Description Olaf Petermann 2009-08-20 19:55:12 UTC
Description of problem:
could you please add the vendor id 083a:e503 to the list of the devices supported by the zd1211rw device driver. This vendor id is used by the wireless lan usb device delivered by Arcor (Vodafone) in Germany 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel version

Comment 1 Nicolas Chauvet (kwizart) 2009-08-21 09:49:59 UTC
This should be reported to the kernel component (where the zd1211rw driver live), not the firmware.

Comment 2 John W. Linville 2009-08-21 13:17:21 UTC
Olaf, have you done this in your kernels?  Does the driver actually work with that device?

Comment 3 Olaf Petermann 2009-08-22 09:50:08 UTC
John, I have just added the vendor id to the static struct usb_device_id usb_ids[] of the kd_usb.c, recompiled the kernel and modules and everything worked fine. I've been using this device since without any issues. Even WPA2 is working well.
