I'm sorry, my point was that the card might be able to get to work with
a native module, not that ndis was at fault.

And you're so right about that. This was in no way whatsoever a critique
of ndis!

As I didn't know what chipset I was working with, I didn't know
if I'd actually downloaded the right windows driver to test with. So I
blamed myself for not getting the right driver, not ndis.

Now that I do know, and if someone can point me to the right windows
driver, I can probably find some time to get you some usuable debug data
if you want. I just wanted to be sure to get all other facture right,
before sending bug reports on nids :-)
