More information about this modification is here -

I've installed Puppy4, and tried to load sis900 module (mi old pc has this one), but it's not working.
Do you know if there is a pup of this module, or how can I create it?

thanks.

pd: the ethernet adapter works fine with puppy 3.x


well I would follow the detail instructions located on the page you posted and if you get any errors maybe post them here, you'll need the devx_400.sfs or pet package I made installed to do it.

Here is the ipw3945 module for Puppy 3.x and Puppy 4.0 compiled with monitor and radiotap support.
The standard ipw3945 module in Puppy does not have these features enabled.

This module should now create the additional interfaces "rtap0" and "wifi0", which will allow it to be used with aircrack-ng. Here is a HOWTO -
http://en.tuxero.com/2007/08/howto-crack-wep-sony-vaio.html
This HOWTO refers to a distribution called "wifiway-0.6" which contains a completely rewritten version of the ipw3945 module called "ipraw".

To get the rtap0 interface, the module needs to be unloaded, then reloaded -
Code:
rmmod ipw3945
modprobe ipw3945 rtap_iface 1


... it might also be necessary to put the device into monitor mode, I'm not sure. If so, the commands would be -
Code:
rmmod ipw3945
modprobe ipw3945 mode 2 rtap_iface 1

Here is the "r8101" ethernet driver for the new Realtek RTL8101E and RTL8102E(L) chipsets, as found on the Intel D945GCLF miniITX motherboard.
The source code is from http://www.realtek.com.tw
Puppy's r8169 module will try to claim this ethernet device, so this package includes a suitably modified /etc/rc.d/MODULESCONFIG file with the r8169 module added to the SKIPLIST.
After installing this package, reboot. Then the r8101 module should automatically appear in the Network Wizard.

Thanks to Tempestuous, my Acer Aspire One with the arhteros ar5007eg wireless works perfectly with his madwifi pet in Dingo 4.1. Network boot must be disabled in bios.

This is the Xp model with one gig of ram and a 120 gig hard drive. This thing flies with the new Puppy! I could not be more pleased.

PostPosted: Fri 26 Dec 2008, 11:11    Post_subject:  Eee PC Security WiFi connection problem
Sub_title: Can anyone help?
 

I am a newb at Linux so please be kind. I recently purchased a Asus Eee PC 1000 and immediately was compelled to ditch Xandros. Xandros was helpful in informing me that the WiFi card/chip installed on this PC is a RaLink RT2790. Driver link - http://www.ralinktech.com/ralink/Home/Support/Linux.html. I currently have the PC configured with Grub4dos and am able to boot into WinXP, Ubuntu Eee and several flavors of Puppy as well as some other utilities thrown in. I have tried probably a dozen different pupplets but really have become most attached to both of Grey's creations of BoxPup and NOP v4xx.

Now to my issue. No matter which pupplet I use it seems that the WiFi connection has problems with connecting to a secured network, both WEP and WPA. Xandros connected fine as well as WinXP and Eee Ubuntu. Puppy can connect fine to any unsecured network but with a secured connection it seems to fail. This has been the case on several different locations and routers. I am hoping someone else may have experienced this or have some ideas. I found this link "http://forum.eeeuser.com/viewtopic.php?pid=174146" on a group but have not tried it yet. Kind of hoping someone else can verify. Sorry for the lengthy background and description but wanted to give enough about the problem to be helpful. Any help would be much appreciated as I am becoming a huge Pup Fan.

The correct Linux driver for your Eee 1000 is the "rt2860sta" which is standard in all Puppy 4.1.x versions.
But this proprietary driver may require the ieee80211 cryptographic modules to be pre-loaded before wifi encryption will work. So do this before attempting an encrypted wifi connection -
Code:
modprobe ieee80211_crypt
modprobe ieee80211
modprobe ieee80211_crypt_wep
modprobe ieee80211_crypt_tkip
modprobe ieee80211_crypt_ccmp


If still no success, load these additional encryption modules -
Code:
modprobe arc4
modprobe ecb
modprobe crypto_blkcipher
modprobe aes_generic
modprobe crc32c

tempestuous,

Thanks for the super quick response and attempt to help. Here is a shot. It seems one of the commands did not take. Not sure if that is relevant. I do have the rt2860sta driver in this puplet (NOP v4.1.2). All works fine if I remove security from my router. Strange?

DaveS,
Thanks for the help. It worked great! I now have conky running.
If I could just get this issue with the WiFi security going I could go to bed and get the rest this old body needs. Smile

HaMMeR, sorry, a simply typo on my part. It should be "modprobe ieee80211_crypt_tkip". The ieee80211_crypt_tkip module is necessary for WPA1 encryption (ieee80211_crypt_ccmp is for WPA2 encryption).
Even if WPA encryption still fails for you, I suggest you change your wifi router's encryption setting to WEP just as an experiment. It would be good to know if the rt2860sta driver can at least handle the most basic form of encryption.

tempestuous,
I should have seen the pattern and figured out what was meant in your code. Sorry, I am a newb at this.

Tried it after running the 1st group of commands (WPA Personal) with no success. Then ran the 2nd group of commands and still no success. Then changed my router to WEP 10 hex and still no success. Then disabled security totally on my router and had success. I might be inclined to suspect my router since I run a non-standard firmware on it. I use Tomato rather than the LinkSys factory firmware. Thing that makes me think it must be in the Puppy driver is that I experienced these same results at other locations (friends of whom have factory default firmware with basic security and also at free WiFi locations) as well as the fact that EeeUbuntu, Xandros, and Windows all work fine here. So I keep thinking there must be some tweak on the driver or Puppy system to fix.

tempestuous,

thanks for all your work on wireless cards.

I recently had to drop back from a 4.1.1 frugal installation to a 4.1.1 retro frugal. I found that my cd/dvd drives weren't working well with the later kernel, and also Wine was less stable.

Unfortunately my wireless card stopped working once I switched to retro

It's an Edimax EW-7108PCG cardbus card which uses the Ralink RT2561 chips.

It used to work fine with the RT2561/RT61 module under the later kernel.

Under the retro kernel, only the RT61 module is available, and this one won't work with my card.

Is there a way I can run the RT2561/RT61 module under retro (now at 4.1.2) to enable this card?

Thanks, again for your help.

Actually that would be the "rt61pci" module.

No.

The older "rt61" module has been reported as working fine in the past.
Check to see if encryption is the issue - disable encryption at your wifi router and see if you can make a connection in this unencrypted state.
