Subject description: Answer is wlan0 in scripts (i had to change to eth0)
 

Old Puppy TouTou 431 with Old Acer 2004 PeasyWifi still does it version 3.4. (frisbee installed as default does the job too)

PostPosted: Fri 06 Mar 2015, 09:00    Post subject: English is easier than technical jargon
Subject description: We are offered choices we don't know what they mean
 

My first tries were wih PeasyWifi 2.8 and i kept the pet in a computer, and i am testing old Puppies on another one. Pwireless is included but don't keep connected as well as Frisbee or PeasyWifi.
Last version was 3.4. But too many options loose me. I will explain it better later.
The problem is the choices are clear for people used to network tool, but we don't ever understand words, not because they are in english, because we don't see what is is.
SSID DNS adressmac.. SNCF DDR DFDR SDF SFR....
Pet 3.4 installed. I can give precise example : wlan0 unknown, my wireless connection is eth0. What am i supposed to change ?

I recognize the problem with technical words and non-English languages.

PWF has two sources for help - the Help button on the first screen and the More button that links to the forum. It would be great if someone could translate them.

However, I don't see how PWF got more difficult to understand between v2.8 and v3.4.

This is explained in the Help.

It does not work, so you search why
Your are right, the version is not the cause. Wireless name wlan0 unknown (eth0 is the one) . That is certainly the reason.
Nevertheless, Peasywifi should not need tha name of the wireless code.
Pwireless only show reds found, you click on yours, and click connect.
But I don't forget my opinion, Peasywifi was and will remaint the easiest way to connect... Untill you find for eth0, my change with geany was unsuccesfull.
When Mummy will succeed to connect, we shall go and have a break. On the forum, you are all technicians, it looks easy for you, but it's not easy job for us. I have time enough to insist, but a lot of newcomers would not even post in the forum.
Confused poor rcrscn, you do your best, and you are the one we 'cassons les pieds'. Merci for all the stuff Pxxxxx.Great job.

I GOT IT ! peasywifi takes the power.
Nevertheless, Pwireless was easier (unstable too much)

Here is an example. Your computer has two wireless adapters - an internal adapter that does not work in Puppy and an external USB adapter that does work.

Using the configuration file, you can permanently select the USB adapter. You don't need to choose from a menu each time you want to connect.

I'm sure that the Wizard, SNS, Frisbee, etc. have their own way of handling this situation. PWF does it through its configuration file.

Subject description: your explanations were enough to understand where to modify
 

Hum, ... usb adaptor, yes, it could be...
Bon, during the session, i reconnect several times for training. Scan and choose my operator between three. I am pleased. That is the way i like.
Now, keeping the connexion when reboot is done, PeasyWifi starts, but fails.
I run Molinux zero puppy 420 from Spane.
Acer laptop 1640 (2004) module inte ipw2200

your explanations were enough to understand where to modify
i just feedback my remarks, if 95% of users don't complain, you don't have to change for some persons, as Pelo.
It's not perfect, but PEASYWIFI is a nice tool, But Puppy has still a littlestep to do to reach the automatic connection. (Saluki would be the must in Puppy, connection is very easy and permanent)

Auto-connection always works for me, so you need to provide more information.

1. What does the Status button say?

2. Does manual connection work after auto-connection fails?

3. Do you have the same problem in newer Puppies?

PostPosted: Tue 10 Mar 2015, 14:48    Post subject: No info in running process.  

3 Questions
1 Status button : there is no icon peasywifi anywhere. Tonight computer ha connected without i do anything. I suppose Peasywifi is the Tool, because connection is stable. (remember i Changed wlan0 by eth1
in configuration script).
2 Manual connection : ok
3 PeasyWifi usually does the job, but sometimes NO; I will precise distros when playing them
Reboot > wireless is transfered to eth0 and does not work at all. It's late. I will advise to-morrow (it's just a challenge, but it shoul do it each time)

On old 4.x Puppies, the tray icon may not work. You must run PeasyWiFi from the Network menu, or make a desktop shortcut.

If you have set PeasyWiFi to auto-connect, look in the file /root/Startup/peasywifi_auto. It may need a "sleep" like

Code:
sleep 5
peasywifi xxxxx

Did your computer switch eth0 and eth1 on its own?

PostPosted: Tue 10 Mar 2015, 20:43    Post subject:  Just to clarify my ideas
Subject description: and yours
 

I was lost myself : in fact i was offered an old laptop Acer 1640 (Windows XP) I intended to train myself running old Puppies :
Now Molinux Zero (pup 411)
Newyearspup pup 411 too
And Dpup squeeze 5......

Newyearsup PeasyWifi runs nice, and is now connected without my help. I changed the config to eth0 sleep 15. You found the words, this Puppy was switching eth0 and eth1 as wireless at each reboot. (switching is the right word)
It seems resolved. And the tray icon works. Nice Very Happy

Molinux zero : PeasyWifi se lance (executes) arriving desktop but fails. Training makes me progress. I think i am finding the way to correct the default now. i Removed PeasyWifi 3.4. I will re-install it and do tries again. Not To-day, i don't know. It's a game, a challenge, but some important work is going (en retard).

Oldies : 2009 with 99MB and more apps than nowadays. Look is vintage, sure. [b] PeasyWIFI Version 3.4
