Re: New source for rtl8180-2400a
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.
Select it in Rox filer and unzip it.
Move these files to /usr/bin (there's probably a better place).
Add the following to /etc/rc.d/rc.local
#this file called from rc.local0
#you can edit this file
#When firewall is installed, will append lines to this file...
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
dhcpcd -t 30 -h puppypc wlan0

The rtl8180-sa2400 driver for Realtek (as contributed by kirk) has been in Puppy ever since version 2.12.
To load this driver, do this -
Then you should be able to use the Network Wizard.
This driver supports standard WEP encryption, but not WPA encryption.
