a method to know the wifi signal? in the Network Wizard scan when the signals are listed if you mouse over it shows "Frequency" and at the end "G" is this what I have been searching for? does anyone with an N show an "N"? mine are all G.

frequency is 2.4xxxG
perhaps looking for frequency 40.xxxN?

lupu525 does N connect but mouse-over signal in network wizard doesnt show anyinfo after frequency.
quick tests show 529 fails to connect for N wifi. so that is drake03, luci529 and slacko beta1 that fail to usb wifi N connect. is it a kernel thing? going to re-check puppeee for N wifi now.
puppee doesnt have network wizard and frisbee fails to show any signals for wifi N. when wlan is switched off in the bios, puppeee will switch wlan on again during boot. so difficult to see things truely. frisbee wont connect anything while N wifi is plugged in.

The G at the end of frequency just means Gigahertz.

I just downloaded it.

Use save as.

And then rename it.

Ralink N150 Wireless>> rename to inf
instead of zip

= rt2870.inf

Clicking on it >> comes up as text.

Don't know if this'll help or not and don't know if it's been mentioned but walmart.com sells Belkin USB wireless adapters for $12.96 ($15.06 shipped Fed-Ex) that work right out of the box with Puppy. I have two older machines running on two different models of the cheapie and they use the same driver. Also worked wih Ubuntu if it matters. They may not be the droids you're looking for, but they're cheap and work like a charm.



.....one thing though. If you use them you have set your wireless network up with WAP security. I banged my head sore trying to get them to work with WEP and NO DICE! That dog don't hunt. Nearly thirty reinstalls (full installs) later and I finally tried the WPA settings just for giggles and it fiiiiiiiiiiiinally worked.

Good luck and don't give up on Puppy.

I just got a Netgear N150 Wireless USB Adapter (Netgear WNA1100) for my little Linux machine, and I want to use a form of Puppy Linux on the machine, but I can't use the adapter and get on the internet on the machine, unless I use a CAT5 wired connection, but that gets in the way in the house and I could possibly damage the wire, which would waste me some money.

This kind of question has probably been answered before, but I don't know if they've been answered for this adapter. I would put Ubuntu or Xubuntu on the machine, which automatically recognizes the adapter, but they seem to run slower and I want to put Puppy Linux on it, but can't for this problem. I do have the CD since I just bought the thing, so if that is required in any way, please let me know.

Thank you.


My NetGear N150 WNA1100 USB is working on Lucid Puppy 5.25 without any extra download/configuration. I used ndiswrapper driver (attached here http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=47367&start=75 and with this post).

It should work for you also. In my case it is working with best security options (I think) -- WPA2 with PSK (pre-shared key). After the N150 was successfully detected and configured, I unplugged the CAT5 cable from NIC card and re-run the Network Connection Wizard, (chose WPA2 (same as in my ADSL router) and provided the PSK) and it is working without any problem.

My NetGear N150 WNA1100 USB is working on Lucid Puppy 5.25 without any extra download/configuration.

First, the addition of a Windows driver is, by definition, an "extra download".

Second, forum member Lotica already confirmed on the first page of this thread, two months ago,
that the Netgear WNA1100 works fine with the ath9k_htc driver under Fluppy-013,
and since then we know that this driver also works in several other recent Puppy versions, most notably Lucid-5.29 beta - "Three-Headed Dog".

I would have thought that was a far more elegant solution than to use an older version of Lucid, with a kludgey workaround like ndiswrapper.
