Reposting this here for more exposure
I would like to point out you've posted the IPK link incorrectly.
http://notaz.gp2x.de...ap3-pandora.ipk != http://notaz.gp2x.de/misc/pnd/wl1251-modules_1.0-r24.5_omap3-pandora.ipk
Also, forgive me for being thickheaded but, how can i install this?
opkg install package.ipk
thx for this, will try it soon!
Sorry, copy-paste problem, fixed.
Just installed it
It starts the wifi directly when you install the package.
Tried creating a new wireless network (ad-hoc). Well, I am not sure how it's suppose to work but network manager seemed to be doing something. What I am sure tough is that afterward I couldn't connect to my WPA2 network.I then toggled the wifi (to off state) and then again but it didn't want to come back on.
Actually after a reboot I can connect fine and I can turn the wifi on/off. I'll try the ad-hoc and some speed test when I have the time.
Is there any plan or intention to introduce packet injection into the driver?
just tested. works well. thanks notaz!!
I tried the monitor mode: i can turn it on, but it only finds two networks in my area using airmon-ng, though there should be > 10
Not sure though, if I am too stupid to use it correctly or if it is driver related
are you sure those networks have sufficient traffic? also are you setting your channel or just letting it switch on its own? mine seems to pick up all the networks that i can confirm have traffic, i tried with several routers and a wifi hotspot on a phone
so what wifi chip is in the pandora? checked the wiki but didnt see a name. will it support packet injection in monitor mode? just tried for the hell of it to confirm it doesnt currently work
how do you test monitor mode?
also how to stop the wifi auto starting on boot?
also can you uninstall by opkg remove? and if so how to install default driver?
joikuspot is still a no-go, supposedly it should run on ad hoc mode
you can use iwconfig to change your mode from managed to monitor, then use something like airodump-ng to test. at least thats what i did. i havent tried to uninstall because so far this is the best working driver i have tried on my pandora
okay thanks! any ideas how to stop it booting on startup?
should just have to edit your /etc/network/interfaces and comment out the auto line like
hi there is no entry for eth0 in interfaces, any other places to look?
does it say wlan0? can you copy paste interfaces
# /etc/network/interfaces -- configuration file for ifup(8), ifdown(8)
# The loopback interface
iface lo inet loopback
# Wireless interfaces
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
# Bluetooth networking
iface bnep0 inet dhcp
my interfaces looks abit different than yours but i just tried to opt out of a few things i thought would work but wifi always comes on at boot... i think im missing something here, ill have to do a bit of reading
only workaround found so far is to untick "Enable Networking" from network icon
strange although it does not try to connect the wifi is still switched on at boot - get red light on righthand side of pandora? hmmm
