The Blitzz wireless usb stick works for me. I believe I used ndiswrapper with the .inf and .sys files that came with the stick

Hi - Netgear WG111 works OK for me - needs ndiswrapper and the windows driver disc for the .inf etc files.
If you have the windows drivers many will work with ndiswrapper.

Just installed a d-link dwl g122 ver B (rt2500 chipset) usb using windows inf file only (NetRTUSB .inf) with onboard puppy ndiswrapper & ethernet wizard.

Works A-1, stable & at rated (g) speed of 54Mbps with puppy ver 2.12, live cd setup.

Lap is a gateway mx 3410 with amd turion 64 TL-50
---------------------------------
ps. tried out the emoticons, clicked on one, ended up at dead page & lost my note. Anyone know what that's about?

jonyo,

The rt2570 usb wifi is supported in puppy, just modprobe rt2570.

Ralink is very well supported in linux.

Just to add to my own note (work in progress..) the d-link mentioned here has now worked A-1 on 3 laptops & 1 desktop that i've tried so far, all running live cd pup ver 2.12. Other machines (lap) are Gateway m-520 & Acer Travelmate 2420. Don't have the desktop info other than think it's a Systemax L335 that came preloaded with Linspire.

Might you have the exact info for the Netgear wg 111? As i understand, there are different versions.

Anyone try one of these (or have info)?
