Any recommendations for a wireless usb dongle that'll run in rc12 on a 3100?

I was just about to pick up a D-Link DWL-122, and though maybe I should get info first.

I assume that anything prism2 will do...? is wlanng available for the rc12 3100 stuff?

thanks in advance,
ADF

Did you ever find out whether a usb wireless device would work in pdaXrom or not? I am considering getting one.

Thanks,

Jason.

It SHOULD work... it is recognized, etc. the link above didn't end up helping, though.

Haven't tried yet myself. But how about editing /etc/hotplug/usbdnet.conf? It works for USB LAN. I will surely go buy a wifi dongle if it works also.

Has anyone gotten a usb wireless dongle to work? I have a belkin dongle for my laptop that I am interested in using in the z.

I have plugged it in. ifconfig shows nothing. I am unclear on what to do with the /etc/hotplug/usbdnet.conf file.

I am currently using rc12.

The PXA270-based Zaurii would max out @ ~200mA (+5V) supplied to USB OTG clients. Good luck finding a dongle with such a little power consumption that has Linux drivers available and would play nice with OHCI host.

The output current power limit on OTG connector can be increased by replacing a resistor on Z's pcb, but it requires some soldering skills, and also puts the Z out of the warranty.

Having said that, I have a C1K with resistor replaced, and my internal wi-fi module works great. Also, I have tried two different prism3-based usb dongles which work with wlan-ng drivers.

Yeah.. I played with a couple dongles on Tues. Module loaded fine....no wifi.
on the bright side the Linksys USB100M usb/ethernet adapter works fine outta the box. I'm using one in a hotel now. ...And battery powere usb hubs are cheap. I guessI'll see how/that works for me: cf wifi handheld, powered hub, mouse and dongle when tabletop.
