Sorry for top posting. My 'phone makes it awkward.

I use ndis for the wifi connection in my netbook. Was trivial to conver=
t the Windows driver, and it works without issue.

Anyone know whether it could do 'N' class devices, to address Jerry's l=
ongstanding (and vocal, and justified) complaint - so that we can have =
an argument about why I'd rather configure my wireless manually in a te=
xt file and not have it done automagically by the OS and not be side-tr=
acked by the non-availability of drivers?

Last I heard, this does _not_ work with gigabit unless you can
force-configure both ends of the link.  The negotiation protocol is
such that force-configuring just one end _guarantees_ a mismatch.
