Zaurus Wifi Access Point Options
« on: May 24, 2011, 01:21:59 pm »
As the Zaurus wifi only supports WEP (and in my case B networking having on an older card), I was wondering what solutions other users implemented to maintain network connectivity in a WPA world?

A second access point would work, or maybe a guest account created with alternate firmware such as DD-WRT, or even keep it wired with a LAN card.

Just curious,

 My dodgy memory says that there is a solution to this in these forums.... I don't recall which forum. Did I say dodgy memory?

As far as I know it depends more on the card you use. I have an Asus card that does support WPA. With wpa_supplicant, which is part of the cacko rom, and several others, it works. I even have eduroam working. That took quite a bit of fiddling though. But in the end it turned out to be quite simple.

So, it is not the Zaurus that is the bottleneck, but the wlan card and rom you are using. Check the specs of your card and search the forum for wpa_supplicant and you'll find the info.

BTW, I have an sl-c3100 like you do ;-)

I used these instructions at tyrannozaurus to get WPA working for my Ambicom card under Cacko on my SL-C3100.
Since tyrannozaurus site is no longer available, I have copied the page and zipped it up for future reference.
Unzip the attachment while leaving the folder with contents intact.
Open the *.htm file in a browser and scroll about half way down for WPA under Cacko.

Thanks all, I'll have to see if the Linksys WCF12 is supported and give it a try.
