Ok so I have been following these how-to's to the t, perhaps i am forgetting something.

dmesg look slike this when I plug in the zaurus:
usb 1-2.2: new full speed USB device using address 13
usb0: register usbnet at usb-0000:00:02.0-2.2, Sharp Zaurus SL-5x00

ok, so its picking it up, then i run ifconfig:

ifconfig usb0 netmask up
usb0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 36:A3:3B:A7:C8:E4
inet addr: Bcast: Mask:
inet6 addr: fe80::34a3:3bff:fea7:c8e4/64 Scope:Link
RX packets:1098 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:1392 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
RX bytes:144629 (141.2 KiB) TX bytes:132297 (129.1 KiB)

great, so i can ssh into the zaurus no problem, and i can ping my desktop ( no problem from the zaurus

So I am guessing it must have somethign to do with the masquearading / gateway.

here are the routing tables for the zaurus:

root@collie:~# route
Kernel IP routing table
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface * UH 0 0 0 usbd0 * U 0 0 0 usbd0
default UG 0 0 0 usbd0

the default gateway takes like 10 seconds before it shows up, /etc/resolv.conf is set for the router, same as my desktop ( the router)

I cant ping ip's or hostnames though from the zaurus, it just times out, nor can i ping the ip of the router.

anyone have any suggesstions / things I can try?
