Plug in the wireless LAN card and using su mode:

Activate "lsmod" to check wether that p80211 and prims2_cs modules are there.

Activate "cardctl ident" to obtain the identity of the card.
- Please post the details here and it should look like:

product info: "Wireless LAN", "11Mbps PC Card", Version 01.02", ""
manfid: 0x0156, 0x0002
function: 6 (network)

Next check whether the card identity is in /etc/pcmcia/wlan-ng.conf. If it is not, add the following (according to the information obtained from card's identity):

card "Wireless LAN"
manfid 0x0156, 0x0002
bind "prism2_cs

Reboot to see whether Zaurus can detect it.

Use the following commands to install both modules:

insmod p80211
insmod prims2_cs

I have added your card identity in the wlan-ng.conf file which will be sent to you via PM. just copy it to /etc/pcmcia.

Reboot the Zaurus and good luck.

zip it into a zip file, then you can post it here for Matthewmongan
Matthewmongan, go to ELSI at the top of this forum and download Zeditor
http://www.elsix.org/index.php?w=project&p=1124
It's a text editor that you can edit conf files with.
Once installed, click and hold it's icon, then a properties dialog will pop up.
Select "Execute with root privilege"

if it's a prism card, surely you'd be better off using the hostap driver because that would give you WPA and not just WEP.

try the following:

insmod /lib/moudles.rom/2.4.18-rmk7-pxa3-embedix(for my SL-5600, yours might be a bit different)/net/p80211.o

insmod /lib/moudles.rom/2.4.18-rmk7-pxa3-embedix(for my SL-5600, yours might be a bit different)/pcmcia/prism2_cs.o

I am very sure that the network configuration tool on my SL-5600 was not functioning well with my wireless LAN card.

Mind sharing how to configure WPA.
