Hi.

Does USB200M work with C3200 without an USB hub? If no, is there any Ethernet USB dongles which does not require an USB hub?

Thanks

Hi,

Ethernet dongles? Yes, I have a generic one, and works great. I don't know about USB200M.

Wifi dongles requires powered usb hub.

If it's the one in the first pic below, the driver has to be backported from 2.6 kernel.

The backside shows:
Model No. USB200M ver 2.1

As far as I know, there are not any usb ethernet dongles that require a powered hub. (this means the "wired" type of ethernet dongle).
USB WiFi dongles require a powered hub because these dongles draw more power than the Zaurus USB 1.1 supplies.

I have the Belkin - F5D5050 USB 1.1 10/100 Ethernet Adapter that works out of the box in pdaxii13.
It required some tweaking to make it work in Cacko.
I got it at RadioShack, it's shown in second pic.

i've just tried my asus wl167g wifi dongle and it is recognized (kernel 2.6.24) !
however it apparently needs the ra2500 driver :

i'll try to compile it

EDITED: i cannot compile it because i need 2.6.24-yonggun kernel sources ....

Thanks, it gives me hope. But not all of them can work without a hub:( I have got Dlink DUB-E100, it works with powered hub only.
