Wireless on Solaris 10

    Well posted the same on comp.sys.sun.admin but might this is more
    relevant group.

    I am trying to setup my wireless connection on a Solaris 10 machine.

    I have a Belkin F5D7050 on a USB port and I think I do not have the
    appropriate driver to enable it. I tried various things, like
    downloading zyd or rum drivers etc and they either failed to attach or
    (in
    case of zyd) failed to compile and gave me plenty of syntax errors in
    the headers.

    Any help is appriciated of how to access my wireless router and see
    the NET.

    I am running Solaris 10 10/09 sun10x_u8wos_08 X86 on an amd64 Dell
    machine.

    The relevant bits of prtconf -pv output are the following

    comp.unix.solaris is probably most relevant.

    Most of the wireless driver work was done for Indiana and Nevada.

    I know that early versions of ath(7D) work with Solaris 10, but
    don't think many other WiFi drivers have been backported.

    You should be able to find PCI cards with the Atheros chipset on eBay.

    Alternatively, you can try booting the LiveCD of the development
    preview of OpenSolaris 2010.03 and see if rum(7D) attaches.

    Happy hacking,
