Hi all -

I'm in the market for a new CF WiFi card. Does anyone have any experience with the Socket Go Wi-Fi! P500? Will it work in a Zaurus? I'm using Cacko 1.22 & 1.23.

if its 802.11b then there is a good chance it will work

check here to see if it works or update the entry if its not there http://www.oesf.org/index.php?title=Wireless_Card_Support

Thx. I'll give ot a go. Socket even provide a table of supported products for the Zaurii; always a good sign.

they forget to mention that if it works with one Z then it can be made to work with all the Z's

I tried it out on my C-3200 and it does not work. I'm not sure what driver it would use, either.

Any idea on how to determine the chipset?

I just got my Zaurus C1000 this week. And I love it. A big part of that was this forum providing a lot of answers and tips. Appreciation!

I'm also interested in gettin this card to work. Anyone on here able to?
Da_Blitz
have you done a search on the othero fourms, i remeber this card bieng mentioned
johnla
Yea, I did a search and this is the thread I found! I have a sinking feeling that it's not supported which sucks being that I just paid $60 for it..
Da_Blitz
well time to debug the problem:

type dmesg > temp_file
then plug the card in
then dmesg > temp_file2

copy those to your pc and post the bit that differs
johnla
Thanks for taking the time!

I attached the temp files and the 'diff temp_file1 temp_file2' results in the diff_res.txt file.

The file is kind of long so i won't paste the whole thing. But here are the highlights:

I hope that's what you needed and I did that right. Let me know if there's anything else.

Thanks again!

note how it mentions there is no primary firmware, ethire it has to be loaded or somthing else

if you can see if you can get it swapped as it sounds like writing a script to load the firmware is somthing you dont want to do
