I have a 5500 and am trying to use an OEM Proxim PCMCIA wifi with my cf-pcmcia adapter under the latest Sharp ROM. This thing worked beautifully in OZ, but the Sharp ROM doesn't cooperate with it. Cardctl ident gives the following:
product info: "PROXIM", "LAN PC CARD HARMONY 80211B", "", ""
manfid: 0x0126, 0x0002
function: 6 (network)
no product info available
I tried adding the following to wlan-ng.conf, but got no results:
card "PROXIM LAN PC CARD HARMONY 80211B"
version "PROXIM", "LAN PC CARD HARMONY 80211B"
manfid 0x0126, 0x0002
I looked around and discovered that the orinoco_cs.o is not present under this rom. I'm assuming I need to use that, but how do I get it installed? Does anyone have a copy they can email me that was compiled for their Sharp ROM? Also, once I have that, will my entry above work if I change prism to orinoco, or does that entry look bad? Will there be more changes to make than just these?
I would just go back to OZ, but I rely heavily on the alarm function, and I had too many stability problems with that under OZ, i.e. missed appointments because the alarm failed to go off.
Is there such a thing as a perfect Linux for the Zaurus? Sigh....
Thanks for any help.
