Wireless ZyAir G-220 w/ Linux (zd1211rw)

Hi,

I try to use the Wifi USB adapter ZyAir G-220 (ZyXEL) with Fedora 9
(Kernel 2.6.25.14). However, I don't get any IP from the Router (unknown
type/brand), dmesg shows:
wlan0: privacy configuration mismatch and mixed-cell disabled - disassociate

Here is how I proceeded:

lsusb shows:
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0586:3401 ZyXEL Communications Corp. ZyAIR G-220

According to lsmod the driver zd1211rw is loaded. The network is
"secured" with WEP. Key and ESSID are set using iwconfig. (I tried using
system-config-network as well.)

If I try to bring the interface up ("ifup wlan0") I get a "failed" after
some time.

dmesg shows:

wlan0: Initial auth_alg=0
wlan0: authenticate with AP 00:13:49:08:5d:8c
wlan0: RX authentication from 00:13:49:08:5d:8c (alg=0 transaction=2
status=0)
wlan0: authenticated
wlan0: associate with AP 00:13:49:08:5d:8c
wlan0: RX AssocResp from 00:13:49:08:5d:8c (capab=0x471 status=0 aid=1)
wlan0: associated
wlan0: switched to short barker preamble (BSSID=00:13:49:08:5d:8c)
ADDRCONF(NETDEV_CHANGE): wlan0: link becomes ready
wlan0: disassociate(reason=3)
wlan0: privacy configuration mismatch and mixed-cell disabled - disassociate
wlan0: privacy configuration mismatch and mixed-cell disabled - disassociate
wlan0: privacy configuration mismatch and mixed-cell disabled - disassociate
[...]

The last message is repeated several times.

I was able to use this adapter with an older version of Fedora some time
ago.

Any hints?

Thanks,

  Norbert

Your system does not find the tape during boot phase. For IBM tapes normally
plug them, switch them on, boot up the system and AIX automatically
configures them.

The 220 uses other SCSI cabels than your 320 are they ok. Check the SCSI ID
of your tape - maybe you have other devices using the same ID. Run
'lscfg -v' to display all devices.
