    Hi,

    I would like to wrap a driver for a USB wireless 802.11g stick, in a driver
    that makes the stick appear to the OS as a wired gig10 device, and
    automatically connect via DHCP.

    The connection and device parameters can be stored on local disk.

    Are there any wireless chipset providers that ship windows driver source
    files?

    are there any examples of wrapping one driver in another like that I can
    take a look at?

    are there device manufacturers that provide sdk for their USB wireless sticks
    Thanks
    Tom

    ps I am a total newbie, so I am unlikely to actually achieve the result but
    I am interested to see how far I get...

    Yes, possible - especially for NDIS5 driver.
    You will need to make a NDIS IM "filter" driver.
    More work for a NDIS6 driver.
    There are several wi-fi drivers in Linux. Porting these to Windows is
    definitely
    possible, though it is not a simple project for a beginner.
    See NDIS IM samples.
    Depends on how you are motivated... why you need this?

    Good luck.
