my current situation situation is that I need to be able to get WLAN access by
monday since I will go on a business trip then. So there is practically no
time anymore to buy any WLAN hardware different from what I have. What I
have is a Fiberline WL-430U USB dongle. This is listed as a supported device
on http://zd1211.ath.cx/ so I bought it and didn't search for another device.
But now that I have received it I have to discover that it is obviously *not*
supported by the zd1211 module.
I use Debian etch (testing). I installed the zd1211-source_0.0.0.svnr67-2 and
zd1211-firmware_22.214.171.124-1 packages and compiled the module via
module-assistent, not using a complete kernel source tree but just the kernel
headers as provided by the appropriate kernel-headers package. My kernel is
2.6.15, by the way. I plugged in the dongle and entered modprobe -v zd1211
but got only the following output:
Nothing else happened. When I tried ifconfig wlan0 up, I got the following
wlan0: ERROR while getting interface flags: No such device
/proc/bus/usb contain these lines:
P: Vendor=1582 ProdID=6003 Rev=48.10
S: Product=USB2.0 WLAN
The vendor and product IDs are totally different from what is shown on
http://zd1211.ath.cx/! How can this happen?
And most important question: How can I get this dongle to work *withing a few
days*? Shall I modify the source and add my vendor and product IDs as
supported IDs somewhere? What else can I do? Please help!!!
