How to install NDISwrapper on ubuntu


NDISwrapper LogoWhat id NDISwrapper? Knowing that many vendors don’t release the technical specifications of some of their products, the Linux community finds very difficult to not say impossible the development of drivers. However, there is always a way to go around problems, there NDISwrapper becomes handy. The NDISwrapper project uses Windows kernel API and NDIS (Network Driver Interface Specification) to make our not supported peripherals run on Linux. NDISwrapper is natively made to be used with wireless cards not supported on our Linux Box but surprisingly enough will run far more than that.

How to install NDISwrapper on ubuntu: very easy using the Synaptic Package Manager, start the package manager, root password and make a search for ndiswrapper-common, mark for installation and install,(it should install as a dependency ndiswrapper-utils-1.9 if it doesn’t make a search and install that too).


What we need to do now is install our Windows drivers in our ubuntu Linux and enjoy the use of windows peripherals on Linux.

If you find difficult or not understand how to install windows drivers with NDISwrapper this is a fairly explicative article on how to install them.
