      for patch-2a, extract the files into the "src" directory for ndismonitor.

      then, type this command for each patch file in
      the archive

      patch callbacks.c callbacks.c-0.1a.patch

      patch callbacks.h callbacks.h-0.1a.patch

      patch main.c main.c-0.1a.patch

      patch interface.c interface.c-0.1a.patch

      patch global.h global.h-0.1a.patch

      Then for patch-2b, do the same thing, except type these commands:

      patch main.c main.c-0.1b.patch

      patch interface.c interface.c-0.1b.patch

      After that, go back one directory and type "make clean" and then "make"  and that is it...

      I can write a script for you if you want...

      let me know...

      I have one question : Signal Strenght is always 100% ,

      Yes, ndiswrapper almost always reads the signal strength as 100%.  The way the signal strength gets calculated is different for most chipsets, and I don't think it has been fully implemented in ndiswrapper for all of the different cards.  The Signal Quality is the number you should go by more. 

      Actually, sometimes my signal strength drops to 98-99% for a while, and then goes back up, but I'm not sure it really means anything as of yet.  Unless ndiswrapper fixed it in their new 0.9pre1 release, (i haven't upgraded to that yet)
