tempestuous,
The rt2500 dot pup works fine for me too. It did not seem to need the qt3 pup get either. Once installed, the module gets loaded automagically during the boot sequence. Must find out how.
Did a crude speed comparison by downloading from Mark's dot pup site. The file was 3.3MB. Results:
Code:
rt2500 linux driver
test 1     48 secs
test 2     57 secs
ndiswrapper
test 1     45 secs
test 2     57 secs


There was a reboot betwen tests. I have no idea why the speeds were slower on the second test of each config. The speed would not have been gated by the link speed (ADSL 512Kbps) - should have really done an ethernet download for comparison.
edit 14June - The above comment was totally wide of the mark. Must get my head together some time. Of course the line speed would be the constraining factor. Will try again using local machine to machine transfer some time soon.

Raffy,
The wifi dot pup contains listings of adapters known to be supported by the included drivers. The listings are part of the HowTo.
The list below (extracted from the HowTo) would also relate to tempestuous' rt2500 dot pup that was recently posted. The lists were constructed from an examination of the .inf files, the ndiswrapper wiki and whatever other sources yielded useful stuff.

Quote:
Driver file: rt2500

VID:PID 1814:0201

Ralink RT2500 Wireless LAN Card
ASUS 802.11b/g Wireless LAN Card
ZPlus-G361 802.11g WLAN PCI Adapter
ZPlus-G360 802.11g WLAN mini-PCI Adapter
ZPlus-G160 802.11g WLAN CardBus Adapter.
AT&T Plug&Share 54 Mbps Wireless PCI Adapter
AT&T Plug&Share 54 Mbps Wireless Cardbus Adapter
AMIT 802.11 g Wireless LAN PC Card
AMIT MINI 802.11 g Wireless LAN PC Card
AMIT PCI 802.11 g Wireless LAN PC Card
CastleNet WP1280 802.11 g Wireless LAN Card
Edimax EW-7108 Series 802.11g Wireless LAN PC Card
Edimax EW-7128 Series 802.11g Wireless LAN PCI Card
Hawking HWC54GR Hi-Speed Wireless-G CardBus Card
Hawking HWP54GR Hi-Speed Wireless-G PCI Card
Gigabyte WIKG mini PCI WLAN Card
Gigabyte WMKG Cardbus WLAN Card
Billionton 802.11 b/g Wireless LAN Card
Also 802.11 b/g Wireless LAN Cards from ASUS, AMIGO, QCOM, WLAN


Obviously, not all adapters have been tested as working with Puppy.
There is a list of working adapters (Puppy1) on the wiki. In many cases the identification of adapters is somewhat vague because the maker gives very little information.
How do you think we might consolidate and extend the lists and make them easily accessible?

I finally had a chance to test two cards that have rt2500 chipsets: ASUS WL-107G and Gigabyte GN-WMKG.
<text removed>
These tests where done using the 'standard' Puppy2 kernel. I'll test with my speedstep kernel as soon as I can and report back.


I re-ran the tests using my Puppy2 speedstep-kernel. The cards worked as before. I also tested with the wlan card in the bottom PCMCIA slot and a USB2 adapter card in the upper slot of an IBM Thinkpad T20. The wlan card was almost hidden under the USB card...

Results: Both cards worked fine. I had booted Puppy2 from a USB pen plugged into the USB2 adapter (fast and versatile Smile ). Connection quality went down to 87/100 from 88/100 Wink

Btw, as I am on dial-up, my modem is THE bottleneck and so a throughput test would seem to be meaningless Sad

PostPosted: Tue 13 Jun 2006, 04:39    Post subject: acx100 driver  

Tested the acx100 driver witha D-Link DWL-650+ PCMCIA adapter.
Process was as follows:
    copied the firmware to /lib/firmware and renamed the .bin files as recommended.
    modprobe acx
    this loaded without errors and the card light flashed - presumably as the result of the firmware being downloaded.
    iwconfig .....
    adapter shows as wlan0. as expected
    dhcpcd .....

no association with the router, and the following error message in dmesg:
Code:
wlan0: association FAILED: peer sent response code 18 (Assoc denied: requesting STA doesnt support all data rates in basic set)
get_mask 0x00000000, set_mask 0x00000000 - after update
acx_set_status(0):STOPPED
closed device

Google showed others with the same problem. A similar recent report was found on the Linux Format site.
Close, but no cigar yet....sorry. Any suggestions?
ndiswrapper works okay, but there was a user complaint about peaks of high procesor usage. Not seeing that myself.

I installed the ipw3945 dot.pup and eth0 was created but I am not able to configure the device using ifconfig or iwconfig because when I use these commands for setting essid and the key it says the operation is not allowed.

Any thoughts?

Thanks

Sounds about right. Let's check the exact details - according to http://acx100.erley.org/acx_fw/acx1xx.htm -
RADIO11.BIN renamed to tiacx100r11 and
WLANGEN.BIN renamed to tiacx100

... but there's a report here http://sourceforge.net/forum/forum.php?thread_id=1513980&forum_id=257272
that there's a different DWL-650+ (with Maxim radio) which needs different firmware.
dmesg will show "requesting firmware image 'tiacx100c0D'" The critical part is "0d" If so, you need -

ACX100.bin renamed tiacx100 and
RADIO0d.BIN renamed tiacx100r0d

smog,
I need more information, like the output of dmesg after each step ...
but are you sure that eth0 is your wifi interface? It might be your LAN interface.
eth1 might be what you need.

tempestuous

Thanks for responding so fast.

