    Default Zydas zd1211rw SIOCSIFFLAGS : No such file or directory error!

    Zydas 1211 chipset with zd1211 driver throws a 'SIOCSIFFLAGS : No such file or directory' error in ifconfig <interface> up.
    Or an error similar to this in dmesg:
    usb 1-1: Could not load firmware file zd1211/zd1211b_ub. Error number -2
    zd1211rw 1-1:1.0: couldn't load firmware. Error number -2.

    This, according to aircrack-ng wiki, means that firmware is missing.
    You should download it from here and put the folder named zd1211 in your /lib/firmware/zd1211 and/or /lib/firmware/<kernel version from uname -r>/zd1211.
    This should fix the issue.

    You should just download the deb file which can be found here. http://packages.debian.org/lenny/all...mware/download
    Once you download the zd1211-firmware_2.21.0.0-0.1_all.deb, thats the one I got just do the deb install command which should be easy.

    Code:
    root@bt:~# dpkg -i zd1211-firmware_2.21.0.0-0.1_all.deb
    You will have to cd over to where you placed the file. That is what worked for me.. For some reason I have trouble sometimes with the compressed file. but for the most part it should be simple install. If you do want to use the compressed the zd1211-firmware-1.4.tar then you will have to use this command.

    Code:
    root@bt:~#tar -xvwf zd1211-firmware-1.4.tar
    And cd over into the file which zd1211-firmware folder. Once you cd over you will install with these commands.
    Code:
    cp zd1211_* /lib/firmware/zd1211
    That is the command that the read me file say's to use. Not in so much detail but as for newbie's like you and me I think we should stick with the deb file. if you need help just go to youtube and search for me, I am curemymind. I will make a video of this soon. Like on thursday.... Im going to the beach on the 18th...

    The DEB file is the easiest to understand. Best of luck.

    ----------------------I WOULD NOT RECOMEND THIS WAY DO TO THE FACT THAT IT WILL UPDATE AND POSSIBLY CRIPLE YOUR SYSTEM, SO CAUTION IS ADVICED--------------------

    Or you cand install syanptic pakage manager

    Code:
    root@bt:~# apt-get install synaptic
    Then add the keys
    Code:
    root@bt:~# aptitude install debian-keyring debian-archive-keyring
    Code:
    root@bt:~# gpg --recv-keys 4D270D06F42584E6
    Code:
    root@bt:~ gpg --export 4D270D06F42584E6 | apt-key add -
    Code:
    root@bt:~# apt-key add .gnupg/pubring.gpg
    Open up the "Software Sources" wich should now be in your "Dragon Start ICON" then "System" and click on the "Software Sources". In that Gui navigate your self to "Other Software" tab and click on add. And in that "APT Line:" you will add this.
    Code:
    deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian lenny main non-free
    From that website. http://packages.debian.org/lenny/all...mware/download
    Once you add it you will click close and it should add. Now just close the "Software Sources" and it should try to update. Let it update.

    Now you can open up synaptic and try to find zd1211-firmware but I will just give you the command.

    Code:
    root@bt:~# apt-get install zd1211-firmware
    let it install and there you have it . That is how I did it and it worked for me, now my zd1211 chip usb wifi card is working without a problem.

    Hi, i had exactly the same problem, managed to get wifi going yesterday, then had to reinstall and tried everything i tried yesterday and my wifi wouldn't work, found the answer though

    I have LM technologies LM001 usb wifi adapter and need to set up a Zd1211 driver


    Go here and download Download zd1211-firmware-1.4.tar.bz2 (39.1 KB) to your ROOT directory

    http://sourceforge.net/projects/zd1211/files/

    unpack using

    tar xvjf zd1211-firmware-1.4.tar.bz2

    You should see a folder named 'zd1211-firmware'

    change the name of the folder to 'zd1211

    move the folder to /lib/firmware


    check you network connections and you should be picking up wifi

    then just run through

    ifconfig
    iwconfig

    to make sure it's all ok.

    hope this helps
