Found that it uses the dm9601  chipset and I downloaded the driver


Where can that driver be found? Thanks!

Oh, I guess at http://www.tyrannozaurus.com/feed/beta3/custom/ - was stumbling around in dead links for awhile, but Google is our friend....

But ...

Does this mean I don't have the right 2.4.20 kernel, or that there's some other module I need to load first? (My install is Kathryn.)

"Kathrin" covers many versions. Check theoutput of 'uname -r.' That should tell you if you have the right kernel.

I phrased the question ambiguously. I know I have a 2.4.20 kernel. The question is whether it's the right 2.4.20 kernel - whether the symbol that isn't being found by the module is some option that needed to be compiled into the kernel, but wasn't, or whether it's a dependency that could be satisfied by loading another module first. (uname -r just confirms that it's 2.4.20 - doesn't tell which options it was compiled with or Kathrin version it was packaged with.)

Since I already wasted $100.00 on a not compatable ethernet card, sad.gif (Socket Rugged CF 10/100 ethernet)
I would like to know if any of these USB Ethernet adapters on this Tiger Direct page will work?
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/Se...20ethernet&mnf=

3. Linksys - USB100M - EtherFast 10/100 Compact USB 1.1 Network Adapter

4. Linksys - USB200M - Compact USB 2.0 10/100 Network Adapter

5. Belkin USB 10/100 Ethernet Adapter

6. Trendnet - TU-ET100C - 10/100 USB 1.1 Ethernet Adapter

7. SMC - SMC2209USB/ETH - Compact USB 2.0 To 10/100Mbps LAN Ethernet Adapter

Below brick & mortar stores:

Circuit City
Linksys Compact USB Network Adapter (USB200M)
Same as number 4. above, and store is only 16 miles away. smile.gif
http://www.circuitcity.com/ssm/Linksys-Com...roductDetail.do

Office Depot
TRENDnet USB to 10/100Mbps Fast Ethernet Adapter
http://www.officedepot.com/ddSKU.do?level=...ag=true&An=text

Radioshack
Linksys EtherFast USB 2.0 10/100 Network Adapter
http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.js...rentPage=search

I cannot buy stuff online, thus I need to find a dongle/adapter at a brick & mortar store or catalog outlet.

Is it possible for you to actually try the dongles in-store? Bring your Z along, plug the dongle in, then run "ifconfig -a" to see whether a network device is created, if so you're in luck, if not check "dmesg" to see what chipset the dongle uses.

Most places won't let you open the package.
I wanted to open the package of a pelican PSP power adapter to look at the volt/amp output at Best buy, but I was told to purchase it first, open it, then return it if it didn't work.
When I got it home, I was glad it was the same as the one recommended here on the forums.
I found one more dongle, this one may work. I added it to my post above.

Is there a website that identifies the chipsets in these ethernet dongles, or where online can one find such info?

Thank you, I decided against getting this anyway. It looks like the 200m model has replaced this one.
I also just checked the regular Zaurus outlets and none of them have any CF Ethernet cards now. sad.gif
Handheld-linux [Shop] has the same one that I have that doesn't work.
Trisoft doesn't list CF Ethernet cards now. StreamlineCPUs is gone, Conics has the Buffalo card. Dynamism doesn't have CF network cards.
It's getting hard to find things for the Z nowdays.

my 100m works, the connector isn't a problem. It is small, inexpensive and connects my Z to ethernet. However, I'm not prepared to become a sales zealot for a usb lan dongle--get was is easy to acquire, inexpensive, small, and known to work.

No, it means you didn't load it properly. biggrin.gif Don't use insmod, use modprobe!

Insmod only loads the modules you specify, but modprobe will also load any dependencies. In this case "modprobe dm9601" would also load crc32.

Now all I need to do is get it to recognise the usb id's of my dongle...

I got this dongle at a local store today. I cannot get it to connect.
Linksys USB200M
It also has "NWC USBv2 100m Linksys" on an attached label.
The lights flash for a second, then go off.
dmesg (last line)
usb.c USB device 2 (vend/prod 0x13b1/0x18) is not claimed by any active driver.

lsusb
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 13b1:0018

I also tried a powered hub, but it still gives me the "not claimed by any active driver" message and the lights only flash for a split second, then go off.

How do I know what chipset this uses?

How can I tell if it uses pegasus or rtl8150 based chipset?
Attached File(s)
Attached File  Linksys_USB200M.jpg ( 20.74K ) Number of downloads: 14

I don't have a linux desktop available.
I was hoping the number "100m" on the label would make it similar to yours, adf

This uses the ax8817x driver that needs to be backported from 2.4.21 kernel, and also requires backporting the USB stack according to this post.
