sigmatel irda usb dongle, how do i set it up?
Hi i bought a sigmatel usb dongle and i've no idea how to set it up. I looked through a few of the tutorials but there wasnt much help. when i plug it in and do dmesg i get
usb 3-1: USB disconnect, address 3
usb 3-1: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 4
usb 3-1: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
SigmaTel STIr4200 IRDA/USB found at address 4, Vendor: 66f, Product: 4200
drivers/net/irda/stir4200.c: IrDA: Registered SigmaTel device irda0
as the last few lines, i've got irda-utils... but now i'm stuck, one of the tutorials referred to /etc/modprobe.conf and said it should have the usual stuff in it. What's the usual stuff? any help appreciated.
