zd1211rw is a module for ZyDAS ZD1211, ZD1211B and Atheros AR5007UG USB 802.11g wireless LAN chipsets. This is not to be confused with the ["zd1201"] module which supports the ZD1201 802.11'''b''' chipset.
Line 9: Line 7:
After being acquired by Atheros, the ZyDAS ZD1211B chipset was rebranded as the "Atheros AR5007UG" (also known as AR2524/AR5524). Devices with chipsets bearing these names are also supported. <<TableOfContents(2)>>
Line 11: Line 9:
Non-free firmware is required, which can be provided by installing the DebPkg:zd1211-firmware package. The ZyDAS ZD1211, ZD1211B and Atheros AR5007UG USB 802.11g wireless LAN chipsets are supported by the zd1211rw Linux kernel driver, introduced at Linux 2.6.18. [[#supported|Supported devices]] are listed at the end of this page.

After being acquired by Atheros, the ZyDAS ZD1211B chipset was rebranded as the "Atheros AR5007UG", also known as AR2524/AR5524.

Non-free firmware is required, which can be provided by installing the DebianPkg:zd1211-firmware package.

This driver is not to be confused with the [[zd1201]] driver which supports the ZD1201 802.11'''b''' chipset.

Firmware is required to be installed for device operation:
Line 15: Line 20:
The zd1211rw driver is included in the mainline Linux kernel since 2.6.18-rc1. It is present in Debian kernel images.  1. Add a "non-free" component to {{{/etc/apt/sources.list}}} for your Debian version, for example: {{{
# Debian 7 "Wheezy"
deb http://http.debian.net/debian/ wheezy main contrib non-free
}}}
 1. Update the list of available packages and install the DebianPkg:firmware-zd1211 package (in Wheezy and older releases, the package name is DebianPkg:firmware-zd1211): {{{
# Jessie and newer
apt-get update && apt-get install firmware-zd1211
# Wheezy and older
apt-get update && apt-get install zd1211-firmware
}}}
 1. Connect the device to your system. The zd1211rw kernel module is [[Modules|automatically loaded]] for supported devices.
 1. [[WiFi/HowToUse|Configure]] your wireless interface as appropriate.
Line 17: Line 33:
 <!> [:DebianEtch:Etch] users: Some ZD1211/ZD1211B devices may not be known to the zd1211rw driver in the 2.6.18 kernel. Refer to the [#troubleshoot troubleshooting section] to install a 2.6.24 kernel image. <<Anchor(troubleshoot)>>
== Troubleshooting ==
 * Examine the kernel ring buffer ([[DebianMan:1/dmesg|dmesg(1)]]) to verify required firmware files are being loaded by the driver. Lack of firmware is the usual reason for the "SIOCSIFFLAGS: No such file or directory" error message.
  * Ensure the DebianPkg:zd1211-firmware package is installed.
 * For devices not recognised by the driver, see [[http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers/zd1211rw/AddID|these instructions]] on Linux Wireless for adding a device ID.
Line 19: Line 39:
1. Add a "non-free" component to {{{/etc/apt/sources.list}}} for your Debian version, for example:
{{{
# Debian Etch/4.0
deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian etch main contrib non-free
}}}
{{{
# Debian Lenny/5.0
deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian lenny main contrib non-free
}}}
2. Install the DebPkg:wireless-tools and DebPkg:zd1211-firmware packages:
{{{
aptitude update
aptitude install wireless-tools zd1211-firmware
}}}
3. Physically connect the device to your system.

Line 35: Line 44:
4. The necessary kernel module should be [:Modules:automatically loaded]. If necessary, it can be manually loaded via:
{{{
modprobe zd1211rw
}}}
5. Verify your device has an available interface:
{{{
iwconfig
}}}
6. Raise the interface to activate the radio, for example:
{{{
ifconfig wlan0 up
}}}
7. [:WiFi/HowToUse:Configure] your wireless interface as appropriate.

ZyDAS ZD1211/ZD1211B and Atheros AR5007UG devices

This page describes how to enable support for WiFi devices based on ZyDAS ZD1211 chipsets on Debian systems.

The ZyDAS ZD1211, ZD1211B and Atheros AR5007UG USB 802.11g wireless LAN chipsets are supported by the zd1211rw Linux kernel driver, introduced at Linux 2.6.18. Supported devices are listed at the end of this page.

After being acquired by Atheros, the ZyDAS ZD1211B chipset was rebranded as the "Atheros AR5007UG", also known as AR2524/AR5524.

Non-free firmware is required, which can be provided by installing the zd1211-firmware package.

This driver is not to be confused with the zd1201 driver which supports the ZD1201 802.11b chipset.

Installation

Firmware is required to be installed for device operation:

  1. Add a "non-free" component to /etc/apt/sources.list for your Debian version, for example:

    # Debian 7 "Wheezy"
    deb http://http.debian.net/debian/ wheezy main contrib non-free
  2. Update the list of available packages and install the firmware-zd1211 package (in Wheezy and older releases, the package name is firmware-zd1211):

    # Jessie and newer
    apt-get update && apt-get install firmware-zd1211
    # Wheezy and older
    apt-get update && apt-get install zd1211-firmware
  3. Connect the device to your system. The zd1211rw kernel module is automatically loaded for supported devices.

  4. Configure your wireless interface as appropriate.

Troubleshooting

  • Examine the kernel ring buffer (dmesg(1)) to verify required firmware files are being loaded by the driver. Lack of firmware is the usual reason for the "SIOCSIFFLAGS: No such file or directory" error message.

  • For devices not recognised by the driver, see these instructions on Linux Wireless for adding a device ID.

Supported Devices

The page HowToIdentifyADevice/USB explains how to identify a USB device.

The following list is based on the alias fields of modinfo zd1211rw in Debian 3.2.0 (3.2.46-1+deb7u1) kernel images.
