Hello, welcome to the forum.
I hope you can find a solution to your problem.
-----
You need to supply a little more info to find a solution.

Laptop = Asus K43SD

1.Which Xenial version, 32-bit or 64-bit? Your system can run either.

And one more request. Smile
2.Open a terminal window and run the command
Code:
lspci

and paste the results in your reply
That will let us know the exact wifi card you have.

You can cut/paste using the center mouse button when using a terminal window.

Ok will pick up where we left off. This was what we needed to know.

Code:
03:00.0 Network controller: Qualcomm Atheros AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express) (rev 01)


There is a fix for this.
Download the following file and click to install http://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/puppy-xenial/32/atheros_kernel_modules-4.4.95noPAE-xenial32.pet

That was provided from this thread
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=976761#976761

Let us know if you can see the wireless after that. You may need to reboot after installing the file.

Thanks for posting the logs. The firmware is loaded but the drivers are not.

That should have been the correct drivers.
Lets do some checking.

Verify the drivers are now installed by checking the following directory.
lib/modules/4.4.95/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/ath/
You should have the following in the /ath/ directory after installing the atheros_kernel_modules-4.4.95noPAE-xenial32.pet file.
ar5523
ath10k
ath5k
ath9k
carl9170
wcn36xx
wil6210
ath.ko


Also, check to make sure your wireless is turned on. Sometimes there is a physical switch, sometimes it is in BIOS.
Some computers have both. Some computers don't have any.

---------------
Anyone else have suggestions? The following links have what I thought were the solution., 666philb left the atheros 32-bit drivers out of xenial 7.5 32-bit puppy, the drivers were provided by phil here
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=976761#976761

In reference to this same exact issue, this link goes to start of thread where phil posted drivers http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=112286

That fixed the exact same wireless pcie wireless issue
Code:
Network controller: Qualcomm Atheros AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express) (rev 01)

Was the session saved in the save file or save folder after you installed the pet file? The save file/folder dialog appears after first run of puppy
or if there is no save file/folder yet.

When you click on the pet, it installs with the following screens, did the windows show like in the pics?

I'm pretty sure we will figure this out for the 32-bit xenial but yes, the 64-bit version has the drivers and should run fine on your system.

I just installed the pet package in my Xenialpup 7.5

I looked in lib/modules/4.4.95/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/
And I have the ath directory and the drivers inside it.

So, you have to be doing something wrong, when downloading and installing the pet package of the drivers.

Tell us, in specific details, what you do to download and install the driver pet package?

In the console type:
Code:
rfkill list

Post results.
This should tell us if the device is being blocked by anything.

If this is a laptop computer, there is probably a mechanical switch or key combo that turns wifi on/off.
So, Puppy is not going to see it if it is mechanically turned off.

Hi skulqerX,

Looking at your install screens I see differences between the ones you posted and the ones I posted.
I did my install in the same version of xenial so they should be exactly the same.

Your file name is different for the driver package. That is the problem.
The completion screen does not say the pet was installed.
The one I posted has the name of the pet in both screens.

We are dealing with file corruption, the file name is messing it up.

Make sure the file name is exactly atheros_kernel_modules-4.4.95noPAE-xenial32.pet
then do the install. Wink
