  1. ural0 problem

    Hi,

    I've recently got a Belkin F5D7050 wireless adapter. Plugging it in gives:

    ural0 at uhub0 port 2
    ural0: Belkin Belkin 54g USB Network Adapter, rev 2.00/0.01, addr2
    ural0: MAC/BBP RT2570 (rev 0x05), RF RT2526, address ...

    I can't seem to get the status to be anything other than "no network"

    any ideas?

    OK, it's a device your kernel recognizes

    > I can't seem to get the status to be anything other than "no network"


    even after ifconfig ural0 up media autoselect? (I assume you have an
    access point around somewhere)

    OK, looks like I was being a bit silly (I was forgetting to use up in
    there: I was busy ploughing through the documentation trying all manner
    of bizzare things), but this produces a whole slew of errors until I take
    it down again.

    The kernel spews the following messages:


    ural0: could not write MAC register: IOERROR
    ural0: could not write MAC register: IOERROR
    ural0: could not read MAC register: IOERROR

    Why does it need to write the MAC address? also the MAC address appears in
    the kernel messeges when the device is plugged in.

    So it seems to be correctly recognised.

    > I can't seem to get the status to be anything other than "no network"


    What do you get from:

    # ifconfig ral0 192.168.1.1 -bssid -chan 11 media autoselect nwid "My_AP"

    (change IP, channel and access point to suit).

    I have a D-Link card that only lights up the LEDs once it's configured.

    Basically, it doesn't know what to do until you tell it :-)

    Thanks for the help. This is enough to get it on to the next stage, which
    also breaks. I've made a new top level post about it since its a different
    problem (message id pan.2005.10.04.14.30.22.172159@my.sig)

    Thanks
