (LevelOne,11/03/2005, 1.00.01.0000)
  2. Card: Linksys @Home #HP200 Wireless-G
    • Chipset: Marvell 88w8335 Libertas Rev. 03
    • pciid: 11ab:1faa subsys: 1737:0047
    • Driver: From product CD
    • Other: Tested with Gentoo, works okay with WEP and TKIP. I originally tried other Marvell drivers (from 3com site) which caused a kernel panic.
  3. Card: Linksys WMP11 v2.7 802.11b
    • Chipset: Broadcom BCM4301
    • Driver: Downloaded Windows 2000 driver from Compaq site. FilenameSP28538.exe.
    • Other: Mandrake 10.1 with 2.6.8.1 kernel. NdisWrapper 0.90 built and installed. Use bcmwl5.inf. If you’re having trouble getting card into Managed mode, put it auto mode first, then change to managed.
  4. Card: Linksys WMP11 v2.7 802.11b
    • ndiswrapper version: 0.8
    • Chipset: Broadcom Corporation BCM4301 802.11b (rev 02)
    • pciid: 14e4:4301
    • Driver: Version 3.8.28.0, Release Date: 11/15/02 from http://www.linksys.com ownloads
    • Other: Knoppix Linux 3.7 (2.4.27). Interface doesn’t always come up, but easily fixed by root command ifup wlan0
  5. Card: Linksys WMP11 v4 802.11b
    • Chipset: InProComm? ?
    • pciid: 17fe:2120
    • Other: Debian Unstable/Sid with NdisWrapper 0.11. You must install all three inf files from the driver zip file (I had to force NDIS to load all three drivers for the one card with the -d option on each inf). Card works great, but WEP is untested. Works great on Slackware 10.1 with a 2.6.10 kernel, and Ubuntu Breezy using the latest version of NdisWrapper.
    • Fedora Core 5, Kernel 2.6.15-1.2054_FC5, works fine with ndiswrapper 1.13, I only needed the LSIPNDS.INF file. I added the line “‘alias wlan0 ndiswrapper‘” to the /etc/modprobe.conf file so that the network configuration gui would pick it up. Once I applied DNS, IP, Gate, Mask, ESSID, I was running wide open. These are good inexpensive cards at any WalMart in USA.
  6. Card: Linksys WMP300N-DE Wireless-N PCI Adapter
    • Chipset: Atheros AR5008
    • pciid: 168c:0023
    • Driver: Linksys AR5416 Linksys Box CD Ver. 1.05
    • Driver Version: 6.0.0.160
    • openSUSE Linux v 10.1, Kernel Version 2.6.16.27-0.9-bigsmp
    • ndiswrapper: ndiswrapper-1.10-19
    • That did it for me. Card works like a charm with ndiswrapper. Good luck.
  7. Card: Linksys WMP300N Wireless-N PCI Adapter
  8. Card: Linksys WMP300N Wireless-N PCI Adapter
    • Chipset: Broadcom Corporation BCM94321MP, 802.11b/g/Draft n
    • pciid: 14e4:4329, reported by lspci as Broadcom BCM43XG Rev. 1, but according to bcmwl5.inf, it should be BCM43XNG
    • Driver: Linksys WMP300N_20061117_dr.exe
    • Driver version: 4.100.15.5
    • Fedora Core 6, x86-64, kernel 2.6.18-1.2849.fc6-x86_64
    • ndiswrapper: ndiswrapper-1.31. 1.28rc2 works also
    • Note: other Broadcom draft n drivers, such as the Dell and others do not work. They appear to support a device 14e4:4328 but not 4329. Only the newest Linksys driver supports 64 bit. Previous one did not. According to iwconfig, getting speeds in the 200 Mbit/s range, even with tx power turned down to 10dBm.
    • As far as I can tell, draft N actually works.
    • ‘This version of the driver also fixes a rootkit exploit’ see: http://blogs.zdnet.com/Ou/?p=365
    • For older BCM cards, the file bcmwl5.inf does not contain the required data although I suspect the drivers themselves do. Other manufacturers such as Dell have released updated drivers fixing the vulnerability. See: http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?c=us&cs=04&l=en&s=bsd&releaseid=R140746&SystemID=INS_PNT_P4_9400&os=WXPX&osl=en&deviceid=9805&devlib=0&typecnt=1&vercnt=2&formatcnt=1&libid=5&fileid=187886 which does not include information for 14e4:4329 however.
  9. Card: Linksys WMP300N Wireless-N PCI Adapter
    • Chipset: Atheros 5416
    • pciid: 168c:0023
    • Driver: Belkin F5D8001 (just the ar5416.sys file). Rest, standard Linksys install CD
    • Driver version: 6.0.1.4
    • OpenSuSE 10.2
    • ndiswrapper 1.29 (1.34 does not work - locks up the machine)
    • Note: If you use the Linksys drivers then it seems to lose connections after a short time or on large downloads. Replace the ar5416.sys with the one from the Belkin drivers and this does not happen. The only change I made to net5416.inf was to update the version number.
    • Note: This doesn’t work for Fedora 6 kernel 2.6.19 with ndiswrapper 1.25 (built in), 1.29 as above, 1.36, 1.37 or 1.38. The first modprobe works ok, and even allows connection, but you cannot modprobe a second time - each time it maxes the CPU or crashes the kernel. Same symptoms with a 16k stack sized kernel.
  10. Card: Linksys WMP54GS Wireless-G PCI Adapter with Speedbooster

