I have a wireless ethernet card from linksys. I was about to install it on a linux, but then i realized i have to use the ndiswrapper for the particular card version that i'm using. The problem is that the ndiswrapper only supports ad-hoc mode. In windows i'm currently running infrastructure mode. I don't know much about networking, so the next question might not make sense. Can i run my ethernet card in ad-hoc mode while the router is set up for infrastructure mode? (i don't know the router configuration, nor do i have any control over the topology of the network).
