Your Puppy version and all hardware specs allow magic to happen.

It works in Ubuntu...so it should in Lucid.

So supply all specs.
No good giving you a more recent Puppy and it is slower.

3 headed Dog might work out of the box.

" Three-Headed Dog is based on Lucid 5.2.8 but with the
2.6.37.6 kernel from Slacko 5.3.1.
Some newer computers might work better with 3HD than with
Lucid 5.2.8.005. "

I used it yesterday to fix wireless on my daughters PC
with a wireless dongle...it had issues in Windows.

thanks for the speedy response, have tried the 3hd but still the same problem, fails to find the network and wireless cards. I am using a Samsung laptop with an i5-3210m 2.5 GHz processor. it is a 64 bit system.
Any further ideas

Have tried Precise 5.6.1 and 5.7.1 on a few Acer and Asus
relatively new laptops in the last week.
Both use Atheros wireless versions and both connected
easily using the wireless connection wizard.
