Puppy is not finding the WiFi on my Dell E4300 laptop, which is a bit of a nuisance as Windows has just packed up on it...
wlan0 simply does not show up on any of the network tools.

The Hardware Information tool tells me it is a Broadcom BCM 4322, and there is a builtin kernel driver: b43-pci-bridge.

I cannot easily plug that machine into the internet, so if someone can suggest a solution where I can download a file to here and transfer it to there, rather than having to download it from there, then that would be ideal...

You probably need the Broadcom vendor wifi driver,

For slacko64-6.3.0 you will need the "4.1.11 64bit kernel" version.
