I'm first going to tell you what others will likely tell you: you need to provide more detail about what model you have and what you've done so far to try to get it working Smile

Having said that, I have gotten my Belkin FD7050 USB wireless card to work with Puppy. First, you either need to install the Perl dotpup (I think, can't remember at the moment) or the development file (usr_devx.sfs) in order to make ndiswrapper work. You'll also need the Windows driver files for your adapter. (All of this is based on the FD7050 and Puppy 1.0.5, which is the version I've used.)

From the menu, you'll need to run WAG (the Wireless wizard) so you can install the driver files and ndiswrapper. Based on my own experience, I will tell you that getting the initial connection each time you boot Puppy is a bit of a bear, but eventually, it does work. Good luck!

Now that you point it out to me, the answer seems painfully obvious.
