I have a 5500 running OZ 3.5.3 with OPIE 1.2.0 (hentges)

I have a Symbol Spectrum wifi card and i'm trying to connect to the wireless network I am running at home (my router is a Netgear DG834G).
The network uses WPA encryption.

When I plug in the wifi card, I can see the surrounding networks ok but cannot connect to my wirless network. I am unsure which settings to select in OPIE's network configuration tool to enable me to join my wireless lan.

In the netowkr tool, the connection appears on the list as 802.11b (eth0).
IP is listed as as DHCP has not taken effect (since i'm not on the nw yet)

When I go to configure mode I have the following settings:-

Mode: Auto
SSID: NETGEAR - yes, i know I need to change this for security reasons! smile.gif
Specify access point (checked)
Specify channel (checked)

The main problem seems to be how I can enter the network key to join the wlan, not sure where to enter this (I tried entering the key is the "encrytion" tab but not sure if this is the right screen.

Any help much appreciated,

I am currently running OZ 3.5.3 with Opie 1.2

I've had endless problems installing several different applications and was wondering if there are any vrsions of OPIE that come preloaded with common applications that are ready to use such as a pdf viewer, web browser, or tools such as kismit and wellenreiter etc...

If so, what are they are where could I get more information on them?

I do realise that it is best to practice installing apps and getting familiar with the command line install option, and I am doing this - but it would be nice to be able to use some of these basic applications in the meantime!

Thanks in advance,

Hi - I recently downloaded the opera 7.30 browser to my zaurus 5500 and cannot get it to load properly..

I installed it via the command line using...
ipkg -d ram install xxx.ipk

then symlinked it using...
ipkg-link add xxx

I then retarted Opie and the Opera icon appeared but when I click on it, the hourglass symbol briefly appears on the taskbar then dissapears?

Zaurus 5500
OZ 3.53
Opie 1.20
Symbol Spectrum Wireless LAN CF

Can anyone help me get over this problem?

Thanks in advance,

I recently got a Zaurus 5500 with a 64 MB CF card.
I want to wipe everything on it and flash it with a new ROM. I'm only just getting started with the Zaurus so I don't really mind which ROM I install to start with, OpenZaurus or Sharp (though knowledge on how to do both would be great!).

At the moment, I am trying to flash it with the latest Sharp ROM. I have copied the Ospack file to the root of the CF card (there are no other files on it), put it in the zaurus, did the C+D reset.

The mail and battery lights then just proceeded to flash constantly and nothing ever happened.

I'm not sure if the CF card is the problem as it can be read in the Zaurus and on my PC via my card reader.

Current Setup:

Opie veriosn 1.2.0
Linux Kernel version 2.4.18-rmk7-pxa3-embedix-3.5.3
OpenZaurus 3.5.3

Although OpenZaurus is installed, there is almost no room left on the Zaurus for additional software - is there a way to strip down or reinstall the OS to minimum so I can get more space?

Please can anyone help me with these issues?

Thanks and my apologies that these questions probably appear very stupid!
