Tried that driver under 431, no joy.

HardInfo sees the device but when I manually load the module in Network Wizard (old or new) it fails to see the device.

WDYT?

doc, apparently there are different versions

r3 is not supported, apparently

Its for a Belkin N FSD8053 r3 for
which there are no Linux drivers. ndiswrapper works perfectly but only when 4K stack sizes are disabled


http://article.gmane.org/gmane.linux.redhat.fedora.freeworld/2148

this was a bugthread dated 2008-05-13, so may have changed

ndiswrapper + The files are rt2870.inf rt2870.sys froom windoze, or see *buntu thread, they appear to have it working

Well the Belkin FSD8053 appears to be a very recent device, and Google doesn't return many hits about its chipset.

To be more definite about the appropriate driver, we need to know the exact device ID.
edoc, please plug in the wifi device, then run this command -
Code:
cat /proc/bus/usb/devices

and look for the wifi device. Please report its "Vendor" and "ProdID" values.

Does Radio Shack - in the USA - sell a 431-compatible USB or PCMCIA b/g/n nic?

I am thinking of bringing a 431 laptop in and asking them to test nics until they have one they can sell me that really works.

Driving 2 hours round-trip to the city only to discover that the Best Buy Belkin nic isn't compatible is a waste of time and money.

Buying them over the Internet has not worked either since manufacturers switch chipsets without warning all the time.

WDYT?

doc
If the guys at Radioshack will let you try various PCMCIA/USB wifi modules till you get a linux friendly one,....
then persuade them to ADVERTISE IT at the desk!!
I'm sure they'd sell hundreds more!
You could even be cheeky, & ask for commission as their tester Wink

Alternately here's a post I made earlier, for a USB aerial booster device, at around $17 freepost, which uses Realtek RTL8187L driver, which puppy has built-in

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=336193#336193

There's also an ebay link, now out of date but the seller still stocks/sells them, as well as plenty other stuff

AFAIK there are still a few issues with 802.11n devices in linux.....see *buntu forums

good luck

You seem to have an uncanny ability to find the most leading-edge hardware.
Fortunately in this case there's a driver available.

Yes, it does seem to be my "curse" to get unsupported or just-being-supported hardware!

Hopefully that means it will not be obsolete too soon. Smile

It does not work under 4.21 but does work under 4.31

THANKS!!!

That should be self-evident. The r8192s_usb driver was compiled for the 2.6.30.5 kernel in Puppy 4.3,
it's attached to the forum thread titled "Extras for Puppy 4.3 with 2.6.30.5 kernel"
and the attachment contains this field: "Description for Puppy 4.3"

Notes & Issues:needs two drivers - Network Wizard only allows one

Being a Linux noobie it was a struggle to get it working, Google was my best ally. Together we found this nugget on the Ndiswrapper at SourceForge:
"With ndiswrapper version 1.7 (and later), ......, install both neta5agu and athfmwdl drivers. With that, ndiswrapper will load the firmware when necessary. " which was puzzling because the only version the Ndiswrapper Project was offering for download was v1.55 - the same version 431 includes. And Network Wizard only allows 1 driver per module!!

More searching and we found this, which I concluded was basically what NW was doing under the covers.

Long story short - first I manually installed the firmware driver in Ndiswrapper - athfmwdl, and then I faked-out NW by lying about it in the Ndiswrapper dialogs and letting NW install netA5AGU.

The wizard then did his magic and wlan0 appeared and all was simple clickery from there on - almost.

Network apps failed to connect. Checking with ifconfig - it showed a weird IP-address. It seems NW had naively trusted DHCP in their negotiations.

I confirmed that my D-Link DI-624 router had the latest firmware and as a last resort shutdown all nodes on my home network including the router and cable-modem and rebooted them. When I asked NW to negotiate with DHCP for a new IP address he obliged and all is working.http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=366859#366859

PostPosted: Mon 07 Dec 2009, 23:48    Post_subject: So, I seriously need some help.
Sub_title: OLD LAPTOP HELP
 

I (because of lack of money) own a Fujitsu Lifebook (circa 1992 I believe) and I got sick of windows on it, so decided to put Puppy 4.31 on. Well, first off, I can't get the damn thing to install, secondly, I can't configure my wireless usb adapter. The install might just not ever work (although it says the files are in fact installed, when I try to boot it says Operating System Not Found) but I should be able to run my wireless on a cd boot, right?

My adapter is an Actiontec USB. It's model number is 802AIn, here's the link to the page:
http://www.actiontec.com/products/product.php?pid=196

I'm sorry I'm not much more help. but I'm really a linux noob when it comes to anything but Ubuntu, or Mint. Any Ideas? I got this guide, but it didn't help:
http://www.wikihow.com/Set-up-a-Wireless-Network-in-Puppy-Linux

The system itself has around 64mb of ram, and a 4gb hard drive. No wifi, , no USB2.0, not even an ethernet port, had to purchase a LAN card. (Sad and old, I know. It also doesn't have a battery!)

Thanks in advance for your time!

P.S. no advice like "Buy a new laptop" please. If I had money, I would, trust me.
