Hi all. I just got a socket CF wireless LAN card for my 5500 that has the Sharp ROM version 3.10. I have tried to install a sniffer program like Kismet or Wellenreiter but both attempts have failed.
Does anyone have any suggestions about a program that is powerful yet simple to install ?
I am a relative newbie and need clear step-by-step instructions.
The program would have to work with Socket card and the Sharp rom.
Thanks very much. Long live the Zaurus !
Could you be more specific about why they failed to install? Have you managed to connect to a known wireless point ok via the wireless network wizard? I seem to recall Kismet needs the sudo package installed first.
Half the reason for replying is that I have a similar lack of success on the wifi front.
I'm using a sharp 3.10 ROM, Pretec WiFi card & kismet.
Ignoring kismet for a moment, I can't even get my Z to connect to my home wifi network (belkin f5d7632uk4 with security disabled). I just get "Initializing" shown in the network panel.
I had better luck on my old ROM - certainly Kismet operated ok. I think I had to manually add the pretec card listing into a file somewhere, though I can't recall the details. Also, this time around I followed the howto about installing kistmet on the SD card, but now I run up the Kismet UI I just get "error connecting to server".
