Any recommendations for a wireless usb dongle that'll run in rc12 on a 3100?

I was just about to pick up a D-Link DWL-122, and though maybe I should get info first.

I assume that anything prism2 will do...? is wlanng available for the rc12 3100 stuff?

thanks in advance,
ADF

Did you ever find out whether a usb wireless device would work in pdaXrom or not? I am considering getting one.

Thanks,

Jason.

It SHOULD work... it is recognized, etc. the link above didn't end up helping, though.

I'll stay at ut

Haven't tried yet myself. But how about editing /etc/hotplug/usbdnet.conf? It works for USB LAN. I will surely go buy a wifi dongle if it works also.

Has anyone gotten a usb wireless dongle to work? I have a belkin dongle for my laptop that I am interested in using in the z.

I have plugged it in. ifconfig shows nothing. I am unclear on what to do with the /etc/hotplug/usbdnet.conf file.

I am currently using rc12.

actually, it looks ok, as far as power goes. I haven't got a module made for it..in fact haven't thought about it in a little while.

I should get copmiling.... i need to do a usb ethernet adapter, too....and a modem.

The PXA270-based Zaurii would max out @ ~200mA (+5V) supplied to USB OTG clients. Good luck finding a dongle with such a little power consumption that has Linux drivers available and would play nice with OHCI host.

The output current power limit on OTG connector can be increased by replacing a resistor on Z's pcb, but it requires some soldering skills, and also puts the Z out of the warranty.

Having said that, I have a C1K with resistor replaced, and my internal wi-fi module works great. Also, I have tried two different prism3-based usb dongles which work with wlan-ng drivers.

Yeah.. I played with a couple dongles on Tues. Module loaded fine....no wifi.
on the bright side the Linksys USB100M usb/ethernet adapter works fine outta the box. I'm using one in a hotel now. ...And battery powere usb hubs are cheap. I guessI'll see how/that works for me: cf wifi handheld, powered hub, mouse and dongle when tabletop.
