has anyone gotten an 802.11g card to work, and with WPA?

snag is at work they only want to run 11g and WPA (Apple airport extreme) on their wireless lan for security; there's only a vague chance they would drop it down to 802.11b (if the Senior Sysadmin decides to get an iPaq with wlan)... but will definitely stick with WPA.

I would get murdered if I put up my own access point (and rightly so!), so I'd have to use bluetooth, which is OK for surfing but not for file transfer.

I would be happy to choose ANY rom, and I have quite a lot of experience with linux and 802.11~ from hacking together an access point with the Keith Smith OpenSTA/OpenAP stuff on a eumitcom single board computer, so am not afraid of getting my hands dirty!

thanks for any thoughts
Paul

WPA is working on Cacko, but it would really help if you let us know what model of Zaurus you are using.

for the 860, but I'd be curious to know if a CF 802.11g could work on SL-C3000 as well (just in case I suddenly get rich) huh.gif

on the subject of 802.11g:

Am I right in thinking there's only one 802.11g card in CF form at the moment, the LinkSys WCF54, and it doesn't work at all in the Zaurus?

I don't have a wlan card at all yet, and want to try and future-proof myself. I would be happy to buy a card which isn't 100% supported (say if it only worked in 802.11b mode just for now), in which case if the Linksys 11g card partly works I'd buy that.

My priority is
1st - 11g future compatibility
2nd - WPA

thanks
Paul

It's the only one I've seen. I have one and it doesn't work in the SL-C3000.
I have about 3 more weeks to return it for a refund. There is an open-source
driver for that chipset at http://www.agere.com/mobility/wireless_lan_drivers.html
I just downloaded it and will take a look.

802.11g networks will generally work in 802.11b as well, so 802.11b cards are
likely to be usable for some time to come. And the necessary drivers are probably
already on your machine. The Linksys WCF54g uses an Agere chipset, so the existing
drivers don't know how to talk to it at all.

I got an Ambicom 802.11b card (prism2 chipset) and it works fine open or using WEP.
Unfortunately WEP is so insecure I don't even want to run it at home.

We need WPA.

I'm told that the wpa supplicant works with prism2-based cards, so it should just
be a matter of compiling it for the Zaurus. Has anybody done that?
