I got a USB to LAN adapter from Radio Shack today.
It is a Belkin F5D5050 USB 1.1 10/100 Ethernet Adapter.
It uses the pegasus driver.
I connected it to an ethernet port on my Linksys WRT54G router.
I had some difficulty at first getting it to connect, using the LAN and Wifi applet.
Then I rebooted and used the LAN and Wifi applet again, and set it to:
Obtain TCP/IP automatically (DHCP)
It connected and I checked with ifconfig.
I now have these 3 numbers:
inet addr: 192.168.1.102
I used dillo and opened these forums. The page loaded in 3 secs.
Then I used Epiphany and tried weather.com-large-maps (a page I have bookmarked).
This took 15 minutes, and it finally timed out.
I then copied the weather-map address into dillo, and the page loaded in 2 secs, but the map had a message "internal server error"
I guess my new USB LAN dongle is working like it should.
When I first hooked it up, I couldn't get ifconfig to output anything about eth0
But after rebooting and trying again, it worked!
One minor bug, if you can call it a bug. The network config GUI won't disconnect the connection. I have to unplug the dongle.
When I first got home with this new "toy", I plugged it into my Cacko Zaurus, and it has a major problem.
The USB icon comes on the taskbar, but after about 3-5 seconds, Qtopia locks up completely. The only recourse is resetting in the battery compartment.
I guess, I'll have to fiddle with that
Zaurus some to get it working. I'll post anything else about this in the Sharp subforum, if necessary.Edit:
What gave me the idea to use this dongle is this thread from awhile back:http://www.oesf.org/forum/index.php?showto...=Belkin+F5D5050
