Till now the ndiswrapper configured eth0, eth1 etc. interface;
however, depending on other cards present and modules loaded, this
could be eth0, eth1 etc. So sometimes it interferes with the network
setup for other cards.
I have added module parameter dev_template to the latest cvs. With
this, you can specify the base name of the interface. In my case, I
load the module as
modprobe ndiswrapper dev_template='ndis%d'
Then the interface appears as ndis0. Note the quotes; %d will be
replaced by the next available number for the interface with that base
A quick correction!
dev_template requires %d every time, which is pain, so I replaced that
with basename. Usage is
modprobe ndiswrapper basename=ndis
Instead of ndis, use eth or wlan or anything else you want. Again,
default basename is eth, so interface appears as ethX if no basename
