After a couple of months of my owning a beautiful 5500, I still can't connect up. I recompiled a bran spanking new 2.6.8 kernel, hotsync seems to work fine---when I turn on the Z in the cradel, usb0 is created and assigned the proper (static) IP address. Here is where the wierdness begins:
My ifconfig shows:
usb0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 1A:60:19:07:1A:F0
         inet addr:  Bcast:  Mask:
         RX packets:22 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
         TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
         collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
         RX bytes:2502 (2.4 Kb)  TX bytes:0 (0.0 b)

And when I ping I merrily ping away. Except the trafic does not go to usb0---it goes to the lo device. Gkrellm2 shows a big spike in traffic on lo when I ping, while usb0 remains silent! If I take lo down, then I can't ping.
Here is the output of the route command: (komos is my firewall/gateway)
Kernel IP routing table
Destination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags Metric Ref    Use Iface     *        U     0      0        0 usb0        *        U     0      0        0 eth0
default         komos.momus.net         UG    0      0        0 eth0

The above is with lo down. With lo up, it looks like this:
Kernel IP routing table
Destination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags Metric Ref    Use Iface     *        U     0      0        0 usb0        *        U     0      0        0 eth0
loopback        localhost.local       UG    0      0        0 lo
default         komos.momus.net         UG    0      0        0 eth0

And, if it would help, here is the output of the netstat -rn command:
Kernel IP routing table
Destination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags   MSS Window  irtt Iface   U         0 0          0 usb0   U         0 0          0 eth0       UG        0 0          0 lo         UG        0 0          0 eth0

When I press either the "sync" button on the cradel, or "sync start" in the "PC Link" app, I get a short burst of traffic into usb0, followed by a "Communication was aborted" error on the Z. Unfortunately, I have no other way of getting software on the Z, so I can't even see what is going on there through a terminal.

This is all very frustrating, so any ideas that you may have would be greatly appreciatesd. I tried adding a route manually:
route add -host usb0
but that did nothing except add a useless entry in the routing table.

I'm using the SHARP 3.10 ROM, if that helps.
