hi

i am new here, found this place looking for usefull infos for wma11b linksys media adapter

i use linux (mostly debian : aptosid;kubuntu;bodhilinux;debian)

i have downloaded wmaloader and have ran it with an image of squishguava.bin :

bbox:~$ wmaloader --image Downloads/squishguava.bin
Listening for image transfer on port 43496
UPnP Library initialised. Using 169.254.7.140:49152

wma11b connected for this trial on the ethernet port (using dhcp) , i don't know how to communicate further
with it : is there a way to install a slimserver and how do i use it ?

(bbox is connected to lan/internet through wlan for trial purpose)

also, i would like to find a way to move the wma11b to an other room, communicating through a wifi connection.
trouble is that my home wifi uses wpa encryption wich do not seems to be accessible for the wma11b
(i was trying with a xp box before, and it seems the wma11b, after a correct setup with the linksys cd,
through ethernet link direct to pc, never recognised my home wlan. i should use a "ad-hoc" connection i suppose
but nevertheless my goal is to use linux only

any suggestion welcome i am stuck for now !

thanks,
