Problem getting Wireless module working

Hi,

I am using Wireless module Airlink 101 which uses ZD1211 chipset. It
got detected under Android but it is not able to load the driver. Can
anyone guide me on how to add the driver for this?

# ifconfig wlan2 192.168.0.100
up
usb 1-2.2: firmware: requesting zd1211/
zd1211_ub
init: untracked pid 1088
exited
usb 1-2.2: Could not load firmware file zd1211/zd1211_ub. Error number
-2
zd1211rw 1-2.2:1.0: couldn't load firmware. Error number
-2
error: SIOCSIFFLAGS (No such file or directory)

Hi,

You are missing firmware on FS.
i.e. /lib/firmware/zd1211/zd1211/zd1211_ub.
Download firmware and put it in /lib/firmware/zd1211/zd1211/

Create dirs if they don’t exist.

Hi Omkar,

I did that already but it is not able to load the firmware. Giving the
same error.
But I have a question that "lib/firmware/zd1211/zd1211/zd1211_ub" =
"system/lib/....." ??

library path is /lib/firmware/zd1211/zd1211_ub and not one more dir in it.
Please check pathe in ur mail.(not correct).
Also try out different versions of firmware.
I think from 1.0.to 1.4.
Lower versions might work.

Regards,
Omkar

I am able to load the firmware. The problem was with the permissions of this files. Now, i am not able to iwconfig. Could you please guide me in order to set ip address for my wlan.
