Looking to make wireless work on a donated HP crapola desktop...
with the original inbuilt usb wireless.

Tried LXpup 64 and Puppy Bang.

""""""""""

HP Pavilion a6720a

http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=c01618762

LAN: 10-Base-T
802.11 b/g wireless USB adapter card

Pic the link above link of wireless card

Says >> Realtek RTL8201CL

but an old inf from the HP drivers files I kept states >>>

This installation script supports Windows Vista for the
Ralink RT73 series USB Wireless LAN Card.

The download exe. I used from HP states under properties

" Original Lite-On USB Wireless LAN Driver "

Windows 7 devices states >> Lite-On.

Don't you just love variety?

Booted Lucid 529 >> sulu_001.sfs

Updated by Rerwin >> around May 2015

It found HP wireless was

>> wlan0 Wireless rt73usb usb: Raylink 802.11 bg WLAN

Connected straight away.

So part solved...why doesn't LXpup64 connect

as well as Puppy Bang?

Run "dmesg" and check for errors - particularly with the firmware file rt73.bin

Thanks mate...been busy on an ugly HP 110 win8.1 deskstop.

Vista looks like a breath of fresh air versus 8.1 on this HP 110 sludge pot.
Puppy works though...wireless work too.
