Hello all.
This is probably a daft newbie/numpty question. sad.gif
I'm trying to connect my C-1000 to my wireless network at home. (Only had the Zaurus a week)
After it says "connecting" for a while, it says "network offline" When I go to System Info, it tells me the card is suspended.
How do I stop it from suspending? While I was at a hotel this week, the led lit up and it connected to an open network automatically. Worked fine. Now I'm home, nothing. I've searched, but there doesn't seem to be a straight forward answer-please help!
In the Konsole app, cardctl resume doesn't seem to do anything.

It is suspending because it was unable to find and connect to any network. Did you make sure to set the ESSID correctly in the network config? If fyou are just using the "any" profile it is probably trying to connect to the first ap it finds which may be your neighbor. Also, if your ap uses wep make sure you set that up in the zaurus - it will not ask you.

Thanks for the reply.
I've set the ESS-ID, the wep, PPPoE off & on, auto DNS on, then off with address off BT forum.
Still nothing. I'll contract BT see if they've any ideas, but it all seems to be windoze-centric.

O.k.
With PPPoE ticked, no led, after a long while "Network Offline"
With PPPoE not ticked, flashing led, "Network Offline" after 4 sconds.
When I connected my Nokia 770, it found my home hub, asked for the wep, and bingo-connected.
Hmm...

Got it working!
Set ESS-ID & wep.
Exit & reboot with card left in.
Hey Presto! Posted this reply from my C-1000.
I am now an official Happy Bunny. wink.gif

Why were you trying to use PPPoE? I don't think any APs would require it unless it is some strange internet cafe or something.
But it's good to see you got it working. blink.gif

In the guide that came with the router it had the setting for PPPoE for connecting consoles etc. I was trying any permutation of settings to get it connected . unsure.gif
All done. Great machine though. If it had the Psion series 5 keyboard it would be perfect!
