USB wireless Debian 4.0 etch - no eth device created
The internal Broadcom wireless 4306 wasn't working with the bcm43xx drivers after extracting firmware with fwcutter, so I tried ndiswrapper, but nothing worked.
So I thought I'd try my MyEssentials ME1001-USB, which was working in my Thinkpad 770 with Debian. When that didn't work either, I tried physically removing the internal broadcom and its entry in /etc/udev/rules.d/z25-persistent-net.rules to see if that helped at all, but it didn't.
When I plug in my wireless USB (MyEssentials ME1001-USB) on my IBM T40, Debian 4.0 etch, I don't get a new ethx, wlanx, wifix, or any other new device.
After plugging it in and issuing "modeprobe zd1211rw" I have reviewed the following: (eth0 is the wired LAN adapter)
usb 4-3: new high speed USB device using ehci-hcd and address 3
usb 4-3: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
# lsmod | grep "zd"
zd1211rw 38304 0
