Symbol Spectrum24 Modules For R197 & R198?
« on: April 15, 2007, 07:00:47 am »
Is there a driver and firmware for Symbol Spectrum24?
The original orinoco_modules.tar.gz only works for Beta3 and below.
Thanks.

Got this from lsmod:

irda                  118760  1 pxaficp_ir

And from dmesg:

pccard: PCMCIA card inserted into slot 0
pcmcia: registering new device pcmcia0.0
spectrum_cs: Cannot find firmware: symbol_sp24t_prim_fw
spectrum_cs: Firmware download failed
eth0: failed to initialize firmware (err = -16)
spectrum_cs: register_netdev() failed

Here is the source of the driver, i am not sure if there is the source of the firmware  (symbol_sp24t_prim_fw).
Now I don't have a SDK setup yet. So it would be great if someone compile it.
Thanks!

it just cannot find the firmware file which isnt installed by default.
just copy it to somewhere it can be found, maybe  /etc/pcmcia/firmware?

But which files should I copy?
symbol_sp24t_prim_fw is missing in /lib/module/2.6.16/

[Update 1]
Ok, i fetched symbol_sp24t_prim_fw by using the "get_symbol_fw" tool from the orinoco-fwutils-0.2 package.
Let's see if it works...

[Update 2]
Yes, it works! I need to copy both symbol_sp24t_prim_fw and symbol_sp24t_sec_fw to /usr/lib/hotplug/firmware .
Now i wonder if the firmware is open and i can package it. There seems to be no license or terms of distribution in orinoco-fwutils-0.2 or the driver source (obtained from http://orinoco.nongnu.org/ ) themselves.
If not I just give the pointer here.

I don't seem to have a /usr/lib/hotplug/firmware dir, created it and copied the firmware files there, i presume thats right?

Yes, this was exactly what i just did today.
It seems the firmware is not freely distributable (thanks to louigi600 for making me aware of this), so i can't attach them here.

For those who are need the firmware of symbol cards or cards using prism chipset:
#0.  You don't need to use the source file of the driver.
#1.  Extract the attached tool set. There should be a few *nix executable files.
#2.  In the terminal, run the command named "get_xyz_fw", according to the hardware of your card.
(In my case, i use get_symbol_fw because my card is Symbol Spectrum24). The firmware will be downloaded to the same directory where you run the command.
#3.  Create the directory in you Z: mkdir -p /usr/lib/hotplug/firmware
#4.  Copy ALL the firmware files to this directory.  
#5.  Insert the card. The card will work if it is the correct firmware.

Seemed to work for me and shut it up about the missing firmware.

Whats odd is I've never had to supply firmwire for this card before??

Seem to have network config issues now though. Will work on them another day I think now though!

If these drivers were build for 2.4.20 they will not work in 2.6

That's not drivers, but raw hardware firmware data. However, I think i found out the reason. Somehow the one of the files was overwritten with the other one and both filesizes were 15kb, while the one should be more than 100kb.

I know it's been many years since the posts in this thread, but hoping that someone will see this and be able to advise.....

Just got a 3100 after several years without a Zaurus....came with the Symbol Spectrum24 card....have tried a variety of things to get card recognized and working, but so far, no go...

Have just done the instructions above, but still get message in Wireless Monitor that no wireless cards detected. However, in the card applet I use, it recognizes that the Spectrum card has been inserted into 3100.....

In lsmod, I see:

Code: [Select]
Module              Size     Used by     Tainted: P
spectrum_cs      7000      0    (unused)
firmware_class  3816       0    (spectrum_cs)
orinoco            40492      0    (spectrum_cs)
hermes             4960       0    (spectrum_cs)

plus a bunch of others, don't think related to wifi cards.....

In dmesg, I see:

Code: [Select]
pxa_pcmcia_init(0)
orinoco 0.15rc2HEAD (David Gibson , Pavel Roskin , et al)
spectrum_cs 0.15rc2HEAD (Pavel Roskin , David Gibson , et al)

hermes @ IO 0xf6000000: Timeout waiting for card to reset (reg=0x0000)!

irda0  no wireless extensions

If I do ifconfig wlan0, I get:

Code: [Select]

Any suggestions?????

Thank you for any help!

Yes, this was exactly what i just did today.
It seems the firmware is not freely distributable (thanks to louigi600 for making me aware of this), so i can't attach them here.

For those who are need the firmware of symbol cards or cards using prism chipset:
#0.  You don't need to use the source file of the driver.
#1.  Extract the attached tool set. There should be a few *nix executable files.
#2.  In the terminal, run the command named "get_xyz_fw", according to the hardware of your card.
(In my case, i use get_symbol_fw because my card is Symbol Spectrum24). The firmware will be downloaded to the same directory where you run the command.
#3.  Create the directory in you Z: mkdir -p /usr/lib/hotplug/firmware
#4.  Copy ALL the firmware files to this directory.  
#5.  Insert the card. The card will work if it is the correct firmware.

I know it's been many years since the posts in this thread, but hoping that someone will see this and be able to advise.....

Just got a 3100 after several years without a Zaurus....came with the Symbol Spectrum24 card....have tried a variety of things to get card recognized and working, but so far, no go...

Have just done the instructions above, but still get message in Wireless Monitor that no wireless cards detected. However, in the card applet I use, it recognizes that the Spectrum card has been inserted into 3100.....

In lsmod, I see:

Code: [Select]
Module              Size     Used by     Tainted: P
spectrum_cs      7000      0    (unused)
firmware_class  3816       0    (spectrum_cs)
orinoco            40492      0    (spectrum_cs)
hermes             4960       0    (spectrum_cs)

plus a bunch of others, don't think related to wifi cards.....

In dmesg, I see:

Code: [Select]
pxa_pcmcia_init(0)
orinoco 0.15rc2HEAD (David Gibson , Pavel Roskin , et al)
spectrum_cs 0.15rc2HEAD (Pavel Roskin , David Gibson , et al)
spectrum_cs: Cannot find firmware: symbol_sp24t_prim_fw
spectrum_cs: Firmware download failed
hermes @ IO 0xf6000000: Timeout waiting for card to reset (reg=0x0000)!
wlan0: failed to initialize firmware (err = -110)
spectrum_cs: register_netdev() failed

If I do iwconfig, I get:

Code: [Select]
lo   no wireless extensions

irda0  no wireless extensions

If I do ifconfig wlan0, I get:

Code: [Select]
wlan0: error fetching interface information: Device not found

Any suggestions?????

Thank you for any help!
