Ok, so now I have a new problem. When I search for my wireless network it shows up but I can't maintain a connection. I have all three wireless tools that are included with Xenialpup 7.5. So I configure the modem, it appears to connect, but then no actual data is transmitted to or from my computer, or, the connection breaks. Rebooting doesn't help. I still have a great connection under windows 7. Thanks, Scott

Good chance you missed a step in the setup of the wireless adapter.

This has a lot of steps, but it tells you if something is not done.

Network Wizard wireless connection steps.

1. Select Network Wizard
2. Select wlan0 (your network card may have a different description)
3. Select Wireless in the Configure wireless network box.
4. Select Scan and your ESSID should come up. (your network wireless signal)
5. Select your ESSID and OK
6. Give a name to your profile, or use what is there already.
7. Most people use WPA/TKIP - select it, or wpa2.
8. A box will open for you to write the WPA password. It is called a Shared Key. Enter the password.
9. Leave the other boxes as they are. Rarely do these need adjustment.
9. Select Save
10. Select Use This Profile
11. A box will appear showing Puppy trying to connect
12. A box will come up “REPORT ON TEST 0f wlan0CONNECTION”
13. Select Auto DHCP in the Configure interface box and it will go through a handshake routine. and declare itself successful
14. Select done

If a step does not work.
You do what?
You see what?

Simply too many suppliers and not enough clients.

Ok Bigpup. I followed all of the steps and made a connection. I opened my Palemoon browser and as soon as I attempted to connect with the discussion forum my connection timed out and my internet connection disconnected. I read that there may be issues with Frizbee and that it may run in the background and create this type of problem. Rebooting doesn't work. I hope I don't need to do a fresh install of Xenialpup.

Your turn! Laughing Laughing

In Network Wizard setup.
When you got to this window did you choose set as default?

Any time out settings, in the setup for the wifi router, that is providing the wifi signal?

In the console could try this:

Code:
frisbee --deactivate

Press enter.

The setup should be saved and used when you reboot.

Is Xenialpup a full or frugal install?

If frugal have you made a save?
The save holds all changes you make to Puppy.

If frugal are you using the normal boot option when booting?

If there is a boot menu option that says ram or ram only.
That one tells Puppy to boot and not use the save.

A frugally installed Puppy always loads and runs in ram.

You have to answer all questions!
We only know what you tell us!!

A answer to a specific question is a clue to what is going on.
