Yes, this was exactly what i just did today.
It seems the firmware is not freely distributable (thanks to louigi600 for making me aware of this), so i can't attach them here.
For those who are need the firmware of symbol cards or cards using prism chipset:
#0. You don't need to use the source file of the driver.
#1. Extract the attached tool set. There should be a few *nix executable files.
#2. In the terminal, run the command named "get_xyz_fw", according to the hardware of your card.
(In my case, i use get_symbol_fw because my card is Symbol Spectrum24). The firmware will be downloaded to the same directory where you run the command.
#3. Create the directory in you Z: mkdir -p /usr/lib/hotplug/firmware
#4. Copy ALL the firmware files to this directory.
#5. Insert the card. The card will work if it is the correct firmware.Click to view attachment
I know it's been many years since the posts in this thread, but hoping that someone will see this and be able to advise.....
Just got a 3100 after several years without a Zaurus....came with the Symbol Spectrum24 card....have tried a variety of things to get card recognized and working, but so far, no go...
Have just done the instructions above, but still get message in Wireless Monitor that no wireless cards detected. However, in the card applet I use, it recognizes that the Spectrum card has been inserted into 3100.....
In lsmod, I see:
Module Size Used by Tainted: P
spectrum_cs 7000 0 (unused)
firmware_class 3816 0 (spectrum_cs)
orinoco 40492 0 (spectrum_cs)
hermes 4960 0 (spectrum_cs)
plus a bunch of others, don't think related to wifi cards.....
In dmesg, I see:
orinoco 0.15rc2HEAD (David Gibson <email@example.com>, Pavel Roskin <firstname.lastname@example.org>, et al)
spectrum_cs 0.15rc2HEAD (Pavel Roskin <email@example.com>, David Gibson <firstname.lastname@example.org>, et al)
spectrum_cs: Cannot find firmware: symbol_sp24t_prim_fw
spectrum_cs: Firmware download failed
hermes @ IO 0xf6000000: Timeout waiting for card to reset (reg=0x0000)!
wlan0: failed to initialize firmware (err = -110)
spectrum_cs: register_netdev() failed
If I do iwconfig, I get:
lo no wireless extensions
irda0 no wireless extensions
If I do ifconfig wlan0, I get:
wlan0: error fetching interface information: Device not found
Thank you for any help!
