Puppy 213 and wireless worked for me really well (using ndiswrappwer)
v214 now has a driver for my wireless card, which it it detected - but does not work Smile
NDISWRAPPER does not seem to work at all, and neither will the script AUTOSCAN my wireless network settings.
Anyone else having similar problems?For now, for me, it is back to 213

You should tell us your wifi device (brand, model, revision) and which driver Puppy loaded.
But I suspect it's the Broadcom bcm43xx ... if so, the firmware is missing so the driver won't work. Firmware available soon.

There's another thread on the bcm43xx. You can prevent the driver from loading at bootup, and use ndiswrapper as before.
