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

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

Anyone know whether it could do 'N' class devices, to address Jerry's longstanding (and vocal, and justified) complaint - so that we can have an argument about why I'd rather configure my wireless manually in a text file and not have it done automagically by the OS and not be side-tracked 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.
