Hi, I installed Cacko's qtopia rom v1.21 and applied patch b on my 860. First let me say this is an amazing rom! I'm loving it.
The only problem is that I can't get my Ambicom WL1100C wireless card working for the life of me. Before you yell at me let me first say I've been searching the forums for several days now and have tried almost everything anyone's mentioned. I tried the wlan_ng drivers, then switched to the hermes.conf and tried those drivers, and finally loaded the hostap_cs driver package and tried that. So far no luck. The hostap drviers I have been trying are from hostap-wireless-drivers_1.12_arm.ipk from a link on this forum somewhere.
All three drivers do about the same thing: when I plug in the card the "activity" led on the card starts blinking, but keeps blinking forever (rather than going solid indicating it has a link). A lsmod shows the hostap_cs (or whichever driver I'm using at the time) module loaded, so that's working. iwconfig shows the freq changing every few seconds and the mode as "Managed", but it never finds the AP here in my house. I'm not using WEP, and my AP is broadcasting the SSID. I might be worth mentioning that once, and only once, it did actually connect to my WAP, but about 15 seconds later (right after I issued a iwconfig and verified that it detected my ssid properly) it just disconnected form it again and started blonking the led again and hasn't connected since (even with the exact same configuration).
It's also worth noting that if I remove the Ambibom card and plug it into my old 5500 running OpenZaurus 3.3.5 it immediatly connects and finds my AP (using the hostap_cs drivers). So I know it's not a configuration issue on my AP, it's something configured wrong on my 860.
Dmesg doesn't say much useful, it's different for each module. I also started syslogd so I could see syslog messages in /var/log/messages, but I didn't find much of anything in there either :| I could post a lot of output from these sources if it would help.
Thanks for any feedback!
