Thanks for the thought anyway , Antikx smile.gif. If I'm still hacking at this by then next ZUM meeting, I'll try your card, if that's ok. The we'll see if it's a card issue (see below).

Now this is getting frustrating. I get home after making NO further changes, and now no matter what I do I can't get the wlan0 interface to come back up at all. And the light on the card just stays on steady. I've tried ejecting & reinserting it, even a reboot doesn't help. And the modules are still loaded.

I've been leaving my Z charging with the ethernet card plugged in overnight & when I pack it up to head to work I the morning, I swap the ethernet card for my wireless just out of force of habit before putting in it's pouch (& because I don't like leaving the connector bare) & wouldn't you know, the light starts flashing, indicating that it was loaded properly (i.e. wlan0 available). So I tried a quick test, but it still didn't connect. I tried to eject & insert the card & it wasn't recognized again (light stayed on, no wlan0). So as much as I wanted to, I of course had to get to work tongue.gif

So now I'm trying it here at work again & it's bringing up wlan0 again. kewl. I try the exact commands as InSearchOf suggested earlier (except that it's not an encrypted AP)

CODE
fconfig wlan0 down
iwconfig wlan0 essid essid_name power on
ifconfig wlan0 up
dhcpcd wlan0

Still doesn't work. But shouldn't the light on the card go steady after the 'ifconfig wlan0 up', if it at least associating properly? It doesn't do that, just keeps on slowly blinking. Doesn't that indicate that the card isn't really doing anything?

I'm starting to think that maybe it's the hostap drivers itself that is flaky, especially given the intermittancy of the card loading properly. Can anyone deny or confirm this?

I still haven't found a solution for this. If any of the devs could please let me know the state of the drivers, maybe that would give me a better idea as to where I should be concetrating my efforts. Otherwise, it'll be back to beta2 for me ;(

Well after some more tests & hacking I still haven't managed to get my card to work. So I'm back on beta2 (the last one that worked well for the C7x0 models IMHO). Too bad pdaXii13 doesn't support anything 'smaller' than the C1000 sad.gif

I anxiously await the upcoming new 2.6 kernel release & will try again. thanks
