Windows 10 vs Remote NDIS - Ethernet USB/Gadget not recognized

JochenAlt asked on


I used to connect my ODROID U3 with Ubuntu via USB to Windows 7 and Windows 8 via remote ndis, which shows up in the device manager as "Linux USB Ethernet/RNDIS Gadget" and results in a new LAN connection.

Although c:/Windows/inf/rndiscmp.inf is there, plugging the USB cable does give the according windows sound and makes the device manager blink, but nothing else happens, no network adapter shows up nor an "Other device" (as in Windows 7).

Worked like a charm in Windows 7 and Windows 8 but not in Windows 10. 

Any ideas?




update: Microsoft must have fixed this, suddenly it works out of the box, havent installed anything. Like in Window 7/8,when plugging in the ODROID, the RNDIS device comes up again .

If have the same problem with a BEAGLE board like device.

It is exactly the same behavior, tested on two machines (Windows 10 Pro German 32 and 64 bit, but in test mode, 32 bit machine with internet connection and running on latest patch level)

But I found a new device in device manager:

"Serial USB-Device (COM3"

or in German

"Serielles USB-Gerät (COM3)"

Up to now I wasn't able to convince Windows, that this is an network card....
