I am trying to get a 3Com 3CR10075 USB wireless adapter to work under Fedora
2.6.18-1.2798.fc6.

I used a standard install and have had no success in getting this adapter to
work.

I have downloaded the zd1211rw firmware from zd1211.ath.cx and put this in
/lib/firmware then used tar xvjf.  Since this created a  directory called
zd1211-firmware I made a sybolic link to zd1211 in case this helped.  There
is no .fw file - only the following files:
README      zd1211b_uph   zd1211b_uphr  zd1211_ub   zd1211_uphm  zd1211_ur
zd1211b_ub  zd1211b_uphm  zd1211b_ur    zd1211_uph  zd1211_uphr

I'm not sure if there should have been a makefile somewhere but I haven't
seen any sign of this.

I used the gui network configuration tool to check the adapter.  It is
listed as eth1 but when I try to enable it I get the following message:
"Device 3Comusb0 does not seem to be present. Delaying installation."

When I use modprobe zd1211rw to try to load the adapter, I get the following
message:

I have used yum to install ieee80211 but get a screenful of reported errors
in dmesg.  The zd1211 errors are as follows:

I have looked at countless other posts and HOWTOs to tyr to find a solution
but am getting nowhere.
I would be very grateful for any help to resolve this.
