In fact I forgot to tell that this structure actually contains the
pointer to the DeviceObject you were talking about. I'm currently using
it just to get access to NDIS_MINIPORT_BLOCK which is located in the

Not yet, maybe in three days or so. I'm currently heavily lifting the
NDIS code to get it working the right way again (I messed up few things
while moving the stuff to PnP handlers) and in the same time I'm
creating "hacks" and fixes on the needed kernel PnP parts.

Great! I thought about doing that too :-) I have made some changes to
the _DEVICE_NODE structure too, but it shouldn't be hard to sync.

Ok. So far I had only the report from Gerard who told that it wasn't
enumerated. Now I've got access to a computer lab with 10 PCs with
RTL8193 so I might give it a try myself...
