Has anyone tried using a USB ethernet adaptor with the SL6000? I looked at the sl6000 kernel source and it didn't have support for the either of the two adaptor's I'm thinking of buying, so I've back-ported the drivers from a more recent 2.4 series kernel (the ax8817x and rtl8150 usb drivers).

However, it's not worth me actually buying the thing if the Z won't put out enough juice to power it up. Anyone know if it's likely to work?

If it does work, eBuyer are flogging an RTL8150 adaptor from Dynamode for like, £6 - which is a bit of a bargain really....

I have used my Dlink DWL-122 and my Hawking Technology HUF11 on my 6k before, with and without a powered hub. The HUF11 I had to pull a module from my OE build of the kernel and the DWL-122 was from my build of wlan-ng. So it can work. I have nto used them for long periods so I am not sure how battery life is...

My Dynamode cheapo USB ethernet adaptor turned up yesterday, and it does indeed work nicely with the SL6000. You just need to install this driver module (I back ported from the 2.4.19 kernel to the 2.4.18):rtl8150.o

CODE
cp rtl8150.o /lib/modules/2.4.18-rmk7-pxa3-embedix/kernel/drivers/usb/
depmod


Plug in the ethernet adaptor and you're off.....

Works perfectly, and for the price (£6 from eBuyer), there's no way you can argue with that smile.gif

The Hawking HUF11 has a Realtek 8150 chipset, and can be bought from Newegg for about $20. I've ordered one, and will report back...

I missed the post above about the HUF11. Copied over the driver, and it inserted perfectly. Quick ifconfig and route commands, and I was all set...

First of all hello everybody, this is my first post.
I have an Intellinet usb/ethernet adapter using the rtl8150 chipset.
With cwaig's driver I can see the device but after a little working I see (with dmesg) a log list of "Rx status -71" and "rtl8150.c: reset needed maybe?". and the device hangs.
Any idea or help would be the welcome

I bought a smc ez connect ust to ethernet ref# smc2208usb/eth
with rtl8150 driver

i made "
cp rtl8150.o /lib/modules/2.4.18-rmk7-pxa3-embedix/kernel/drivers/usb/
depmod
" in root mode , no error returning, dmesg showing rtl8150.c: eth0: rtl8150 is detected

but what else? what type of connections should i do for the network tab. when creating a tcp ip connection, it appears in the list but when i clic connect, i have only wifi or irda option.

any help?

The sharp network settings stuff doesn't detect a usb ethernet adaptor unfortunately sad.gif
But all is not lost - you can just do:
CODE
dhcpcd eth0

from the console to bring up the interface instead (I expect you could set this up as a hotplug script, or create an icon for it to avoid typing it every time if you like...)

Any chance you can post a link to the ax8817x driver ? I have a Linksys Compact USB 2.0 10/100 network adapter.

Thanks

ax8817 driver requires 2.4.21 at least, backporting means also backporting of USB stack

Hey, guys. cwaig put up a link for a rtl8150.o driver, but the link is dead. Googling has gotten me nowhere for this 2.4.18-rmk7-pxa3-embedix kernel module. Can someone please give me the location of this file...I have a Hawking Huf11 dying to be used...

After much searching, I finally found the rtl8150 driver for the 2.4.18 kernel (6000 uses this kernel version). I'm attaching it so it won't disappear again. It is NOT a zipped file. You need to rename it rtl8150.o
Attached File(s)
Attached File  rtl8150.zip ( 11.89K ) Number of downloads: 138

Regarding gfdsa's post in this thread (dated July 16, 2005):

In case someone is still looking for the drivers for the D-Link DUB-E100 USB ethernet, maybe this tivo info can be adapted:

http://www.dellanave.com/projects/tivo/usb20net.html

The tivo seems to be running a 2.4.18 kernel, so maybe if anyone is still interested, this could possibly work. I don't have that usb device myself.
