You need the Realtek r8192ce_pci driver. I posted it last October, here -

Make sure your Puppy version is actually 5.2.8, not 529, otherwise the driver will be incompatible.

Thank you!!! Thank you !!
Posting from the Toshiba on wireless access yipiii. A note to add: I had to use Network Connection Wizard because Simple Network Setup was not able toget a DNS.
Now on to frugal dual boot without disturbing Windows 7!!
Tempestous thank you for your time and patience! I am sure the puppy comunity is very appreciative of your contributions to Puppy.
