My apologies if these questions have been asked before.

I just acquired a Zaurus SL-C3200 from Conics (Thanks, Brett!). It has the default Sharp ROM. ROM version is 1.02 JP. English conversion was done by Conics.

I am facing 2 problems:

1. When I insert an Ambicom WL1100C-CF card, the card is recognised and the little globe icon appears. However, the little light on the card itself does not turn on. When I try to connect to a network, it fails.
I tried the card on a Sigmarion III running WinCE4.1, and after installing drivers, the card worked fine.

2. I am using Win2K. I followed Trisoft's instructions from here for the sync installation. I used the USBDrivers/Network directory from the Sharp CDROM for the drivers. Drivers were installed, and when I plugged the Zaurus in, it was recognised. The NDIS driver shows up in Device Manager.

However, as per the instructions, when I try to telnet to the device, or ping it, it fails.

Am I doing something wrong ? Or is there a systematic issue that causes both problems ?
Please help!

For the Wi-Fi card, you may want to make sure the HostAP drivers are loaded and not Orinoco. Do a:


in the terminal, and look to see if "hostap" and "hostap_cs" are present. If "orinoco" and "orinoco_cs" are, do a:

rmmod orinoco_cs
rmmod orinoco


modprobe hostap
modprobe hostap_cs

and you should be good.

USB networking info later.