  • Other: Ndiswrapper 0.10rc1 Manual compile. Works fine. Also reports speed up to 125Mb/s. Suspend/Rsume also works great. Great card, hassle freee install.
  • Other: Ndiswrapper 1.9 manual compile on SuSE 9.0, kernel 2.4.32 (ix86). Have found more recent versions of ndiswrapper would compile but fail to load the module with an unresolved symbol error. Works great with the driver mentioned above together with WRT54G router and wpa_supplicant 0.4.6 (rpm binary)., with WPA enabled (”WPA Enterprise”-mode). Still I was not successful to get the card to authenticate with the router set to “WPA2 Enterprise”-mode. For SuSE 9.0 you will need to manually add libhistory.so.5 and libreadline.so.5 to your system in order to meet the requirements for wpa_supplicant (e.g. extract them from the readline-5.0-1.2.i586.rpm )
  • Driver: From Linksys website, wpc54gs_driver_utility_v2.1%2C1.zip, with version number 3.100.64 and a release date of 07/28/2005. Sorry, no direct link is possible, start from the homepage and look for the download section.

WEP works with 64bit and 128bit keys. but bitrate is only 11Mbit/s Note: rename the configuration file for the adapter once you installed the drivers (getting them extracted is quite a mess (WINE/Cedega) you need rt2500usb.*). ‘mv /etc/ndiswrapper/rt2500usb/148F\:2570.0.conf /etc/ndiswrapper/rt2500usb/13b1\:000d.0.conf’ should do the trick.

  • Driver: For 32bit versions, follow instructions for v2 below, replacing the device id 13b1:0014 with 13b1:000e
  • Driver: For 64bit versions: get the usb8023.sys and rndismp.sys from a Windows XP / Vista 64bit installation. Also make sure you have the latest SVN version (or 1.20+). If you use this in combination with the .inf file from the official drivers as found on the LinkSys Support-site, it all works (even WEP and WPA)
  1. Card: Linksys WUSB54GSv2, 802.11b/g, USB 2.0
  • Chipset: Broadcom - BCM4320SKFBG
  • usbid: 13b1:0014
  • Driver: You can install this driver by either of the following two methods.
  • *Method1: The driver for this RNDIS card doesn’t include two .sys files required (usb8023k.sys and rndismpk.sys or usb8023x.sys and rndismpx.sys), as they are part of Windows installation and don’t need to be installed in Windows. However, other drivers for different cards based on RNDIS include these .sys files. One is Belkin F5D7051uk at http://www.belkin.com/support/download/downloaddetails.asp?download=1871&lang=1. You can install this driver with BCMRNDIS.INF, then, copy sys files with ‘cp USB8023K.sys /etc/ndiswrapper/bcmrndis/usb8023k.sys; cp RNDISMPK.SYS /etc/ndiswrapper/bcmrndis/rndismpk.sys’. You then need to inform ndiswrapper that this driver, bcmrndis, should be used for usbid of WUSB54GSv2 (13b1:0014), by executing ‘ndiswrapper -d 13b1:0014 bcmrndis’
  • *Method2: Used the inf file from the CD, and the .SYS files from usr5420 available at www.usr.com http://www.usr-emea.com/support/s-prod-template.asp?loc=unkg&prod=5420. Used snapshot from 13/02/2006, along with the usr system files that i had to install on a windows machine to extract. Then copied the wusb54gs.inf and wusb54gsv2.inf to the folder with the sys files - the wusb54gs.inf worked seamlessly with my device on the snapshot.!
  • With 2.6.16 kernels and later, you also need to configure udev; see entry for USR5421 below for details.

