Hi,

With much thanks to ZUG resources, I've set up an ethernet over usb network between
zaurus (sl-c860) and linux laptop, with the latter using dialup-ppp for internet connection.

I plan to keep the laptop's dialup net connection for now but eventually would like to replace
the usb tether with wireless. So I hope to find out whether an 802.11b ad-hoc (peer to peer)
network would be one solution. Would such a wireless peer to peer network allow the zaurus
to access the internet using the laptop's dialup connection (as may be done using the
ethernet over usb)?

Any thoughts on this isuue would be appreciated. Thanks.

yes, this is a great option for that. I know someone who only has 802.11g at home because 802.11b interfers with his 2.4ghz cordless phone... so he has an 802.11b pcmcia wifi card in his laptop (win2k I think) setup as an ad-hoc network. He uses his built-in ethernet port to connect to his cable modem service (in which he has the "internet connection sharing" option set).

This is essentially what you would do, except with dial-up as your connection. Do you need any documentation on how to setup an ad-hoc network connection (either on the pc side or zaurus)?

offroadgeek,

Thanks very much for your comments. Yes, if you could point me in the right
direction for any ad-hoc network documentation (linux pc and zaurus), that would
be really helpful.

Hello,

This is just an update. I was successful in setting up a wireless ad-hoc network between
the sl-c860 and linux laptop. On the zaurus side there's a SanDisk 802.11b cf card. And
on the laptop side there's a Linksys WUSB11 (V2.8) 802.11b USB adapter. The
WUSB11 (V2.8) is supported by the berliOS at76c503a linux driver. It works for the
2.4.18 kernel on my laptop.

See http://at76c503a.berlios.de/ for info about this driver.
