    zd1211 in ubuntu?Sparklan WUBZ-103 showing Fiberline WL-430U {SOLVED}

    EDIT: Solved!!!

    the -110 error is a timeout issue, it turns out the permissions on the directory for the drivers was incorrect, this was solved by the following

    sudo chown -R root.root /lib/firmware/zd1211
    sudo find /lib/firmware -type d -exec chmod 755 {} \;
    sudo find /lib/firmware/zd1211 -type f -exec chmod 644 {} \;

    My thanks go to Hin-Tak Leung for providing solution
    And To Kerry_S who was extremely helpfull in aiding me toward this stage

    EDIT: 2nd page post 16 is starting from scratch again with a clean install, please pick this up from there.

    Please help peeps, even someone with little knowledge has more knowledge than I. I think this should be simple to fix.

    I am learning (well i feel) a lot along this process and have attempted lots of stuff with guides and info i have found out along the way, but need help.

    I posted earlier, but didnt adhere to sticky post so here goes again.

    I need to get a sparklan usb wifi card working in ubuntu 8.1.

    Issue: instaling Sparklan WUBZ-103
    been to Sparklan.com downloaded linux driver and its ZD1211 drivers

    I run lsusb = Fiberline WL-430U, so is this correct for the zd1211 drivers? EDIT: I have now found out that this is a yes! http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Dr...1211rw/devices

    I didnt know it was inbuilt to start with and have tried to build the driver from the website download and make that work, rather unsuccsesfully, it kept erroring on certin config and directories. Original Post=http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1063154

    the downloaded file from sparklan.com is trying to install ZD1211 diver which according to http://www.linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drivers/zd1211rw should already be installed in the linux kernel.

    Are the ZD1211 drivers already included in Ubuntu 8.1 then? EDIT: I have found the ZD1211 drivers using synaptics and installed them but it didnt do anything

    How do i get the inbuilt driver to work? EDIT: I have found supposedly more updated drivers (Firmware) from http://sourceforge.net/project/showf...ease_id=544191

    So i am currently still stuck on getting it working

    Thanks

    Just tried using sudo lshw -C network, cos ive read it lists hardware and drivers and this came up.

    Does this mean the driver is installed, however the network is disabled. I.e. i just need to setup the wireless connection?

    ls /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build
    arch drivers init lib net sound
    block firmware ipc Makefile samples ubuntu
    crypto fs Kbuild mm scripts usr
    Documentation include kernel Module.symvers security


    So theres no install folder and config file.. Is this why i have no luck running the driver?

    I was just about to follow the procedure for the ndiswrapper however this is the ifrst thing it asks you to do.. So how do i get these files? im presuming i jut cant create them and there must be something i need to install.

    I have just been playing with synaptic package manager to install some buid stuff and just out of curiosity i looked for the zd1211 files and found them, so ive installed them but again i get nowhere, ive restarted the system and nothing wireless still shows.

    Please can someone give some input here, i think ive done a lot on my own, but im obviously out of my depth.

    Re: zd1211 in ubuntu?Sparklan WUBZ-103 showing Fiberline WL-430U

    managed to get ndiswrapper installed and installed the gui.

    now this says zd1211bu ihardware present yes in the gui

    john@john-laptop:~$ ndiswrapper -l
    zd1211bu : driver installed
    device (1582:6003) present (alternate driver: zd1211rw)

    so it looks as tho the system know there is a driver zd1211rw available in the system, i just dont know how to use it.

    Re: zd1211 in ubuntu?Sparklan WUBZ-103 showing Fiberline WL-430U

    your iwconfig shows it as wlan0, so:

    sudo ifup wlan0
    sudo iwconfig wlan0 essid "your-wireless's-name"
    sudo dhclient wlan0

    arch has is fantastic with my zd1211, i use there netcfg works every time.

    oooh a reply yay, thanks kerry, was getting a bit fed up talking to meself and getting nowhere lol

    just tried the first part and get the following

    john@john-laptop:~$ sudo ifup wlan0
    [sudo] password for john:
    Ignoring unknown interface wlan0=wlan0.
    john@john-laptop:~$

    also with the windows ndiswrapper gui thing, the configure network icon comes up with could not find network configuration tool.

    So looks like i cant use the ndiswraper either.

    can someone hold my hand through this procedure please, perhaps i need to start back from the beginning or something?

    Ive read a lot and tried a lot now perhaps its something easy, i dunno anymore.

    ooh and what is this arch has thing please? are you suggesting that it could be easier to configure and setup this usb device?
