Full Version: Pulling my hair out with Socket Wifi!
OESF Portables Forum > Everything Else > Archived Forums > Zaurus General Forums > General Support and Discussion > Accessories
Are the drivers for the Socket wifi CF card built into the 1.32 rom? I thought it would be cool learning Linux on the Z, but being a newbie I'm totally lost on how to get this working on my 5600. I don't really know the commands used in the terminal to manipulate the files. Can any one point me to a site or give me some help? I tried to follow this but am totally lost (
I have a symbol spectrum24 which I believe is the exact same card as the socket, and it works well on my 5600 with the 1.32 rom with no tweaks. The driver is already built in. However, I can't get wep to work just yet.

At first I though it wasn't working.

I entered my wireless networking details etc but the "current" tab under the networking dialogue said that there was no access point. I figured like you that there was something wrong with the drivers etc.

Actually there was nothing wrong with the card or drivers. I had simply failed to click on the little globe icon on the taskbar with a red cross through it. This then asks if you want to connect to the network, which it then did very successfully.

Perhaps you have made the same silly error that I did?
Thanks, I now think it may be my Ad-Hoc networking setup on my computer giving me the headaches, gonna go pick up a wireless router instead.
I never did get this card to work on my 5500.

Even after downloading a driver, I still have no luck with this card. I bought it becuase I read somewhere that it has better range.
