Enabling Internet onUExxB6000 and B550 series

Post by erdem_ua » Sun Apr 11, 2010 10:20 pm

I think booting UExxB6000 with B7000 linux image ( and B550 with B650's linux kernel ) will allow us to have WiFi dongles working.
Does anyone tried this at home?

UNB6000 is not related with this topic since it has ethernet device and network support in the kernel already.

I think that some B550 or B6000 user could boot with B650 or B7000 linux kernel from USB (without flashing) and could see what happens. I mean if their Networks property came back (lo device)
After we can try to connect local network for view movies from Samba/NFS shares via WLAN :)

7$ for a cable? what a bargain...
Just take a headphones and cut the wire, attach pins to it and insert from RS232 jack. :) Or spend some money and have such cable. Is that cable isn't available at DealExtreme?

Don't cross flash your TV in this step. But booting with linux kernel of B7000 from USB flash and look ifconfig shows lo device. If it's working, than we can try to make it flash and make it permanent. :)
This might be require rootFS too.

Hi than0,

Looks like there is a working low-level network support in your model tv. Maybe just grabbing the inetd, telnetd etc. from another tv (B7000) and cranking them up at boot time will do the trick. Will have a look at them tonight.

Hi than0,

That's not a surprise, Our Sammy's don't have X11 support in them, so you probably won't find the code for X11 applications ... OTOH, maybe there's a configuration option for that specific lib to disable X11 support.

grtz,

Hey, I mentioned with B6000, a devices which has NO ETHERNET JACK. Specially European B6000's.
Some other B6000 like LNxxB600 has ethernet jack and already have network support. So this thread is not for them :)
