Subject description: But, so far, No other 4.3 version Puppies
 

Success seems to be kernel rather than version dependent.
Edit: Feb 2, 2010 -- or maybe just a problem in eMachines. See below:

I have a D-Link WNA 1330 PCMCIA wireless adapter and --per Fios installed wireless router-- must use WEP encryption. The adapter works with "original" Version 2 Puppies using ndiswrapper; Version 3 Puppies, and using the "stock" Atheros drivers under the Version 4.0 thru 4.12 Puppies. I don't recall a problem with Puppies based on Version 4.2.
And it works with "retro" versions of 4.3 puppies using the 2.6.21.7 kernel.
However, as of 1/16/2010, with one exception, it has not worked with any Puppies using the 2.6.30.5 kernel: not with the stock Atheros driver, tempestuous' Madwifi-hal extra, nor attempting to use ndiswrapper. The adapter will see the network, allow me to set parameters using either Network Wizard or pwireless2, but does not connect to the network. Under 431JP (Japanese Edition) based on K2.6.30.5, it is able to connect BUT only by using ndiswrapper with the XP driver.
Note: The Japanese Edition is bilingual Japanese-English, and there is now an sfs providing support for other languages. Both ISO & sfs are available via the below link:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=367516

Edit: 2/2/10 -- Plugged this pcmcia adapter into a Latitude Cpx, booted up Puppy 4.31 and connected to internet using network wizard immediately.

Device: Edimax EW-7108PCg
Puppy versions: 4.3.1 (Nearly Office Pup)
Interface: Cardbus (PCMCIA)
Chipset: RaLink RT2561/RT61
Device Driver:
WiFi Protocols: 802.11b, 802.11g
Security: WEP confirmed, card claims WPA & WPA2 (not tested)
Configured with: Wizard
Posted by: G0XAN, 18/1/2010

This card worked first time with a Toshiba Satellite 1410 laptop.
Note the Cardbus interface is the 32-bit version of PCMCIA, so will not work with (really old) 16-bit PCMCIA slots.

D-Link DWA-125 WiFi USB adapter

According to a number of sources, is built Ralink 2870 chip, but on linux refuses to work with such driver (even with ndiswrapper using valid WinXP driver). However, works great with Patriot's Ralink 3070 modified driver (http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=50059). LameWifi came in handy too!

P.S. big thanks to those, who participated in making these things work on Puppy Linux!

PostPosted: Mon 25 Jan 2010, 19:40    Post subject: Well I will be dipped  

To Jana and ALL the folks that have the USB WIFI blues here is something
you may wish to try.I bought an inexpensive D-Link DWA-130 802.11 N
and tried to get it to work in Puppy 431 K 2.6.30.5 and using the WinXP driver on the CD the best I could get out of Ndiswrapper was "invalid driver" and don't come back Crying or Very sad So doing what I generally do when I'm in over my head I took the rtl8192u.sys file(in the same CD folder) and renamed it rtl8192u.inf and
Ndiswrapper took it like it was good.I then took the net8192u.inf and loaded if with Ndiswrapper and it took that also but complained about
rtl8192u.inf .When I saw the DWA-130 flashing,I knew I was into something.The only problem I had was on scanning as it came up with some of the strangest I.P s so knowing the I.P. address statically I had used on another dongle I entered that I.P.staticly and I am now using it on this post.I am sure there are folks on this forum who are already aware of this but I thought I'd give a shout out.Good Luck

smokey/edoc

You might find upping the firmware sorts the shutdown problem....

http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drivers/ar9170

seems like a good enough choice

edoc, same for the WN111 USB, I think

Version 1/2 software is windoze nomenclature

Note: for any N series you need USB2 or you'll only get 12mb/s data rate instead of 480mb/s....even though advertised as 54mb/s & 150mb/s for 'normal' & 'N' series

see also

http://www.cableforum.co.uk/board/12/33649968-wireless-n-series-router-wnhdeb111.html

for a hint at the numbers game........

What about a "N" adapter in a PCMCIA socket?

I have a Gigafast USB wireless adapter model WF741-UIC. The Linux Driver can be found here, but I do not know what to do with it. How do I install it so I can use it?

Before chasing around using unconfirmed driver sources like a frantic Windows refugee, slow down and check the drivers already available in Puppy.
Under Puppy 4.3.1 the prism2_usb driver should be compatible. If the Network Wizard does not confirm this, then we need to know the USB device ID of your Gigafast WF741-UIC. Please run this command
Code:
cat /proc/bus/input/devices

and post the results.

N series will work OK in a late model pcmcia USB2 socket adapter, but most won't work with early pcmcia slots - later slots aren't really pcmcia at all, they are cardbus
pcmcia is 16bit, cardbus is 32bit

On occasions, my experience has been that in poor reception circumstances the N series switches down to normal 802.11g spec 55mb/s from around 200mb/s
