I finally got sound working on the 860, bit hit and miss but...
changed the line in /etc/modules to
CODE
snd-soc-corgi

rebooted.
ran alsamixer and set the following
CODE
Master          85%
Master P        MUTE
Sidetone        0%
Mic Boos        MUTE
Playback        None
Capture         MUTE
ADC High        MUTE
Input Mu        Mic
Jack Fun        Headphone
Output M        UNMUTED
Output M        MUTE
Speaker         Off
Store DC        MUTE

where
the names are truncated as in the display, wich is why "Output M" appears twice
MUTE is [MM] and UNMUTED is [00] changed using the 'm' key
Use the up and down arrows to change all other functions/values
You can turn "Speaker" to "On" as required.

Ok, I have done a lot more digging.

Linksys WCF54G Wireless Compact Flash was the first ever CF 802.11g card, never knew that, it was just cheap on ebay.

Chipset is Agere

Agere provided open source drivers but, I can see no reports of getting this card working and they were taken over and the official links are all dead.
http://www.agere.com/mobility/wireless_lan_drivers.html

Drivers *may* be kernel 2.4 only.

Lots of people (over the years) have asked for help getting this card to work but nothing I can find says "do this and it will work" on any zaurus distro.

Possibly supported by Hermes II

Possibly need wlags49 driver/s

Best hope is a post by speculatrix Jun 7 2005
post
<plead>Any update ?</plead>

Really need to find someone who has wholeheartedly got this card work in the Zaurus and can explain what needs to be done.

for my 860 I had to readd the commented out MAX_BRIGHTNESS line as 15 was almost half the actual working max of 47 and updated the ACTUAL_BRIGHTNESS variable to BRIGHTNESS for the status report

issue 2: using the metal power button on the side of the unit to resume from suspend wakes the Z for half a second and then resuspends repeatable ad infinitum.
Using the keyboard "home" power button is the only way to wake the zaurus completely.

doh ! stupid stupid stupid, of course the Z was not going into suspend mode but simple terminal blanking (screensaver) !
to disable just use

when running kismet the console interface is bombed with messages such as
"SKB BUG: Invalid truesize (320) len=222, sizeof(sk_buff)=160"
networks are still detected.
run
dmesg -n2;kismet
to launch kismet and the errors will disapear (be hidden)

note:
dmesg -n
-nlevel
Set the level at which logging of messages is done to the con-
sole. For example, -n 1 prevents all messages, expect panic
messages, from appearing on the console. All levels of messages
are still written to /proc/kmsg, so syslogd(8) can still be used
to control exactly where kernel messages appear. When the -n
option is used, dmesg will not print or clear the kernel ring
buffer.

CL860 suspend issues:

issue 1: suspend happens after no user interaction EVEN if the power suppy IS plugged in.
Is there any way to set the machine to suspend if the unit is battery only powered ?

Otherwise great work! I will be donating as soon as I get some money !

I setup and old computer with a pci wifi card and booted Knoppix, ndiswrappered the driver and did
CODE
iwlist wlan0 scan

which gave me a load of APs
CODE
iwconfig wlan0 essid MYESSID

which did not change the essid when running iwconfig, followed by
CODE
iwlist wlan0 scan

(now shows only the AP I set as MYESSID)
CODE
iwconfig wlan0 key restricted HEXKEYNOCOLONS

which changed the essid shown in iwconfig and then used DHCP to get a working IP address and got full internet access.
I tried the same on the Zaurus and I get the same issue as before, the access point shown in iwconfig is always 44:44:44:44:44:44
CODE
iwlist wlan0 scan

always shows all the surounding APs, which is odd.
I also noted that in iwconfig results the
QUOTE
Rx invalid crypt
is 5 (the knoppix setup has 0).

Has anyone else got this card and got it working ?

I keep checking ebay and the wifi cards always go well over 20 quid, even second hand, should I just pony up the dough ?

Can the Zaurus be connected to an AP even if the little green wifi light on the card is flashing ?
(ie software tells the card it is being used correctly and to set the light solid)

from some more digging it looks like this card is also supported by the orinoco driver, but I can not see how to get that as the default.
I do not have a /etc/pcmcia/hostap.conf or a /etc/pcmcia/wlan-ng.conf file.
I do have /etc/pcmcia/hermes.conf which has all the correct details for my card to use orinoco_cs
so I commented out the manfid (x2) in /etc/pcmcia/hostap_cs.conf and rebooted but lsmod still shows all the hostap modules.

How can I force the card to use the orinoco driver ?

this isn't a helpful dump of [pc]cardctl status... your wifi card is not in the socket or ejected!

try cardctl insert then cardctl status.

I tried eject and insert and I get the same status, but the card works(kismet) and cardctl ident gives.
CODE
Socket 0:
   product info: "WLAN", "11Mbps_PC-Card_3_0", "ISL37100P", "Eval-RevA"
   manfid: 0x000b, 0x7100
   function: 6 (network)

lsmod shows hostap, hostap_cs and hostap_crypt_wep
uname -r gives 2.4.18-rmk7-pxa3-embedix

any thoughts?

cardctl status (i have not got pccardctl) reports
CODE
Socket 0:
   3.3V 16-bit PC Card
   function 0: [ready]
Socket 1:
   no card


what firmware are you refering to ?

hostap shows up in /var/log/messages and is also the source= I used in kismet config so I guess I am using that.

I transfered kismet via USB and it shows the AP with no WEP security.

So I know the AP works (two machines use it regualarly), I know the card works (kismet can see up to 5 APs in the local area).

I googled the LinkStatus=6 (Association Failed) and there are no answers (most refered to beta drivers).

Has anyone got any ideas what I can try next ?

Is there any more information I can get regarding this Association Failed message ?

Same error is reported if I enable WEP and use the correct key.

What dmesg do you get if you try and connect to an AP with the wrong WEP key ?

I have had this wifi card working a few years ago on Sharp/Cacko but I had to replace a wireless access point and although two other windows machine can connect wirelessly no problem the SL C860 can not.
As cacko gave me no info and a lack of standard wireless tools so I installed pdaXrom but it is giving me the same issue.

Card is an Origo - with ident "SENAO NL-2011CD PLUS" man id: 0x000b 0x7100

Insert card light comes on and flashes any settings in the lan config simply turn off the light for a few seconds and it then starts blinking again.

I tried run iwconfig manually but nothing seems to change.

dmesg always reports (repeatedly) LinkStatus=6 (Association failed)
with a BSSID=44:44:44:44:44

but the wierd thing is if I set the ESSID to "any" in the GUI I get some random ESSID show up in iwconfig and the light goes solid.
(no ip or anything)

I guess this shows the card and the Z are working but, I had dissabled all the wifi security (no WEP, no MAC filtering) I even set the mode to B only (instead of mixed) on the access point but no change.

As I have no internet from the Z I do not have kismet.

what can I try next ?

:: the access point is a linksys WAP54g (not the linux one)
