I've recently installed Midori Linux onto a Compaq IA-1 and have a spare 3Com USB ethernet adapter I'd like to apply to my home network.
MY network runs off DHCP thus Midori's original DHCP setup will work fine.
However, trying to get this adapter to not only be recognized, but to work with this version of Linux has been more than a trial.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
I do realize there are usb ether adapters that work with Midori and the IA-1, however, I'd prefer not to have to buy a new one at this time.
Thanks in advance.

Check under the MSN Companion section of this BBS. The standard kernel in the midori for the IA1 may not have what is needed to operate your NIC.
I have a LinkSys USB100M which required that I patch the kernel with rtl8150 and recompile. Then I had to build a new midori image including the modified kernel. Search some linux devices pages to find out what chipset your 3Com NIC is and then see if there's a patch for it that's compatible with the midori kernel you're using.dont panic
