Hello everyone,

I just ran into evil trouble when trying to use NDISulator together with 
a cheap Am1772 card. The card itself is labelled ,,NetVision 802.11b''. 
On the back is the FCC ID ,,PQP-WP288P''. The drivers supplied seem to 
be from October 2003:

-r-xr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  168518 27 Okt  2003 /cdrom/Driver/xp2k/Am772.sys*
-r-xr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  168022 27 Okt  2003 /cdrom/Driver/xp2k/Am7729x.sys*
-r-xr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  145808  7 Jan  2004 /cdrom/Driver/xp2k/Am772Cfg.exe*
-r-xr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  5018 10 Jul  2003 /cdrom/Driver/xp2k/Am772Co.dll*
-r-xr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  15491 27 Okt  2003 /cdrom/Driver/xp2k/Am772Ctl.dll*
-r-xr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  15747 27 Okt  2003 /cdrom/Driver/xp2k/Am772Oem.dll*
-r-xr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  40321 27 Okt  2003 /cdrom/Driver/xp2k/Am772Ui.dll*
-r-xr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  896 10 Jul  2003 /cdrom/Driver/xp2k/Install.txt*
-r-xr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  5561 27 Okt  2003 /cdrom/Driver/xp2k/NetAm772.inf*

The md5s indicate that the same card is also sold as E-Tech WLPC05 (at 
least their driver has the same)

MD5 (/cdrom/Driver/xp2k/Am772.sys) = 6caa78ba28e1003931dde6e1f122055f
MD5 (/cdrom/Driver/xp2k/Am7729x.sys) = 6caa9c534bf7df557b213d16d7635350
MD5 (/cdrom/Driver/xp2k/Am772Cfg.exe) = 75d79a9b1c3809b0539b93b018e0487c
MD5 (/cdrom/Driver/xp2k/Am772Co.dll) = f3927d6827b60fefed1f96835e35929a
MD5 (/cdrom/Driver/xp2k/Am772Ctl.dll) = 9a610fac3db8ebb011a1fa844d8e2156
MD5 (/cdrom/Driver/xp2k/Am772Oem.dll) = d77b7e58216b7f082cf254b49b84e300
MD5 (/cdrom/Driver/xp2k/Am772Ui.dll) = 890cf2e4512655eff84421209c385df7
MD5 (/cdrom/Driver/xp2k/Install.txt) = 1c01d538557d49bf2756e21665aa2c17
MD5 (/cdrom/Driver/xp2k/NetAm772.inf) = 09b1c67ccf0f7906b50bcfa64d412815


Maybe this card is sold under a dozen other names too...

Anyway, I tried to build ndis.ko and if_ndis.ko with the supplied SYS- 
and INF-files. When I try to load if_ndis.ko into my GENERIC Kernel, it 

Did anyone succeed in building/loading if_ndis.ko for this card? I know 
that the Am1772 driver is known to cause trouble, but there seem to be 
at least some cards with this chipsets that work.
