2 Things. First NDISwrapper is not hard! I hate it when every one keeps saying that its this terrible program. I had never used it until Dell replaced my laptop with one that had a broadcom card. Jumping in (without reading anything but the Archlinux wiki information on howto install and setup) i failed. Why? Cause i didnt read the documentation that said i can only use XP drivers! Once i downloaded the XP drivers instead, it was 4 commands. thats it! and they werent even long and drawn out. Point ndiswrapper to the driver you want to use. load it. set up alias for the module. done.

2nd) LinuxMint already has a tool.

I expect better from you guys!

Return to KNDISwrapper is half-done, but far from half-baked
