Talk:Neo 1973 and Windows
This procedure works for me, Windows XP SP2 and Neo kernel Linux fic-gta01 126.96.36.199-moko11-r2. I can even do ipkg update/upgrade with the routing in place. hhf423
Troubles installing the Neo1973.inf on Windows
I had some difficulties, but could do it like this:
- Download Neo1973.inf
- Rightclick the Neo1973.inf "Install"
- Rightclick the Workspace, Properties, select tab "Hardware", Button "Device Manager"
- The "Linux USB Ethernet/RNDIS Gadget" was not correctely installed
- Rightclick "Update driver", select the same driver you downloaded before (Neo1973.inf)
... and it worked :-)
No needs to enter an IP into the configuration panel, the ".inf" file do the job. It seems "
XP Professional x64
Took some tweaking to get my Neo to work under XP Pro x64... in the end I used the Vista inf neo_vista_x64 and modified the line
AddReg = RNDIS_AddReg_Vista
and changed it to
AddReg = RNDIS_AddReg_XP
worked like a champ after that!
With Windows Vista Business 32 bit I was unable to install any of the INF files.
Another maybe quite unsecure method (WinXP Professional 32 Bit)
All the options listed on the Neo and Windows-site didn't really work for me to get an internetconnection working for my freerunner.
I tried the following and it worked fine for me: 1. downloaded the .inf-file, and all that stuff so i could connect via putty. that was no problem. 2. going to the Control Panel > Network Connections and selecting the Local Area Connection of my pc 3. right-click > Properties > tab "Advanced" (the third in the row) > "Internet Connection Sharing" > toggle the button "Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet connection" 4. switching off the windows firewall 5. internet is reachable!!! :)
works with kernel 2.6.24.
can anyone reproduce that or confirm or critizise that and, if alright, write it on the real page? thanx
Windows 7 does not seem to need an external driver
I could not get the Neo_vista_x64.inf to work. So I used "Update Drivers" and selected Select from a list of drivers. From there I chose Microsoft Corporation and RNDIS compatible device. After this and setting up the static IP, ssh works fine.
