Supported Hardware/Network cards

Please update this page with the status of each NIC that is tested. Try to test a Windows XP driver and if that fails try a Windows 2000 driver (but be sure to mention the failure of the XP driver in your comments). AS YOU CAN SEE, ITS LISTED ALPHABETICALLY, SO PLEASE COMPLY TO THIS ORDER.

Possible statuses

Status Description
Works Works without any major problems
Not tested No test has been performed.

Known bugs

1. NdisMRegisterInterrupt gets called with InterruptVector == 0 and InterruptLevel == 0 which causes it to fail.

2. Some INF files have both Windows 2000 and XP sections, with separate drivers for both. When trying to install Win2k driver version, ReactOS is being detected as XP, thus XP driver is attempted to be installed, even though its driver file may be missing in Win2k driver directory. As ReactOS doesn't fail when copying non existent files, successful installation is reported, alas driver file is not copied to system32\driver directory. This will cause "Successful install, please restart" window to appear at every boot.
