I don't know if it helps, but booting Lubuntu 17.10 I get this message:
Code:

prism2_usb 2-2:1.0 (unnamed net_device) (uninitialized): hfa384x_drvr_start() failed,result=-5


Edit: This is a JVC laptop.

Subject description: prism2_usb ndiswrapper WPA
 

Both of those error messages look like failed attempts to get the wifi interface to establish WPA capability. The firmware has to be WPA compatible and the driver module has to be WPA compatible too.

It looks as if neither Bodhi nor Lubuntu could find the magic spot to initialise WPA abilities.

Whatever the Windows guys did to establish WPA in this wifi device (and you said it works fine on XP) - the Linux guys could not achieve it and as far as I can see looking at lots of websites the Linux developers just gave up on trying to make it work.

This is sad because the non-usb versions of the prism2 interface work fine under Linux. But you are stuck with the usb version.

Probably the only way this might be able to work is if you can force Puppy to use ndiswrapper to load the Windows driver.

But who can help with info for using ndiswrapper??

I will post any links I can find. Here is one interesting one from tempestuous:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=145774#145774

Here is a quote from the wikka:http://puppylinux.org/wikka/HowToWifiFromCommand
Quote:
...Puppy's Network Wizard is one of the best in the business. It supports all currently available Linux wifi drivers including the unconventional linux-wlan-ng (prism2) drivers, plus ndiswrapper. ....For wifi chipsets not supported by a native Linux driver, Puppy also includes ndiswrapper, which will "wrap" a Windows driver. Obviously, you must supply the Windows driver files.

ndiswrapper is a workaround solution, but sometimes it's the ONLY solution.


Also - this page looks very helpful: http://www.puppylinuxforum.org/thread-596.html

(It is probably going to be necessary to manually unload any other prism2usb module that tries to load itself to your wifi interface during boot. Or else blacklist it (I think you can only blacklist after creating a savefile but I really don't know for sure)

Maybe this is the solution: https://delysid.org/jvcmp-xp7250de.html
Quote:
The built-in wireless LAN card of the xp7250 is connected internally via USB, and it is a Prism2.5 chipset based adaptor. This card is currently only supported by the Linux-wlan-ng Project, and not by the standard kernel yet. You need to download one of the latest development snapshots (I use 0.2.1pre20), and build/install it. The latest version of linux-wlan-ng in Debian does currently not yet support this USB card variant, so you will need to compile from sources.


Edit:

I successfully installed linux-wlan-ng_0.2.9+dfsg-4_i386.deb (https://ubuntu.pkgs.org/12.04/ubuntu-universe-i386/linux-wlan-ng_0.2.9+dfsg-4_i386.deb.html). We will see...

Rimatheou, you're attempting to run this using which Puppy?

You down for a quick experiment?

Open a terminal and check that "which ndiswrapper" returns a location. Yes or no?

Download, extract, then open win32 with ROX and right click + Window + Terminal Here. Install it with:
Code:
ndiswrapper -i MN510.inf

Check your install:
Code:
ndiswrapper -l

Should produce either a "driver present" or "device present" response.

Are we there?

Thanks for your help.

Code:
sh-4.1# pwd
/mnt/sdb1/win32
sh-4.1# ndiswrapper -i MN510.inf
installing mn510 ...
sh-4.1# ndiswrapper -l
mn510 : driver installed
   device (04F1:3009) present (alternate driver: prism2_usb)

and
Code:

#modprobe -r prism2_usb


Now I have this Interface in Simple Network Setup

Interface: wlan0
Type: Wireless
Driver: ndiswrapper
Bus: usb
Description: MS Windows driver mn510

BUT, unfortunately, after scanning there are no wireless networks detected.

Run "ndiswrapper –m" followed by "modprobe -a" to complete the process.

Then make sure your carrier device is broadcasting and rescan. We have your network?

That my card lacks a Win file to test, confirm whether "modprobe ndiswrapper" throws a FATAL reply.

With the above, for the moment covered, run a quick "dmesg" dump to see where we stand. You can paste it here.
