Is there a driver and firmware for Symbol Spectrum24?
The original orinoco_modules.tar.gz only works for Beta3 and below.
Thanks.

Yes, this was exactly what i just did today.
It seems the firmware is not freely distributable (thanks to louigi600 for making me aware of this), so i can't attach them here.

For those who are need the firmware of symbol cards or cards using prism chipset:
#0. You don't need to use the source file of the driver.
#1. Extract the attached tool set. There should be a few *nix executable files.
#2. In the terminal, run the command named "get_xyz_fw", according to the hardware of your card.
(In my case, i use get_symbol_fw because my card is Symbol Spectrum24). The firmware will be downloaded to the same directory where you run the command.
#3. Create the directory in you Z: mkdir -p /usr/lib/hotplug/firmware
#4. Copy ALL the firmware files to this directory.
#5. Insert the card. The card will work if it is the correct firmware.

Attached File  orinoco_fwutils_0.2.tar.gz ( 5.92K ) Number of downloads: 177

I know it's been many years since the posts in this thread, but hoping that someone will see this and be able to advise.....

Just got a 3100 after several years without a Zaurus....came with the Symbol Spectrum24 card....have tried a variety of things to get card recognized and working, but so far, no go...

Have just done the instructions above, but still get message in Wireless Monitor that no wireless cards detected. However, in the card applet I use, it recognizes that the Spectrum card has been inserted into 3100.....

In lsmod, I see:

CODE
Module              Size     Used by     Tainted: P
spectrum_cs      7000      0    (unused)
firmware_class  3816       0    (spectrum_cs)
orinoco            40492      0    (spectrum_cs)
hermes             4960       0    (spectrum_cs)


plus a bunch of others, don't think related to wifi cards.....

In dmesg, I see:

CODE
pxa_pcmcia_init(0)
orinoco 0.15rc2HEAD (David Gibson <hermes@gibson.dropbear.id.au>, Pavel Roskin <proski@gnu.org>, et al)
spectrum_cs 0.15rc2HEAD (Pavel Roskin <proski@gnu.org>, David Gibson <hermes@gibson.dropbear.id.au>, et al)
spectrum_cs: Cannot find firmware: symbol_sp24t_prim_fw
spectrum_cs: Firmware download failed
hermes @ IO 0xf6000000: Timeout waiting for card to reset (reg=0x0000)!
wlan0: failed to initialize firmware (err = -110)
spectrum_cs: register_netdev() failed


If I do iwconfig, I get:

CODE
lo   no wireless extensions

irda0  no wireless extensions


If I do ifconfig wlan0, I get:

CODE
wlan0: error fetching interface information: Device not found



Any suggestions?????

Thank you for any help!
