I've spent the last Day and a half trying to get this card working in Cacko, I've searche around on the fourms and have found other people get it working properly, but when I try and follow the steps it dosn't work. I just flashed back from pdaxii13 where the card worked perfectly. Currently I can't get this card to work properly on my Cacko beta 1 install. I insert the card and it recognizes with the normal task bar alert. I've setup a profile specific to my network, and the connect button remains grayed out. Clicking current reveals that I have:
CODE
Avaible service.
Wireless Lan Service : Off Line
MAC Address :     MY:MA:CA:DD:RE:SS
AP Address:         (Blank)


heres what my spectrum.conf looks like
CODE
device "spectrum_cs"
#  class "network" module "hermes", "orinoco", "spectrum_cs"
  class "spectrum" module "hermes", "orinoco", "spectrum_cs"
#  class "hostap" module "hermes", "orinoco", "spectrum_cs"

card "Spectrum24 LA4100 Series WLAN PC Card"
  manfid 0x026c, 0x0001
  bind "spectrum_cs"

card "Socket Communications CF+ LP WLAN Card"
  manfid 0x0104, 0x0001
  bind "spectrum_cs"

Line 3 was added for testing purposes, I'll get to that a little further down.
I adjusted the card line to accurately reflect the line from cardctl ident.

Here's some command output.

Dmesg:
CODE
eth0: Station identity 0021:0002:0002:0001
eth0: Looks like a Symbol firmware version [F3.10-06] (parsing to 31006)

hermes @ IO 0xf6000000: Card removed while issuing command.
...
spectrum_cs: AccessConfigurationRegister: Configuration locked
eth0: Error – 16 shutting down Hermes chipset
pxa_pcmcia_suspend(0)
I'm not removing the card. That goes on for about 20 lines before the card hits suspend and the hermes module is unloaded

iwconfig:
CODE
eth0      IEEE 802.11-DS  ESSID:""  Nickname:"zaurus"
          Mode:Managed  Frequency:42.9497GHz  Bit Rate:11Mb/s   Tx-Power=15 dBm  
          RTS thr:off

cardctl status
CODE

cardctl ident

  function: 6 (network)

cardctl resume
CODE
ioctl(): device or resource busy

sudo ifconfig eth0 up
CODE
SIOCSIFFLAGS: Device or resource busy


I get the folowing results if I swap the lines in spectrum.conf as follows.

CODE
#  class "network" module "hermes", "orinoco", "spectrum_cs"
#  class "spectrum" module "hermes", "orinoco", "spectrum_cs"
  class "hostap" module "hermes", "orinoco", "spectrum_cs"


Normal Insertion popup.
Current tab lists No available services in the current tab, and the connect button remains greyed out.

I am able to manually enter my ESSID, and WEP key to iwconfig in this state, and bring eth0 up with ifconfig. I am then able to ping off of google.ca, but when I attempt to access netfront, it tells me that I'm offline, and I don't have a properly setup profile.

Any help getting this matter resolved would be greatly appriciated. Thanks in advance =D

Something odd happened to my 3000 this weekend, I'll explain below, but here's where I sit now. My 3000 will boot to the DIAG menu with the DM keys using either the battery, or the power cable and seems to work fine there. This leads me to believe that my Z is recoverable. I don't know what I should do to get it back up however, Should I try doing a NAND restore, and if so is there a step by step guide so I don't muck it up further and completely brick it.

For whatever reason It will not power on other then the diag menu. Currently attempting to power it on will cause the green HDD light to come on faintly with just the battery, and a little brighter with the power, but not quite the intensity of normal HDD activity. This is after I ran a HDD and NAND test from the DIAG menu. Before that the Power light would com on when the on/off button was pressed as long as there was external power. Prior to that, I had attempted to run an fsck from battery through the OK+on/off menu, when I was receiving an error message about hda3 on boot. It complained something in Japanese, and then restarted to the same error message.

Currently It's sitting on my desk with no battery or power cable attached I'd really like to get it working again, and I don't really care too much about the data stored in there, It would be nice to recover it, but non essential.

Thanks in advance for your replies smile.gif

Has anyone had any luck setting up and using an IR remote on the Z for say something simple like the Music or video player? I'm looking at getting a key chain sized unit, something like the DLO iDirect for the Ipod, and using it via the Z's IR port. I was just wondering if this is possible or just a pipe dream?

Thanks a bunch
