I am trying to use my wireless device :
laptop : ASUS A9RP 5B018H
vendor id  : 0B05
product id : 171B
kernel : 2.6.17-10 (kubuntu 6.10)

As explained at http://zd1211.ath.cx/wiki/UntestedWithRewrite, I added the
line { USB_DEVICE(0x0b05, 0x171b), .driver_info = DEVICE_ZD1211B } in the
file zd_usb.c (zd1211rw_2006-10-28.tar.bz2 version)
then make, and insmod zd1211rw.ko

the /var/log/messages :
kernel: [19645.787213] zd1211rw 3-6:1.0: firmware version 4725
kernel: [19645.828237] zd1211rw 3-6:1.0: zd1211b chip 0b05:171b v4810 high
00-18-f3 AL2230_RF pa0 g---
kernel: [19645.830907] zd1211rw 3-6:1.0: eth1
kernel: [19645.831053] usbcore: registered new driver zd1211rw
kernel: [19646.289963] ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): eth1: link is not ready

then I launch wlassistant :
ifup: /sbin/ifconfig eth1 up
iwconfig_set: /sbin/iwconfig eth1 mode managed channel 4 key open xxx
essid my_essid
==>stderr: Error for wireless request "Set Frequency" (8B04) :
    SET failed on device eth1 ; Operation not permitted.

So, my device is now known, but I cannot use it.
Where's the mistake ?
Any idea is welcome.
