Here's a patched source for the rtl8180-2400a. It seems it quit working with the 2.6.17 kernel, but somebody patched it. I was able to build this on in 212beta2.

Using rtl8180-pup212.tar.gz I have a LinkSys WPC11 V4 wireless
card working. Dell Latitude PIII laptop running Puppy 2.13

Wireless card works as soon as Puppy is booted. Very Happy

Download rtl8180-pup212.tar.gz;
Select it in Rox filer and unzip it.

Move these files to /usr/bin (there's probably a better place).
ieee80211_cryupt-r8180.ko
ieee80211_cryupt_wep-r8180.ko
ieee80211-r8180.ko
r8180.ko
module_load

Add the following to /etc/rc.d/rc.local
Code:

#this file called from rc.local0
#you can edit this file
#When firewall is installed, will append lines to this file...

cd /usr/bin
/usr/bin/module_load
iwconfig wlan0 essid YourESSID mode managed ap xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx
#      ap xx.xx.xx.xx.xx.xx is your wireless access point
ifconfig wlan0 up
rm /etc/dhcpc/dhcpcd-wlan0.pid
dhcpcd -t 30 -h puppypc wlan0

I wonder if Rarsa could add this to his fabulous networking wizard... Sure would be nice if this could be in the next final Puppy release...

The rtl8180-sa2400 driver for Realtek (as contributed by kirk) has been in Puppy ever since version 2.12.
See http://www.puppyos.net/news/comments.php?y=06&m=11&entry=entry061116-041013
To load this driver, do this -

modprobe r8180

Then you should be able to use the Network Wizard.
This driver supports standard WEP encryption, but not WPA encryption.
