Hello everybody,

I've got a foxconn wll 3550 because i need a wireless lan to connect to my new ipod touch.

So I've installed the rt2500 drivers. dmesg says

The iPod finds the wireless network "hallo" and connects successfully, but when i try to send a ping

So maybe somebody's got an idea? I've tried static IPs and DHCP, different versions of the drivers and some hints mentioned on some pages on the web but nothing worked (

Ok i found a solution by myself.

Download this driver http//www.foxconnchannel.com/support/d ... -us0000577

And use this with ndiswrapper.