    • Other: Driver for use with ndiswrapper is prepackaged in Ark Linux – Ark Linux users simply “apt-get install driver-atheros”.
    • Other: The card seems to take very long to initialize; took about a minute to find the access point after “modprobe ndiswrapper”. Works well afterwards.

You must install all three inf files from the driver zip file (I had to force NDIS to load all three drivers for the one card with the -d option on each inf). Card works great, but WEP is untested. Works great on Slackware 10.1 with a 2.6.10 kernel, and Ubuntu Breezy using the latest version of NdisWrapper.
    • Fedora Core 5, Kernel 2.6.15-1.2054_FC5, works fine with ndiswrapper 1.13, I only needed the LSIPNDS.INF file. I added the line “‘alias wlan0 ndiswrapper‘” to the /etc/modprobe.conf file so that the network configuration gui would pick it up. Once I applied DNS, IP, Gate, Mask, ESSID, I was running wide open. These are good inexpensive cards at any WalMart in USA.

    • ndiswrapper: ndiswrapper-1.31. 1.28rc2 works also
    • Note: other Broadcom draft n drivers, such as the Dell and others do not work. They appear to support a device 14e4:4328 but not 4329. Only the newest Linksys driver supports 64 bit. Previous one did not. According to iwconfig, getting speeds in the 200 Mbit/s range, even with tx power turned down to 10dBm.
    • As far as I can tell, draft N actually works.
    • ‘This version of the driver also fixes a rootkit exploit’ see: http://blogs.zdnet.com/Ou/?p=365
    • For older BCM cards, the file bcmwl5.inf does not contain the required data although I suspect the drivers themselves do. Other manufacturers such as Dell have released updated drivers fixing the vulnerability. See: http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?c=us&cs=04&l=en&s=bsd&releaseid=R140746&SystemID=INS_PNT_P4_9400&os=WXPX&osl=en&deviceid=9805&devlib=0&typecnt=1&vercnt=2&formatcnt=1&libid=5&fileid=187886 which does not include information for 14e4:4329 however.

    • Driver version: 6.0.1.4
    • OpenSuSE 10.2
    • ndiswrapper 1.29 (1.34 does not work - locks up the machine)
    • Note: If you use the Linksys drivers then it seems to lose connections after a short time or on large downloads. Replace the ar5416.sys with the one from the Belkin drivers and this does not happen. The only change I made to net5416.inf was to update the version number.
    • Note: This doesn’t work for Fedora 6 kernel 2.6.19 with ndiswrapper 1.25 (built in), 1.29 as above, 1.36, 1.37 or 1.38. The first modprobe works ok, and even allows connection, but you cannot modprobe a second time - each time it maxes the CPU or crashes the kernel. Same symptoms with a 16k stack sized kernel.

