HI, I'm mostly new to linux, but I bought an Eee PC 701 4G last year, and I'm fed up of Xandros. I installed Puppeee on it recently, all well and good, but I cannot get the wireless to connect to the WPA network we have. I have tried using the default drivers that load, and the Windows drivers with ndiswrapper, but nothing seems to work. I downloaded the additional drivers in the first post, but have no idea what to do with them. Maybe that will sort it out, but I need to know what to do with them. Thanks.

Does the wireless appear to be functional (ie, can see your wifi router) but just can't connect to it, or does it not work at all?

It can see it, but when I try and connect it times out. We have other PCs connected to it, so it is nothing wrong with the router itself.

make sure your selecting your correct enc mode. the wrong mode will make it timeout. or the driver may not support wpa. its been said and is in bugs of wpa long keys failing to work.

i am going to try those pets you posted and see if dri does indeed become stable.

still a no go on getting these dammed gma cards into dri. the only difference with the new drm module is x just locked up on boot rather then crash when i ran glxinfo. rerunning xorgwizerd like in the guide disabled dri again and even changing the driver back to i915 by hand would not re enable it.t

it just seems i have to wait on a xorg 7.4 puppy or build my own to get things fully supported. thanks for the help for the attempt.

I am selecting WPA, although pwireless or whatever it is, sees it as WEP (which I know it isn't) and the drivers might not support WPA, but the Window's ones do, and I have tried ndiswrapper to use them, but no luck.

heh the distro falls off the front of the fourms and people start asking for a eee puppy. looks like new eeepcs have changed there hardware in the seashell and 701sd. i was kinda avoiding updating until the 5x series came out due to those dri issues. but looks like im gonna have to.

Subject description: with two bug descriptions
 

I have everyting -wireless WPA2- working on my Asus900 in Puppy 4.2.1, the ULTILEX version at

http://ultilex.linux-bg.org/ultilex-4.0.0.iso

after installing this driver and a restart:

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?mode=attach&id=19687

I use a frugal install, ie I boot from thumbdrive

This version also works on the Acer One.

The most annoying bug is that there still does not seem to exist a puppy driver which can handle the wireless of the Asus 1000??

Hopefully that can be solved in Puppy Woof? (the 5 series?)

less annoying bug: the sound volume is very very weak. Even when SGmixer is set at maximum. I do not know if this is a puppy problem or an asus problem but most likely something of puppy since ubuntu, xandros and windows are able to play talk radio without the need of headphones. I have not found a puppy derivative yet which can produce sound at an acceptable volume on my asus 900.

That has been discussed, and explained before
