The zd1211rw driver loads without any error messages. I can
see the details of the wireless router with iwconfig and
iwlist scan, but any attempts to ping the router fail "No
route to host". Ifconfig indicates frame errors receiving
packets. Adapter works fine in the same network on WinXp

RX packets:0 errors:36 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:36
TX packets:52 errors:6 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0

Details below.

Using debian packages linux-image-2.6.21-2-686 (2.6.22-2-686
gives same results), and debian zd1211-firmware package. The
adapter works fine on WinXp with the same wireless router.

I'm stuck at this point and any suggestions would be very

On plugging the USB wireless adapter dmesg:

After ifup eth3 /var/log/messages:

Tried ifconfig first:

ifdown eth3
ifconfig eth3 up
