    what's ndiswrapper?? modprobe is only used to load kernel modules, i.e. drivers

    e.g. "modprobe ide-scsi" will load ide-scsi device driver etc.

    From the Ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net website:
    NdisWrapper

    Some vendors refuse to release specs or even a binary linux-driver for their WLAN cards. This project tries to solve this problem by making a kernel module that can load Ndis (windows network driver API) drivers. We're not trying to implement all of the Ndis API but rather implement the functions needed to get these unsupported cards working.


    That's what it is. I was hoping for someone who knew about ndiswrapper
