I have to admit I am not sure what changed.
But I have been away on business for 3 weeks
and on my return I can't get a network connection.

The ifconfig on the Zaurus looks good.
But on the computer end:

gate:~# tail messages -f
May 8 16:37:19 gate kernel: usb 1-2: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 7

I went looking for usb0 but it does not appear in the /dev

gate:~# lsusb
Bus 001 Device 008: ID 04dd:9031 Sharp Corp. Zaurus C-750/C-760/C-860/SL-C3000 PDA
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000


Tonight I reflashed my Zaurus but that has not helped, I have even flashed it back to the QT rom.
I am going to go back to pdaXrom.

Please does anyone have a suggestion.

Could this be a kernel problem?
There seems to be some changes since version 2.6.9 that may relate to this.
Has anyone got there Z talking TCP/IP over USB to 2.6.10 or 11

if you lsmod is usbnet in the list? If not, modprobe usbnet, plug your Z in and you should be good to go.

It does seem to be a kernel issue. There have been some changes since 2.6.9 which works. I have not tried any of the intermedet versions between 2.6.9 and 2.6.11.8. More on that soon.

Any tests of these kernels and or review of change logs or comments would be helpful.
I am of to work now and will not get back to this for 10 hours or so.

It was and is compiled in. My Z had been working up till very resently (though I am not sure exactly when) The last three weeks included my brothers wedding, so I did not get to test everything as much as I would like.
