I am new to the Zaurus and not very linux literate so be kind in responces. I have an SL5500 running sharp rom 3.10. I have installed a Meritline MWL-672 WIFI card. I have upgraded to Opera 7.30. The card worked well, I installed it, configured the network settings and I can surfe the web very nicely. The setup has proven very stable so far.
I have two questions. First how do I set up the Zaurus so I can access the computers on the network that is connected to my WIFI? I have a Linksys Wireless-G Broadband router networked to four Win XP Pro computers. I would like to be able to access spreadsheets and pdf files on the network. Is there a way to do this?
Secondly I am wondering if there is an easy way with this set up to use a WIFI sniffer program? I have looked into several. Kismet looks complicated to install and use. Wellenreiter II does not seem to be compatible with my rom choice. I have installed and tried Discoverer. It installed fine and seems to run but I can not seem to get it to run in root. I tap and hold the icon, then check the box to run in root. but it then kicks me out and when I start Discoverer again it still tells me to run in root. Any one have any advice?
Thanks for any help
