wlan appeared in 7.2 or 7.3 and 8.0 as I remember and I always thought that
it's just a matter of security and easy maintaining and probably multi-wlan
routing. In a real daily usage I use it as well, for example it works great
on my server, but I guess it doesn't matter for a testing hardware, does it?

I've tried i386 as well with ndis and it doesn't make a sense. Could you
please tell me the driver version you use, it's SP number if it's official
HP driver, or link to download the one you have to work with. And a link how
to use ndis_events will be great, I've never try this one.
