Hello.

Is anyone using a WLAN Zydas zd1211 USB device on PPC?
There is kernel support zd1211rw since 2.6.18 but I'm not sure about the firmware. net-wireless/zd1211-firmware is only for x86 and amd64.

Then I'll go for an Ovislink 5480usb, best for having custom antenna connected.

I'm fairly certain that it works fine, but someone will have to test it and report so we can mark the package. That's all.

So uploading the firmware is not a question of architecture?
I'm going to get that device and will report...

Yes, it's working fine. Only kismet or scanners still need a kernel patch to the last 2.6.22 (channel hopping corrupts packets).