I have tried to bring up both eth0 and eth1 but neither works.

I have copied a bit of the dmesg output which seems to refer to the IPW3945.

If you could try to point me in the right direction I would really appreciate it because I love Puppy but I need to use wireless.

Thanks again.

dmesg output is:

ieee80211_crypt: registered algorithm 'NULL'
ieee80211: 802.11 data/management/control stack, 1.1.13

When I try to set the essid I get:
# Error for wireless request "set ESSID" (8B1A) :
SET failed on device eth0 ; Operation not supported.

eth1 gives the same result except the final comment is "No such device"

First give us details of your hardware - laptop brand and model, and internal wifi adaptor model, if known.
Boot up, but don't modprobe the driver yet.

1. Run "ifconfig". Report.
2. Run "iwconfig". Report.
3. Load the driver - "modprobe ipw3945" and run "dmesg". Report.
4. Run "ifconfig". Report.
5. Run "iwconfig". Report.

Success! Very Happy
The DWL-650+ adapter has the original acx100 hardware. It is now working. My problem was that there were two versions of WLANGEN.BIN sculling around, and I was using the wrong one.
Thanks, tempestuous for your patience. Smile
For others who have the DWL 650+ adapter:
    After you have installed acx100-20060215.pup
    download the two files ....RADIO11.BIN and .....WLANGEN.BIN_1.9.8.b (the full names are much longer) from the section labelled dlink_dwl650+ at http://acx100.erley.org/acx_fw/acx1xx.htm
    Move or copy the files to /lib/firmware
    rename WLANGEN.BIN to tiacx100
    rename RADIO11.BIN to tiacx100r11
    now you can use modprobe acx; iwconfig... and either dhcpcd or ifconfig etc. as outlined in the dot pup readme.


This driver supports a wide range of TI-based adapters, but each needs its own firmware, making the install process a bit trickier than for some others. I should know, having fallen into at least one trap.

Tempestuous

My laptop is a Samsung Q35 Centrino Duo. As far as I can tell, I assume the wireless card is an Intel PRO 3945ABG, is there any other card on Centrino?

The outputs from the commands you want are included below.

I have got my Q35 working using the IPW3945 linux driver in Ubuntu, which I am using now, so I hope I can get it working in Puppy too.

Thanks for your input.

Hope this is enough info.:

PostPosted: Wed 14 Jun 2006, 21:16    Post subject: Speed comparison  

Checked out transfer speeds between machines using an rtl8180-based adapter (802.11b). Each test was run just twice; the file transferred was 4995KB; one machine attached via ethernet to the router, the machine using wireless was 3m from the router. Results:
Code:
r8180 driver     17 secs
ndiswrapper      16 secs

Given that the timing was done by simple observation, there does not seem to be a really significant difference in speed under those conditions. Rate was around 300KB/sec or 2.5Mbps, a long way below the rated speed of the wireless adapter - but not unexpected.

dmesg shows these 2 lines -
Code:
b44.c:v0.97 (Nov 30, 2005)
...
eth0: Broadcom 4400 10/100BaseT Ethernet 00:00:f0:7f:0f:0e


As I suspected, eth0 is your ethernet adaptor, a Broadcom BCM4400 series. Puppy has loaded the opensource b44 module for it ... which may not work. You might need the proprietary bcm4400 driver ... but that's another story.

And I just read about an important extra step which is not included in the README. So try this -

modprobe ipw3945
## now we need to start the regulatory daemon
/sbin/ipw3945d
## now bring up the wifi interface - eth1 in your case
ifconfig eth1 up

Now run ifconfig and iwconfig to see if eth1 looks healthy. If so, continue to set up the connection with "iwconfig eth1 ..."

PostPosted: Thu 15 Jun 2006, 06:29    Post subject: hostap and dhcpcd...  

Hi,

My question is how the hostap driver works with prism2/2.5 cards.
~# ifconfig wlan0 up
~# iwconfig wlan0 mode Managed essid test key 1:2:3:4:5:6
ok, then
~# dhcpcd wlan0 hangs,
~# dhcpcd wifi0 works.

I can connect to AP's, but not manually. All i know is, that starting WAG at this point, then push 'Toggle DHCP' works.. I wanted to know how i can get it to work from the console (which commands) yust to learn something about whats happening here.

Do you have any experience ?

There are two amendments I need to make to the hostap_README -
1. after "modprobe hostap_cs" run "ifconfig wlan0 up"
2. before running dhcpcd do this - "rm /etc/dhcpc/*.pid"

Now "dhcpcd wlan0" might work OK (?).
Or, keenerd could jump in and tell us what WAG does differently.

With Linux wifi drivers, "wifi0" is usually a "placeholder" or "virtual interface" for the true interface.
