I am trying to connect a Zaurus running pre1 with laptop. The Zaurus finds the card and the configuration scripts look apporpriate. One shows it cycling through channels and a signal to noise bar (in percent). I have it configured to use a fixed ip address.
a. what mode should be configured?
b. no encruption is set for now
c. tcp/ip is pre set
Is this correct? What else should be checked for??
The loptop also appears to be configured correctly. It offer 3 script choices, infra, ap, and ad-hoc. I chose ap, assuming it that would accept incoming connections?? Is that correct?
What else is may be missing ??

Please clarify the models of your zaurus and your wifi card, as well as the ROM you are using.

AP means you want your Zaurus to act as an AccessPoint - you really want that? If you have an external AccessPoint, then Infrastructural mode is the way to go.

If you just have the laptop and the Z, I'd choose ad-hoc mode (more peer-to-peer than infrastructure's server-client). I'd also be interested to know what you're running on your laptop (if it's WinXP, then it's probably 'protecting' you from connecting without WEP enabled)
