Supported Usb Lan Dongle
« on: March 25, 2007, 07:35:10 am »
Can anyone recommend an inexpensive USB LAN adapter that will work with pdaXrom/ii13? I want one that is supported in both the 2.4 and 2.6 versions. Smarter folks that I have tried to get the driver for my DM9601-based adapter working with no luck. I thought with the manufacturer providing linux drivers it would be easier, but obviously not. I would like to get a working USB LAN adapter before my next trip. Thanks.

USB dongles with pegasus and rtl8150 based chipsets will generally work since those two drivers are included out of the box...
This means, most cheap USB dongles made in Taiwan will work, but the more expensive ones won't...

Thanks. Most of the listings don't specify the chipset. I will look though. If anyone has a link to an eBay or other listing for a known good one, please share.

I got mine (see my sig) from geeks: http://www.geeks.com/details.asp?invtid=HE-130R&cat=NET
geeks often has grey market products from Taiwan and usually use generic chipset, which make them Linux friendly.

Edit: btw, I got mine for $8 + S/H (but i placed a tall order with a total about $150 to offset the shipping charge).

But ...
USB NIC which uses Davicom DM9601 chipset is the cheapest that I've ever seen...
It costs me only 20 RMB (about 2.6 USD)...

I would not stop trying to build driver for it ...

Yes, all the cheap ones I am finding have that chipset which is what I already have. I appreciate Meanies compiling and wellswangs continuing to work on the driver, but for a $10 (1.99 +delivery) I can't wait forever to get a working NIC.

Thanks to Merli for compiling the driver, and add "WK-668 USB NIC" support to the driver

Is the 9601 driver completely working now? If so, other than installing the ipk is there anything else needed to get it working? Thanks.

Is that link to the exact adapter you have? Does it work "out-of-the-box," or with little work?

Thanks.

I'm also very curious about this. Any posting specifying what works, with the steps involved, will be much appreciated.

Thanks. From the picture it's the same one as Geeks.com -  a bit closer to me.

Is the driver you're using the Davicom 9601 one discussed above?
