What is GTNDIS5 NDIS Protocol Driver?

I have had a problem recently when I log-on to my sons' XP Home Edition PC
and it is that I am asked (by means of a Microsoft wizard) to install the
software for GTNDIS5 NDIS Protocol Driver.

When I try to install the software using the wizard and its step-by-step
procedure, I am met with a final message related by the wizard that "the
software cannot be found to install the drivers."

I have checked Control Panel> System> Hardware> Device Manager and GTNDIS5
NDIS Protocol Driver appears here. When I choose to update the driver here,
I get the same Microsoft wizard appear and go through the same procedure,
with the same result! If I delete the GTNDIS5 NDIS Protocol Driver from
Device Manager, it stays away for maybe the next boot-up and then reappears!

This problem could not be resolved recently and became such a nuisance that
I formatted the HDD and set it back to factory settings using the Restore
Disks that came with the preloaded O/S machine.

Things seemed to run fine until I used the Microsoft Windows Updates
procedure at
http://update.microsoft.com/windowsupdate/v6/default.as.... Then I
began to experience this GTNDIS5 NDIS Protocol Driver nuisance... Prior to
installing latest Microsoft Updates, there was no sign of this problem
whatsoever - indeed, GTNDIS5 NDIS Protocol Driver was nowhere to be found on
my PC?!

Can anyone please help me to resolve this problem?? I have no idea to what
GTNDIS5 NDIS Protocol Driver relates to on my system and it is driving me
crazy!!!

A quick search of Google (try it sometime) brings up an article that says
NDIS stands for Network Driver Interface Specification. Therefore I would
guess that this has something to do with your network interface card (LAN).

If you have a non standard card, you will have to reinstall the
manufacturers dedicated WinXP drivers.

Good luck!

Thanks Richard.

Having looked again at Device Manager, I find two devices which are used to
access the internet:
Belkin 54Mbps Wireless USB Network Adapter. - This is ENabled!
and
Linksys LNE100TX Fast Ethernet Adapter (LNE100TX v4). - This is DISabled!

My Belkin adapter accesses thru a Belkin router and all drivers are
installed and latest updated drivers and there appears to be no problem with
them at all.

I have tried updating the Linksys drivers, but the Microsoft wizard informs
me that it cannot find any newer drivers to install.

As I access the Internet using the Belkin network, I have purposely DISabled
the Linksys Ethernet card. This was disabled before I installed Windows
Updates and did not appear to be responsible for the GTNDIS5 wizard messages.

HTH?

I agree, Bob I - but this is a serious topic and I would request that only
serious replies be posted within the thread.

Many thanks,

alba.
