I have, surprisingly, been able to compile the zd1211 driver for a USB stick I have for use with Cacko on my SL-C1000.

It works perfectly, loading the module when I insert the stick, and I can connect to my WEP wireless lan with a little script I wrote calling ifconfig and iwconfig.

The problem is that the Newtork applet in Cacko doesn't realize that a network device has been inserted, it doesn't give me the option to tap the "connect" button.

It shouldn't be a big problem, but the mail application says that no connection is active, even if I can surf the web with Opera.

Is there some kind of documentation explaining how the network applet works? Where does it look for a network device? any Qtopia guru can help?

Thank you

As a workaorund, you can try this:

in order to make your qtopia environment know that youare connected, type the command in a console:

# qcop QPE/Network 'up()'

and then the email program should work.