Also, used “ndiswrapper -i LSTINDS.INF” (NOT lsbcmnds.inf). Works with 64 and 128-bit WEP. Sometimes need to repeat config info (and commit) repeatedly, else driver & card will ignore requested setup. Also works with Gentoo 2.6.9-r9, ndiswrapper 0.12 and drivers that came from CD.
    • Other: Working fine on Ubuntu Breezy Badger (kernel 2.6.12) using ndiswrapper 1.9 / ndiswrapper-utils 1.7 and lstinds.inf driver.
    • Other: Ndiswrapper is not needed. In Ubuntu Dapper (and probably in other Linux distributions as well) this card is supported natively with the acx driver. See http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=75448

  1. Card: Linksys WPC54GS SpeedBooster, 54mbps/125mbps
  • Chipset: BCM94306
  • pciid: 14e4:4320 (rev 03)
  • Other: Ndiswrapper 0.10rc1 Manual compile. Works fine. Also reports speed up to 125Mb/s. Suspend/Rsume also works great. Great card, hassle freee install.
  • Other: Ndiswrapper 1.9 manual compile on SuSE 9.0, kernel 2.4.32 (ix86). Have found more recent versions of ndiswrapper would compile but fail to load the module with an unresolved symbol error. Works great with the driver mentioned above together with WRT54G router and wpa_supplicant 0.4.6 (rpm binary)., with WPA enabled (”WPA Enterprise”-mode). Still I was not successful to get the card to authenticate with the router set to “WPA2 Enterprise”-mode. For SuSE 9.0 you will need to manually add libhistory.so.5 and libreadline.so.5 to your system in order to meet the requirements for wpa_supplicant (e.g. extract them from the readline-5.0-1.2.i586.rpm )
  • Driver: From Linksys website, wpc54gs_driver_utility_v2.1%2C1.zip, with version number 3.100.64 and a release date of 07/28/2005. Sorry, no direct link is possible, start from the homepage and look for the download section.
  • Other: Unzipped the download, and used the drivers from the “Driver/NT” directory, with command ndiswrapper -i LSBCMNDS.inf. ndiswrapper version 1.8 on Unbuntu 6.06. No problems on an unencrypted network.
  • Chipset: Broadcom BCM4318 Airforce One 54g 802.11g Wireless LAN Controller (rev 02)
  • pciid: 14e4:4318 (rev 02)
  • Driver: Linksys Driver CD: /mnt/cdrom0/Driver/NT/LSBCMNDS.inf, bcmwl5.sys, LSBCMNDS.cat
  • Other: Kernel: 2.6.15-1-586tsc, Ndiswrapper: 1.5-1 via Debian Etch, wpasupplicant: 0.4.9-1. Works fine, per WPA . Reports speed up to 125Mb/s.

