My friend Mike who is now a user of tahrpup 6 due to my efforts has a new wireless usb n adapter he wants to use with tahrpup 6 non pae. It is 300 mbps and 2.4 gh usb 2 IEEE 802.11b/g/n and has channel 13 spread spectru dsss ofdm/cck/15-qam/64 qam. operating system xp dual boot with tahrpup celeron desktop with 895 mb ram and ext 3 8GB partition and the adapter supports linux with driver and wpa supplicant supplied. How do i make the wireless work. do i have to compile the driver and use wpa supplicant or can i use wireless wizards with the driver? Please let me know how to proceed to get wireless adapter to work with tahrpup and he has it working on windows.

Need make and model of adapter.

For wireless connection
(This guide is a little old, but it gives you general steps)
Illustrated Guide to setting up a wireless network connection.
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=65346
Follow this guide.
If you get to a step that does not work.
What step?
What do you see?

We need specific details of what happens.
You are our eyes, we only know what you tell us.

Also, you need to go back to that other topic, of yours, and tell the people, who helped you, what happened.

I thought Flash was asking about this matter.

In my usual diplomatic way I said amongst other observations....

I do not know yet how to get the sprint modem working.

It certainly appears that your Sprint Aircard modem MIGHT work with the sierra driver already contained in Puppy, but details are hard to find on the web. 2 good links are -
http://kb.netgear.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/22827/~/can-i-use-my-netgear-aircard-modem-on-a-linux-operating-system-%28v.1.7.40%29%3F
http://mycusthelp.net/SIERRAWIRELESS/_cs/AnswerDetail.aspx?sSessionID=&aid=5
but you will see that your model is not listed. So I can't help with this device.

linux has a driver that is on the disk and it looks like i might have to compile tahrpup kernel to add the driver

Yes, that will be source code for one of the vendor-supplied Realtek wifi drivers.
Other forum members have already compiled some of these drivers ... but we can only guess which particular driver is needed until we know the USB device ID of your wifi adapter. So we need you to plug the USB wifi adapter into a computer which is running Puppy, then open a terminal and run this command -
Code:
lsusb

From the list of USB devices, you should be able to see the wifi adapter, then just tell us the vendor/product number, which will be in the format xxxx : xxxx.
From this we will know exactly which Realtek driver is required ... and I can probably point to a driver that has already been posted on the forum.

OK, you need the 8192cu vendor-supplied Realtek wifi driver, which forum member rcrsn51 compiled and posted here -
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=100675

Of the 8 versions rcrsn51 posted, the Tahrpup version is strictly compatible with the "PAE" version of Tahrpup 6.0.2.
If you insist on using the "noPAE" version of Tahrpup 6.0.2, then you will need to compile this driver yourself.

Interestingly, that USB device ID is supported in modern Puppies by the qcserial driver (not the sierra driver as I had assumed) but I see there are several different definitions of this device ID specified by the qcserial driver, so it's still unclear whether your Sprint Aircard is supported.

I did some more Googling about the AirCard 771S, and I saw some Linux developers commenting about errors with the device's onboard firmware, so I think you should upgrade the AirCard's firmware to the latest version available from Netgear -
http://support.netgear.com/product/AirCard%2B771S%2B$28Sprint$29
Download "Sprint AC771S Firmware Upgrade (Windows)"
and run the .exe under Windows.
