I'm slowly working towards stuffing wifi into my C1000, so...
Grabbed a cheap USB wifi stick.
product link

Trying to get it working under R198.
Any help would be appreciated.
The sticker on it says: PANWL22038
The green light comes on when I plug it in.
dmesg doesn't say much:
CODE
usb 1-2: new full speed USB device using pxa27x-ohc1 and address 2
usb 1-2: configuration #1 chosen from one choice

I'm guessing I have to edit a file and add this device info? Sorry, I haven't done this in a while, so please excuse my ignorance.

Can you see what chipset it uses (if it's clear)? That would probably be a good place to start.

Ahhh... That's the command I was trying to remember.

On the Zaurus it doesn't say much: ZyDAS
on a Linux PC it says the same thing for lsusb
but on a PC "dmesg" says:
CODE
[148756.704000] usb 4-4: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 18
[148756.836000] usb 4-4: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice

I found this site, which talks about getting them working under Slackware:
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/sl...ackware-494224/
It points to the source being available here:
http://zd1211.wiki.sourceforge.net/
I would be happy to buy one of these and ship it to them if someone would help me get it going.

Am I just being thick, or is there no download link for the driver?

EDIT:

QUOTE
Requirements

* Linux 2.6.18-rc1 or newer, with the ieee80211, ieee80211softmac, and firmware_class modules (CONFIG_IEEE80211, CONFIG_IEEE80211_SOFTMAC, CONFIG_FW_LOADER)
o There is no backwards compatibility with older kernels
* Device firmware (see above)


It appears you need a 2.6.18 or newer kernel to get the driver. sad.gif

EDIT2: I can try building the other driver listed, the one without support, if you'd like.

There are instructions here: linky

Indicates 2.4 kernel.

I think finding the 2.4 version might be difficult.

Maybe pester InSearchOf to make sure the module is in the upcoming release, as well...

EDIT: Sorry, I got sidetracked building this new web browser. I'll work on the module afterwards, if that's OK.

OK, see how this works. There were a bunch of errors about stuff not being defined (kernel config issues, I guess), so I'm not too hopeful.

OK
I copied the KO file to: /lib/modules/2.6.16/kernel/drivers/usb/net/
I rebooted, iinserted the usb wifi
checked dmesg and lsusb, but nothing had changed
typed this:
CODE
modprobe zd1211b

and got this:
CODE
FATAL: Error inserting zd1211b (/lib/modules/2.6.16/kernel/drivers/usb/net/zd1211b.ko): Invalid module format

checked dmmesg and it said this:
CODE
zd1211b: module has no symbols (stripped?)

any suggestions? am I doing something wrong?
