I got a Longshine LCS-8131G3 stick with a zd1211b.
Unfortunately, this device does not work well with the
zd1211_2006-06-20 snapshot and kernel 2.6.17
First, here are the specs:
zd1211b chip 1582:6003 v4810 full 00-11-f6 AL2230_RF pa0 g--
FCC ID: RU5AWG02U
What works currently?
I can bring the interface up, set an essid, configure a wep key, but I
am unable to send anything.
dmesg says the following:
ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): eth2: link is not ready
SoftMAC: Open Authentication completed with 00:05:5d:eb:60:16
SoftMAC: Authentication response received from 00:05:5d:eb:60:16 but
no queue item exists.
The TX/RX statistics show that there were no packets send or recieved.
Nevertheless when switching to monitor mode and dumping all packets
"on the wire", the stick recieves at least the beacon frames from the
access point. Furthermore iwconfig displays the (presumably) correct
Connecting to an unencrypted network does not work either. Testing
with WPA was not possible due to lack of hardware.
I hope this report is helpful.
