Hi All,

I know there's loads of stuff in the forum about connecting to the internet with a zaurus via a lan, and I have been through the howto https://www.oesf.org/index.php?title=Z_for_...ugh_USB_(WinXP)
but I'm stumped.

Following these instructions I can ping my pc, my dns server and external IP addresses but I can't resolve dns. I have added the dns servers for my work lan in /etc/resolv.conf, my XP firewall is off (we have a hardware firewall).

Any thoughts?

Hi All,

I have set up my zaurus to listen to audio streamed from my desktop pc via winamp and shoutcast using the excellent instructions provided by speculatrix at http://www.speculatrix.f2s.com/normsoft/wi...-streaming.html

This works fine for some things- I can listen to mp3s streamed from winamp on the zaurus over wifi, but I want to listen to a digital radio station (the bbc actually), and I thought I could do this by getting the winamp shoutcast plugin to take input from the soundcard on my pc, or by using the real audio plugin for winamp and connecting to the audio stream directly. Whichever method I use, the sound quality on the pc is fine but on the zaurus it's rubbish and it's really quiet.

I have no idea where the problem lies- is it just not practical to do what I want to do, or is there a setting I have got wrong in the shoutcast server (so should ask this question in a different forum) or if it's an issue with kino2/mplayer.

Would I have better luck with a different shoutcast player on the zaurus?

Hi All,

My partner has a 760 that he doesn't use all that often (shame on him) so he often has to charge it up before use. Last night he switched it on after charging it all day, and as it booted up (cacko 1.23) it had strange green spiky lines going up from the hinge edge of the screen. They weren't static, but got longer and shorter, like earthquake seismographs.

When the system finished booting and got onto the splash screen, the lines had gone but the display was very washed out. When cacko was fully loaded, the display was washed out and the lines reappeared, but in white this time. It also seemed as if the icons on the desktop had lines coming off them as well.

Taking out the battery and rebooting didn't help. The japanese menus seemed to be washed out as well, but it was hard to tell. Pressing the screen didn't alter the spikes at all.

So, we turned it off before bed, then looked at it this morning, and it was fine!

Any thoughts?

Hi All,

I am experiencing the "signal is low" issue with my dlink dcf 660, after seconds of getting online right next to my access point. Searching the forums suggests this is due to a bug in qtopia/sharp, and that there's not a lot I can do about it. I haven't been able to find the original reference to this- ie where can I find out more about this bug?

So are my wireless days over? Does this happen to all users of cacko or sharp based roms? Is it related to particular cards?

If I move over to pdaxrom am I going to be able to use wifi again?

Hi All,

I am trying to use my zaurus to remotely control my pc over a wifi network, with the aim of being able to listen to streaming radio through it. Now I gather that there's no zaurus version of real-player yet, but I was hoping I could use a vnc client to control firefox on my pc and listen to the audio through that. I can certainly connect to the pc using teakettle/keypebble, but I don't get any sound.

A search on the internet as to whether vnc supports sound got me very confused as I got totally conflicting answers, so basically is this possible with the zaurus?

If not, does anyone have any idea how to connect to sites like the BBC using an internet radio player like zradio, or using kino2?

Many thanks
