I also have the latest Ralink PCI/Cardbus wifi drivers, but no one has asked for them.
Anyone who wants these should reveal their device ID.

For PCI/miniPCI wifi devices, determine device ID with this command -
Code:
lspci -n


For Cardbus wifi devices, determine the device ID with these two commands -
Code:
pccardctl status
pccardctl ident

I have just updated the Ralink rt3572sta USB wifi driver to the latest version 2.5.0.0, and patched it to include support for the Linksys AE1000. The revised dotpet is attached to the earlier post in this thread -

Ralink PCI/Cardbus wifi devices

rt3090sta for RT309X PCIe devices.

rt5390sta for RT5390 PCIe devices.
The first forum request for this driver is suitable for the inbuilt miniPCI card in the Compaq CQ56 laptop.

rt3562sta for RT3060/RT3062/RT3562/RT3592
The first forum request for this driver is suitable for the Sumvision Wireless N PCI card.

After installing either of these dotpets, reboot, and the new driver should be seen in the Network Wizard.

The Orinoco wifi chipset is a very early B-mode wifi device, generally well-supported in Puppy by the standard kernel drivers for PCI and PCMCIA variants.
But the very rare USB variants of this wifi device have only ever been supported by an experimental driver; orinoco_usb
orinoco_usb dotpet now attached.

I obtained the source code from
http://repo.or.cz/w/orinoco_usb.git

The iwlagn driver in Puppy 5.1/5.2 supports a range of Intel N-mode wifi devices, namely the IWL1000/3000/4000/5000/6000 series devices.

Puppy already includes the necessary firmware for most of these devices, but is missing the firmware for the IWL6000 series. I now attach this extra firmware as a dotpet.
Specifically, the firmware included is "iwlwifi-6000-4.ucode" and "iwlwifi-6050-4.ucode"

You may find that Puppy 5.1/5.2 still doesn't support your Intel wifi device, because since the 2.6.33 kernel was released there are now some extra Intel models; IWL6000G2A, IWL6000G2B, and IWL100. You will need to wait for a kernel upgrade before these models are supported.

Puppy already contains suitable drivers for many different brands of gamepad devices, including most Logitech models in the form of the hid-logitech driver. But the "force feedback" function of this driver is not enabled in Puppy.

Now attached is the hid-logitech driver with the force feedback functions enabled, to support the following gamepad devices:
- Logitech WingMan Cordless RumblePad
- Logitech WingMan Cordless RumblePad 2
- Logitech WingMan Force 3D
- Logitech Formula Force EX
- Logitech WingMan Formula Force GP
- Logitech MOMO Force wheel
- Logitech Rumblepad 2 devices

After installing this dotpet, reboot.
Hopefully force feedback will now work. To test, you can install the joystick-utils dotpet, then run this command -
Code:
fftest

The joystick-utils package also contains these utilities:
evtest
inputattach
jstest
jscal
ffset

- Logitech Rumblepad 2 devices

Any change of posting the sources, so I can get it working in 4.2 (for Puppy Arcade?).. Or even a .pet for 2.6.25.16 would be lovely!! Wink

It's the standard kernel source. After running "make menuconfig" go to:
Device Drivers > HID Devices > Special HID drivers >
- Logitech force feedback support (press spacebar to enable)
- Logitech Rumblepad 2 force feedback support (press spacebar to enable)

then do "make modules" as usual. The module name is "hid-logitech.ko"
and it should be placed into
/lib/modules/<kernel version>/kernel/drivers/hid/
replacing the standard version already there.

And if you're going to modify the Logitech gameport driver for force feedback support, you might as well enable the other gameport drivers that support force feedback, namely;
DragonRise
Pantherlord
GreenAsia
SmartJoy
ThrustMaster
Zeroplus

"as usual"... lol, I never done any of that before! I don't even know any commands or parameters I can add after the 'make' command... (Well, I do now! Wink)

But it doesn't look too hard, easy enough I guess, thanks for the info.
Helpful and prompt as always, what would we do without you here?
(We would all have to buy the same hardware, I guess! Smile )

Anyway, I will give it a go.

I will certainly look into more advanced uses of the 'make' command.. (Maybe it will finally help me compile stuff that seems to come with no makefile!)..

sc0ttman and blaarghalltheusernamesare,
if you have further questions about kernel compiling, please create a new forum thread. I would prefer to keep this thread for contributed drivers/applications, not a developers' how-to discussion.

Anyway, good news; I thought that my Puppy 4.1 installation was corrupted, but it seems OK, so I just compiled the force feedback-enabled gameport driver, now available here -
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=500494#500494
In this earlier kernel, gameport support is built into the usbhid driver ... you may have already discovered that the kernel configuration settings are different than what I described for Puppy 5.1.
Only in later kernels was gamepad functionality split out into separate drivers.

Here is the w35und wifi driver,
compatible with the Winbond/ISSC W89C35D wifi chipset, as found in certain Kohjinsha laptops, and in some stand-alone USB wifi devices.
This is one of the "staging" drivers in the kernel source, which was not enabled in the standard Puppy kernel. It's considered "experimental".

After installing this dotpet, reboot.

NOTE: apparently the default frequency settings for this driver are the USA standard.
If you connect to European wifi access points, you must run this command each time before running the Network Wizard:
Code:
iwpriv wlan0 set_region Europe
