Hello

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

Gracias zmiq2, that command didn't work for me, I will try later with more time. The qcop hint was very helpful anyway.

I made a ipk with the driver, the script and an icon for launching it. I have only tested it with Cacko 1.23 in a SL-C1000, use it at your own risk ph34r.gif

After installing, edit the file /opt/QtPalmtop/bin/zd1211script and modify all the YOUR_ESSID, YOUR_WEP_KEY, YOUR_IP, YOUR_NETMASK and YOUR_GATEWAY with your own data.

You can now plug the USB stick, its LED should turn on for a few seconds and turn off. You will probably need a powered USB hub.

Tap the Initialize USB Wifi in the Network tab, and you should be connected in a couple of seconds.

Let me know it you can make it work!

No luck for me :-(
My device ids are 0ace:1211.
I can't associate to any network and 'iwlist scan' returns nothing.
Also 'iwconfig wlan0 channel 11' gives me an 'invalid argument' error.
The only clues I have are 'Tx status: -110' log messages in the console.

Do you have the module with debug enabled ?

Cheers,

Ludovic.
