There have been reports that the X3i with integrated bluetooth does work. It is speculated that they use different chipsets.

I believe the US version of the X3i uses a SyChip WLAN6060EB module. I am not positive on that (and would not be unless I opened my X3i up), but it is a decent guess.

I have an X3i as well and it does not work.

Jornada 720/HPC2000

Postby dcollins » Tue Apr 27, 2004 11:34 pm

Great news about HPC2000 support in Ministumbler 0.4.0, but I had no joy on my Jornada 720. It installed fine, but I get the following message:

cannot find 'MiniStumbler' (or one of its components). Make sure the path and filename are correct and that all the required libraries are available.

Has anyone had success with this setup? I thought it might have something to do with my Socket BT setup, but WiFi works fine.

Thanks,

Dec

IPAQ 4355 not working.

Postby RadiationSuit » Wed Apr 28, 2004 9:15 am

I think this holds true for both the 41X and 43X devices.
Ministumbler 0.4 does NOT work.

Someone mentioned that they use a TI chipset which I believe is the case.

It was posted elsewhere on this board, but the only product I've gotten working on this device is http://www.wififofum.org .

It's no where near as nice as my network stumbler experience, but it works with many chipsets.

** As an aside, many of the PPC2003 devices will allow you to 'see' the APs out there from the Network Cards tab. Unfortunatly it's kind of sketchy on details for the APs it sees.

Bug in Mini 0.4.0 installer

Postby marius » Wed Apr 28, 2004 1:00 pm

It does work, but the installer puts the wrong CAB file on your device.
Finding the right CAB file and installing that is left as an exercise for the reader :)

It would be interesting to find out for sure. I wonder if anyone knows what chip(set) the European X3i uses. I've searched and found images of both circuit boards and there are definite layout differences in that section of the board. Well the shape and orientation of the rf shield is different.

from what I could find between OUI lookups, the pictures of the unit from the FCC PDF's, and their product information, I believe that the X3i/bluetooth variant is manufactured by USI, and is this module (the WM-BB-AG-01). From press releases I can find (like this one) it uses an Agere core for the WiFi.

the internal pictures of the WiFi module of the X3i w/o bluetooth match the pictures in Sychips product literature.

MiniStumbler HPC2000 Sh3?

Postby fetus54 » Sat May 01, 2004 4:04 pm

I was trying to get mini stumbler working on my Jornada 680, which is an HPC with a SH3 processor. But the latest MiniStumbler release only has ARM and Mips binaries for the HPC. Will there ever be ones for an SH3 processor, or am I just out of luck?

MS 4.0 seems to be working on my 5455 running 2002

Postby tospappy » Mon May 03, 2004 8:42 pm

I have noticed that version 4 is not working on the newer Ipaqs. However, it is working on my 5455 running PPC 2002. I have even interegrated it with my gps and all seems to be working fine. It finds the APs, just not sure how I can connect other than using the built in search function once I have located the AP.

Just make sure you have rights on those AP's, otherwise stay away from connecting to them . . . ;)

ASUS WL-110 CF card

Postby nino_italiano » Wed May 05, 2004 4:49 am

Hi friends!
I tried to use the ASUS CF card, namely WL-110 on Webbook, an handhels having WinCE.net 4.1 as OS. Unfortunately, it does not work with the driver enclosed to the card. I tried also using a generic wireless card driver found on the Internet. It seems working, I mean the led is blinking and the configuration setting remains in the scanning function always ..., the channel changes quickly value. Anyway, it doesn't work.

Can anybody give me suggestions?

Thanks in advance,

gems wrote:Guys,

Ministumbler doesn't seem to recognise my Fortuna GPSmart Bluetooth GPS receiver. I've verified that the device works by running GPS software (SmartMap) on my PocketPC and connecting to the GPS device using Bluetooth.

SmartMap has a built in test utility so I know the devices are communicating using NMEA0183 with serial parameters COM5,57600,8,N,2.

I have configured Ministumbler to use these same serial parameters, as I know they work for SmartMap. I have also tried slowing down the speed to 19200 with no success.

When I launch Ministumbler it launches the Bluetooth browser, allowing me to select the GPSmart GPS receiver, but then I get "Config Error" in the status bar and no GPS data is captured.

Here's the kit and software versions I'm using:

Ministumbler Version: 0.4.0 Build 554
PDA: iPAQ3970
OS: PocketPC Version 4.20.1081 (Build 13100), aka Windows Mobile 2003
WLAN Card: Buffalo WLI-PCM-L11GP
WLAN Driver: Agere drivers for WinCE4 (Found in win_ce_driver_sr02-2.3.zip)
GPS: Fortuna GPSmart BT
GPS Protocol: NMEA 0183

Hope someone can help.

Gems


Try speed of 4800 and remember not to have another GPS app open otherwise Ministumbler won't work. Mi experience with protocol NMEA0183 it's that works better with 4800 speed. Good luck

Ministumbler .4 with Jornada 720 and WL100

Postby ferrymanr » Sun May 09, 2004 4:26 am

I have the new version of MiniStumbler installed and running on my Jornada 720. It does not seem to accept the normal Compaq drivers for the WL100 card. With the card NOT installed it gives message 'No wireless adapter found' and when the card is in the message is 'Adapter not present' with error code 80070078 (think that is right as it only flashes up). I tried tyo load the prism drivers for CE3 but they failed. Any suggestions welcome as I am lost!