  1. Card: Linksys WUSB54Gv1, 802.11b/g, USB 2.0
  • Chipset: Prism54
  • usbid: 5041:2234
  • Driver: Linksys Windows XP driver http://www.linksys.com/download/default.asp
  • Other: Works smoothly, of course ;) - this is the device the USB extension was originally developed for. WEP is running, WPA is supported using wpa_supplicant 0.2.5. No problems with both 1.1 and 2.0 host controllers. As with many other USB devices, no success with 2.4 kernels so far. Try to use 2.6.7 or better. There is a native driver for Prism54 that is working on USB support. View its status at Prism54.org
  • Other: Works with latest Windows Driver from linksys.com. No success with 2.4 kernels (even with 8k stack). Works with kernel 2.6.11 and 2.6.12. Works smoothly with 2.6.12 and ndiswrapper 1.14.
  • Other: Driver from Linksys is old. Alternate driver for Sitecom WL-125 driver at http://www.sitecom.com/showdownload.php?id=1998 is newer version. With this, the card doesn’t disconnect. Tested with card with usbid 1915:2234.
  1. Card: Linksys WUSB54Gv4, 802.11b/g, USB 2.0
  • Chipset: RT2500USB (RT2571F) (They just changed the chip and didn’t tell anybody. Be careful which version (v1/v2/v4) you buy!)
  • usbid: 13b1:000d
  • Driver 00: Ralink Driver, Open Source: http://rt2x00.serialmonkey.com/ - 2005-07-25 / Good alternative to ralinktech.com’s driver. Works WELL.
  • Driver 0: Ralink driver: http://www.ralinktech.com/supp-1.htm - 2005-03-25 / Drv2.0.1.0, rt2500usb.inf & rt2500usb.sys Notes: ndiswrapper v1.2-rc1, kernel 2.6.11.7 (also works with grsec2 patch v2.1.5): works on both USB2.0 (load with modprobe ehci-hcd log2_irq_thresh=4 to avoid “usb X-Y: reset high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address Z”) and USB1.1 (UHCI (OHCI not tested (yet?))). WEP works with 64bit and 128bit keys. but bitrate is only 11Mbit/s Note: rename the configuration file for the adapter once you installed the drivers (getting them extracted is quite a mess (WINE/Cedega) you need rt2500usb.*). ‘mv /etc/ndiswrapper/rt2500usb/148F\:2570.0.conf /etc/ndiswrapper/rt2500usb/13b1\:000d.0.conf’ should do the trick.
  • Driver 1: Linksys Windows XP driver: http://www.linksys.com/download/default.asp Notes: ndiswrapper v1.1, kernel 2.6.11.7 vanilla: kernel-oops! ndiswrapper v1.2-rc1 loads fine (EHCI loaded with modprobe ehci-hcd log2_irq_thresh=4) but oopses when unloading the module and the adapter is still plugged in (Kernel 2.6.11.7 vanilla). Yet transmission seems to fail completely (except increasing ‘Tx Invalid misc’ values nothing happens).
  • Driver 2: older Linksys Windows XP driver: ftp://ftp.linksys.com/pub/network/WUSB54Gv4_20040703.exe Notes: ndiswrapper v1.2-rc1, kernel 2.6.11.7 (also works with grsec2 patch v2.1.5): seems to work, but only 11Mbit/s and without any encryption. no need to unplug the device before removing the ndiswrapper module. works on USB2.0, USB1.1 not tested (yet).
  • Driver 3:There is a native driver for rt2x00 but it has no USB support yet. View its status at rt2x00.serialmonkey.com
  1. Card: Linksys WUSB54GR, Wireless-G USB Adapter with RangeBooster, 802.11g, USB 2.0
  1. Card: Linksys WUSB54GSv1, 802.11b/g, USB 2.0
  • Chipset: Broadcom - BCM4320?????
  • usbid: 13b1:000e
  • Driver: For 32bit versions, follow instructions for v2 below, replacing the device id 13b1:0014 with 13b1:000e
  • Driver: For 64bit versions: get the usb8023.sys and rndismp.sys from a Windows XP / Vista 64bit installation. Also make sure you have the latest SVN version (or 1.20+). If you use this in combination with the .inf file from the official drivers as found on the LinkSys Support-site, it all works (even WEP and WPA)
  1. Card: Linksys WUSB54GSv2, 802.11b/g, USB 2.0
  • Chipset: Broadcom - BCM4320SKFBG
  • usbid: 13b1:0014
  • Driver: You can install this driver by either of the following two methods.
  • *Method1: The driver for this RNDIS card doesn’t include two .sys files required (usb8023k.sys and rndismpk.sys or usb8023x.sys and rndismpx.sys), as they are part of Windows installation and don’t need to be installed in Windows. However, other drivers for different cards based on RNDIS include these .sys files. One is Belkin F5D7051uk at http://www.belkin.com/support/download/downloaddetails.asp?download=1871&lang=1. You can install this driver with BCMRNDIS.INF, then, copy sys files with ‘cp USB8023K.sys /etc/ndiswrapper/bcmrndis/usb8023k.sys; cp RNDISMPK.SYS /etc/ndiswrapper/bcmrndis/rndismpk.sys’. You then need to inform ndiswrapper that this driver, bcmrndis, should be used for usbid of WUSB54GSv2 (13b1:0014), by executing ‘ndiswrapper -d 13b1:0014 bcmrndis’
  • *Method2: Used the inf file from the CD, and the .SYS files from usr5420 available at www.usr.com http://www.usr-emea.com/support/s-prod-template.asp?loc=unkg&prod=5420. Used snapshot from 13/02/2006, along with the usr system files that i had to install on a windows machine to extract. Then copied the wusb54gs.inf and wusb54gsv2.inf to the folder with the sys files - the wusb54gs.inf worked seamlessly with my device on the snapshot.!
  • With 2.6.16 kernels and later, you also need to configure udev; see entry for USR5421 below for details.
