"As more and more native Linux drivers for hardware appear, this kind of problem should start disappearing. NDISwrapper works by loading a Windows driver for the hardware and then using a NDIS APIs (Network Driver Interface Specification Application Programming Interface) wrapper to bridge the gap between Linux and the driver. This, as you might imagine, works but it can lead to system problems. This isn't the first time that NDISwrapper has given Linux users heartburn."
