Subject description: no driver of wireless interface
 

I switched from Tahrpup to Xenialpup. In Tahrpup I had a wifi connection without troubles. in Xenialpup there is no wireless interface, because of a missing driver. I have a Quallcomm Atheros AR 9285 adapter on a EEEPC 1201HA.
Wich driver should I install and how?
Thanks!

In the future alway, always, always state the exact version of Puppy.

I will assume you are talking about Xenialpup 7.5 the 32bit version of Xenialpup.

Make sure you already have a save so the pet package install will stick after a reboot.

Try installing this missing drivers pet package.

Reboot.

Any help?

The version of Xenialpup is as you presumed 7.5, 32 bit. I shall mention that in future cases.
The installation of the linked pet did the job: wifi works.
Thank you, bigpup!
