    Hi,

    I am using a Belkin N Wireless ExpressCard adapter. on opensuse 11.2 with a
    xen kernel. What I did was install another opensuse 11.2 inside a Xen domU
    using full virtualization and with a bridging setup for networking. This is
    ona Sony Vaio F11 laptop. The reason I am using the Belkin is that I cannot
    use the built-in wireless.

    What I am seeing now is that when I choose the fixed network (eth0) as
    physical device everyting works but when I use wlan1 (wlan0, the built-in
    wireless does not work with this kernel), I get a similar bridging setup with
    the correct devices in the bridge. Of course, depending on the physical
    interface I configure xend differently.

    I am fairly confident that this is not a Xen problem as I have comparred log
    files of xen for both the eth0 and wlan1 cases and there are only differences
    when it comes to eth0 and wlan1. Also, when sniffing the traffic with the
    wlan1 setup, I do see the DHCP messages from the domU kernel appearing on the
    bridge.

    Therefore, my question is if there are any limitations of ndiswrapper when it
    comes to bridging setups as with xen.

    Cheers
    Erik
