@arris: You probably do, and need the SamyGO extensions to get the network configured. The standard firmware/kernel does not support network, so the whole shebang of xxB6000, xxB550 network enabling needs to be done. The initial question I responded to was the module compilation. Did that some months ago for someone else, and the module is already available for download.

@frmys: See above, you will need to go through the steps as set forth in the B-series wiki on network enabling on xxB6000 models. This involves installation of custom firmware and some manual configuration. Nothing spectacular, but a lot of steps to take.
The good news is that your module works,though.

About the module version: I could send you the source code I compiled back in march, if you really want to check. But believe me, they are the same. Timestamps of files don't mean that much.

HTH,

Dear Marcelru ,

Thanks alot for all your help and interest on my problem.

About the module , of course i trust you. If you say that they are identical , i accept this without any doubts. Maybe the manufacter had re-prepare the driver package and out on their website. This explains the different dates of files and "as nothing is changed" in datas/codes they are identical to your sources. ;)

As you are aware juuso has prepared a custum firmare that can be uploaded from regular tv update menu. He has this file hosted on rapid-share. Can you please try and confirm on your B6000 that this file really enables network features , i mean the kernel is modified or changed to "network enabled" type by this special firmware? If this works this is the easiest and painless way for ordinary users to have network.

Not only firmware, you need also network enabled kernel!
If you followed my manual, then you flashed uboot and kernel too. But then you don't get problems you're reporting.

Hi frmys,

My B6000 has firmware T-CHL5CIPDEUC. It's a CI+ device. Before I can test anything, this particular firmware needs to be rooted properly. So far, that has not been successful. So, I can't help you there, I'm afraid.

Not that I'm not interested in rooting this machine, but just now it's not possible.

grtz,

marcelr
