Hi guys!  I am a newbie in using wireless in Linux PPC.  I just bought
a ZyAir G-220 USB dongle for my Powerbook G4.  My kernel is 2.6.16 and
the zd1211 module is from apt-get.

When I plugged the dongle in I can see zd1211 module is loaded and I
can also see wlan0 from ifconfig -a.

1.) I can see my AP detail with "iwlist scanning".

wlan0     Scan completed :
        Cell 01 - Address: 00:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX
        ESSID:"baby"
        Mode:Master
        Frequency=2.437 GHz (Channel 6)
        Extra:SignalStrength=0%,LinkQuality:44%
        Encryption key:on
        Bit Rates:1 Mb/s; 2 Mb/s; 5.5 Mb/s; 11 Mb/s; 6 Mb/s
        9 Mb/s; 12 Mb/s; 18 Mb/s; 24 Mb/s; 36 Mb/s
        48 Mb/s; 54 Mb/s
        Extra:bcn_int=100

2.) And then I setup the ESSID, mode and key using the following command

iwconfig wlan0 ESSID "baby"
iwconfig wlan0 mode "managed"
iwconfig wlan0 key s:password



3.)If I typed the command "iwconfig" it gave the info as below

wlan0     802.11b/g NIC  ESSID:"baby"
         Mode:Managed  Frequency=2.437 GHz
         Access Point: 00:XX:Xx:XX:XX:XX
         Bit Rate:54 Mb/s
         Retry:off   RTS thr=2432 B   Fragment thr:off
         Power Management:off
         Link Quality=20/100  Signal level=-132 dBm
         Noise level=-256 dBm
         Rx invalid nwid:0  Rx invalid crypt:0  Rx invalid frag:0
         Tx excessive retries:0  Invalid misc:0   Missed beacon:0





However, when I run dhclient on it it gave the following error.

    eth1: unknown hardware address type 24
    eth1: unknown hardware address type 24

    No DHCPOFFERS received.
    No working leases in persistent database.



I tried removing the WEP password from the AP but the error is still
the same.  Manual IP config didn't work as well.

My AP is working very well with other laptop.  Also, this G-220 is
tested working on another laptop with different OS.

I searched from this email archive and I saw people successful
installed it by upgrading every package and kernel but it didn't work
on mine.

Please give me some advices.


thx
