[reposting, sorry if it's a dup] 

Hi,

I have a ZyXEL AG-225H with USB id 0586:3409 and FCC ID SI5WUB410.  This 
device is made by U-Media and the same hardware is also used for some 
versions of TRENDnet's TEW-429UB that has been discussed earlier.  The 
zd1211-devs mail archive shows another positive report for this device 
back in April but it didn't mention if this is with the zd1211rw driver or not.

I installed Fedora Core 6 Test 3 and did a yum update to the latest 
2.6.17-1.2647.fc6 kernel whose source RPM includes patch-2.6.18-rc7.bz2 
(which is why it includes the zd1211rw driver).  I patched the binary 
zd1211rw.ko file to use the above USB id but unfortunately that didn't
work out:

Sep 16 10:16:13 dhcp241 kernel: zd1211rw: no version for "struct_module" found: 
kernel tainted.
Sep 16 10:16:13 dhcp241 kernel: zd1211rw 1-1:1.0: RF AL7230B_RF 0x5 is not 
supported
Sep 16 10:16:13 dhcp241 kernel: usbcore: registered new driver zd1211rw

so I downloaded the latest tarball which supports the AL7230B: 

-rw-r--r-- 1 nathan nathan    49821 Sep 16 10:29 zd1211_2006-09-15.tar.bz2
-rw-r--r-- 1 nathan nathan    12891 Sep 16 08:46 zd1211-firmware-1.2.tar.bz2

I added the necessary USB_DEVICE line by hand and compiled it without any 
problems.  Oh yes, the firmware files are in place too(though not included 
as part of Fedora Core 6 Test 3).  dmesg now says:

Sep 16 10:40:22 dhcp241 kernel: zd1211rw: no version for "struct_module" found: 
kernel tainted.
Sep 16 10:40:22 dhcp241 kernel: zd1211rw 1-1:1.0: firmware version 4605
Sep 16 10:40:22 dhcp241 kernel: zd1211rw 1-1:1.0: zd1211 chip 0586:3409 v4810 
full 00-13-49 AL7230B_RF pa0 g---
Sep 16 10:40:22 dhcp241 kernel: zd1211rw 1-1:1.0: eth1
Sep 16 10:40:22 dhcp241 kernel: usbcore: registered new driver zd1211rw

iwconfig/iwlist work fine and I left a flood ping running to my WRT54GS 
running DD-WRT (new DD-WRT version just released!) for the last 6 hours 
without any dropped except rare duplicate packets.

FWIW I updated the stock AG-225H firmware from 

ftp://ftp.us.zyxel.com/AG-225H/firmware/ 

which improved its searching capabilities.

Regards,

Nathan
