Sharp Zaurus USB network connection
Has anyone that owns a Zaurus 5500 pda been sucsessful in setting up a network connection via the usb cradle? Ive tried alot of configurations but it does not seem to work. I am able to ping from XP to the PDA but from the PDA to the internet or even my router I cannot, is there something I am missing? Ive tried changing the gateways which I asume was the problem but that wasnt it.

What does it say on the PDA when you try to ping out of it?
Try pinging 127.0.0.1 see what it says?

When I ping out like my router or google, I recieve destination unreachable. Although when I installed the Z software, it also installed a network adapter, NDIS 5. I am able to ping the adapter from the zaurus and vice versa via ssh. Also the lo adapter on the Z works, pinging localhost and 127.0.0.1 works aswell. I read on some sites that to make it work ICS needs to be on, though windows likes to give me the error, RCP server is unavailable
