well done, your persistence has paid off

I am reminded of how people discovered that the original (cheaper) Orinoco silver cards (40 bit wep) were identical to the more expensive Orinoco gold cards (full 128 bit wep), with only a different ident, so that the driver refused to use a larger key. People were able to hack the windows driver, and then someone hacked the firmware updater which allowed you to turn a silver into a gold!
thanks, k30225 card is quite good (range and all) and for $14 in ebay is the best option, i had to give a second try

AltairTK, it seems that is loading orinoco drivers, try "apt-get install hostap-utils" it will blacklist all orinoco and other drivers that could interfere in the process
if you can'T apt-get cause no connection try to add the following lines in
/etc/modprobe.d/blacklist
CODE
blacklist orinoco_cs
blacklist orinoco

also i would check what is inside /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules (or something which has the name *persistent*net.rules in that folder *NOT* the generator' file). what i did is deleting the file (backup it) and let the udev regenerate it again inserting a clean setup for your card when hostap_cs is properly "linked" to the card

if it doesn't autoload just add at the end of the /etc/modules the line "hostap_cs" without quotes, it should be wlan0 in ifconfig and iwconfig, not eth*

checked the wpa thing with this card:

I just did the following:

in /etc/network/interfaces I have this lines for the wlan0 card

CODE
allow-hotplug wlan0
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
   wpa-ssid MyAP
   wpa-psk MyAsciiPASS


then ifdown wlan0 && ifup wlan0 and works

I think when I got stuck with orinoco/hermes drivers being loaded, I ended up renaming in the file system so that they couldn't be loaded, as for some reason blacklisting didn't work... but that was a while ago!

Well done Same, all work perfectly.
But i must to use the trick of Hex-edit the hostap_cs driver.
In teory the original driver should recognize my card (0x0156 - 0x0002), but when i plug, nothing happens. So i edit your hostap_cs.ko replacing your "m0004c2003" with my "m0156c0002" and "04 00 03 20" with "56 01 02 00".
Now, when i plug the card, the driver automatically create wlan0 interface, which is autoconfigure as written in /etc/network/interfaces and when i launch the command "wpa_supplicant" with driver wext and interface wlan0

CODE
wpa_supplicant -c /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf -D wext -i wlan0


in 1/100 of second my Z. is connected in Internet through my router :-)

Thank you very very much !

speculatrix: yeah that was my second choice, i did that in the past as blacklisting didn't work for me either. good point. wink.gif

AltairTK: nice to see you got it working happy.gif tongue.gif biggrin.gif laugh.gif
on the other hand i think you shouldn't need to launch the wpa cmd manually.
have you tried that /etc/network/interfaces configuration with wpa-psk and wpa-ssid?
it launches the wpa_supp... cmd automatically. try to append wpa-driver wext in the iface wlan0 inet dhcp section.
