I've found an update version of yk51x86 ethernet driver at

then ndiscvt gives me more parse errors and I've add comment to remove 
for following lines:

;HKR, Ndi\Params\WakeUpModeCap_A\enum,    "25",            0, %Magic 
;HKR, Ndi\Params\WakeUpModeCap_A\enum,    "26",            0, %Pattern 
;HKR, Ndi\Params\WakeUpModeCap_A\enum,    "27",            0, %Mag Pack 
Patt Match%
;HKR, Ndi\Params\WakeUpModeCap_A\enum,    "28",            0, %Link Change%

I report them here because I don't know how if they are to fix or to 

Now ndiscvt completes, but make fails:

% cd /usr/src/sys/dev/netif/ndis
% make obj
% make clean
% ndiscvt -s /usr/local/modules/if_ndis/yk51x86.sys -i 
/usr/local/modules/if_ndis/yk51x86.inf -n yk5 -o 
% make
now it fails only for an old type proto at line 2012 of if_ndis.c
and I've fixed quickly.

% make install
% kldload /modules/wlan.ko
% kldload /modules/ndis.ko
% kldload /modules/if_ndis.ko
link_elf: symbol kmalloc undefined
kldload: can't load /modules/if_ndis.ko: Exec format error
I hope that this report can be useful.

Bye,              \fer

I'll appreciate any hint or help.
