I did a second try today, but couldn't get it working either.... Anyone else perhaps?

On a 3rd try I've been able to browse the web on the DR1000. It turned out to be a lot simpler than I thought. The mistake I made was executing the "route add.." command before setting up usbnet instead of after.

All the steps to get it working on my machine (Ubuntu 11.04):

Only needed once:
- Download Midori from here (thanks to dixon for porting this) and copy to SD.
- Edit /etc/resolv.conf on your DR (use the same settings as on the host).

Needed every time:
- Use the scripts from dima_tr to set up usbnet on the DR and the host.
- Do "route add default gw 192.168.200.1" on the DR.
- Start Midori from the Programs folder :)

You can also add the last command (adding to routing table) to the usbnet2 script from dima_tr (after ifconfig) to make things easier.

Thanks for finding and publishing the detailed steps. Currently I do not have any time to play with this, but I will do in the future.

it depends what you mean by "trick", if it is to connect to the internet, the first thing you have to get working is usbnet, there are different versions for the DR1000 and the DR800,


on the XP side I believe that you will be able to communicate with the device using the driver

from post 19

alternatively, see
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...=usbnet&page=2
post number 19 and 21

before launching midori, it is important to follow all the steps described in the previous post on the DR and to try to ping to say www.google.com to check if IP forwarding is working
