Works.

D-Link WNA-1330 Wireless G Notebook Adapter, H/W Ver. : A1, F/W Ver. : 1.10.

Tested in a Toshiba Tecra750DVD. Bios setup important.

Puppy version 4.00 on LiveCD.

For trials and tribulations encountered see http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=30559

Will automatically load ath_pci on boot.

Network Wizard only seems to work after performing wpa_supplicant.conf modification and commandline setup for WPA/PSK.

Using Motorola WR850G router.

There's your problem! Don't use blank spaces in Linux filesystems.
Easier still, you can install the dotpet directly from the USB drive, it's not necessary to copy the dotpet anywhere else ... but of course, the dotpet must not be in a sub-folder on the USB drive with spaces.


tempestuous:

Tested as directed above. Still no joy. I took Puppy 4.0 disk to main computer and ran same stuff, also no joy. The problem is not pressing. The only common item is the live disk. I will send for one by mail that I know is good. Then I will go back to testing. Will research commands and loading of programs. May take a couple of weeks but I will keep you informed. With the fires power and DSL were out for about 24 hrs.

Thank you.

The recent official Zydas "vendor" wifi driver from http://zd1211.wiki.sourceforge.net/VendorDriver
apparently supports some newer Zydas-based wifi devices not supported by Puppy 3.00's zd1211rw driver.
I now attach this package. It contains two different modules; zd1211 and zd1211b. If you have a recent Zydas chipset it's more likely to be supported by the zd1211b module.
After installing the dotpet, you will need to unload the standard module, and load the new one, like this -
Code:
rmmod zd1211rw
modprobe zd1211b

Now you can use the Network Wizard to configure your wifi connection.

UPDATE June 23 2008:
Apparently this forum doesn't like attachments with "+" in the filename, and this attachment became renamed to "zd1211%2Bb-2.21.0.0-k2.6.21.7.pet" - which corrupts the installation of the dotpet!
After 350 downloads, why did no one report this problem?
Dotpet has now been repackaged with different filename.

tempestuous,
I have installed this "new" version of the dot pet, but the end result is not a zd1211.k0 and zd1211b.ko, instead I get only a zd1201.ko see the screen shot.

Kind regards,
can8v

Jeffreytooker,
If the dot pet installed you should also have the same file shown in the screen shot and it should appear in the network wizard if you click on load module. You might try loading it just for grins.

can8v:

In a previous post "tempestuous" stated path to file as: /lib/modules/2.6.21.7/net/zd1211b.ko. You screenshot states: /lib/modules/2.6.21.7/kernel/drivers/net/wireless(allthumbs) Why the different paths to the module? I will try loading this evening, but I am not hopeful. Will keep all informed.

@Jeffreytooker
I cannot say with absolute certainty why tempestuous gave you a different path than I did for the location of the driver; my best guess is that he was typing the path from memory and forgot to include part of the directory tree in the path. While tempestuous is the foremost Puppy WiFi expert, he is human. I have never to my knowlege had my WiFi drivers in the directory that he mentions, in fact I don't even recall seeing that directory before, though the path is very similar to the path for the directory that stores my WiFi drivers.
In my mind the bigger concern is that I ended up with a zd2101.ko driver rather than a zd1211b.ko driver. At any rate it is possible that this could work for you. When I installed the pet package it installed the zd1201.ko just as I described and from then on I could see it in the load module section of the network wizard.

can8v & tempestuous:

The files in the same location as can8s's screenshot are: airo.ko, at76_usb.ko, atmel.ko, atmel_pci.ko, zd1201.ko and a folder named zd1211rw. In that folder exists a file named zd1211rw.ko

I believe (and I do not know how to prove) that "zd1201.ko" came original with the Puppy 4.0 disk. Code "rmmod zd1211rw" returns command prompt. Code "modprobe zd1211b" returns "Fatal: module zd1211b not found". Module exists in "mydocuments" by name as a .pet file (module) and is a 198K zipped file. The problem seems to be that "modprobe" can not find the zd1211b module in folder "mydocuments". Is "mydocuments" not a searchable folder for "modprobe'?

The location of the module in /lib/modules/2.6.21.7/net is where the compiler script (from Zydas) installs the module. Third party modules often install to unconventional locations. Modules can go anywhere in /lib/modules/<kernelversion> ... provided the "depmod" command is run after installation to "register" the location of the new module(s). My dotpet package has a post-installation script to run "depmod".

I just booted to the Puppy3.02alpha CD, which has the same kernel as Puppy4.0.
I downloaded zd1211b-2.21.0.0-k2.6.21.7.pet from the forum into /root/my-documents
I clicked on the file, and got the install prompt, refer image1.
After the installation I am greeted with the "SUCCESS" prompt, refer image2.
If I use ROX to browse to /lib/modules/2.6.21.7/net I can see the two new modules - refer image3. But more importantly, if I run "modinfo zd1211b" in a console I see this -
Code:

If the dotpet is failing to install by clicking on it in ROX, try the commandline equivalent -
Code:
petget /root/my-documents/zd1211b-2.21.0.0-k2.6.21.7.pet

If it fails, at least you should get some clue why.

Tempesteous:

When I click on the .pet file icon I get two blinks and no install prompt. In console I entered required code. Yields: bash: petget /root/my-documents/zd1211b-2.21.0.0-k2.6.21.7.pet: No such file or directory. I placed the .pet file in /. I entered: petget /zd1211b-2.21.0.0-k2.6.21.7.pet. Yielded petget /zd1211b-2.21.0.0-k2.6.21.7.pet: No such file or directory.

I may be mistaken but it appears that can8v in his post of 2:21 today says he installs and gets zd1201. I believe he was not successful in his install and believes zd1201 to be the result of his install. I believe zd1201 was original with the Puppy 4.0 disk. My reason for this is that zd1201 is with zd1211rw in a different path and file from the one where you told me the zd1211b file will go. If can8v and I both have the same problem, then there may be a problem somewhere else.

can8v:

look in this location and see what you have. /lib/modules/2.6.21.7/net/zd1211b.ko.

Well the error seems quite clear, you should be able to diagnose it yourself; zd1211b-2.21.0.0-k2.6.21.7.pet does not exist in /root/my-documents
Maybe you have inadvertently copied over the old corrupt version of the dotpet?

"zd1211%2Bb-2.21.0.0-k2.6.21.7.pet" = corrupt version

"zd1211b-2.21.0.0-k2.6.21.7.pet" = fixed version

"tempestuous":

I agree. I believe the problem is the loading, not the module. Working with Muggins. Thread: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=209683#209683

Thank you for all of your help. I will keep you informed.

tempestuous,
I am quite certain I have the most recent pet package and I have no directory despite having installed the pet package and getting the same success message you did. The screen shot is below.
can8v
*edit*
I tried to uninstall the package and it does not show up in the package manager. I deleted the zd1201.ko driver from the system then redownloaded the pet package and tried to run it again. When I clicked on it I got a warning that the package had already been installed. I then clicked install anyway and the installation completed successfully per the success message at the end. I however, still do not have the two driver files or the /lib/modules/2.6.21.7/net/ directory.

Partial success!
I decided to change the file extention of the pet package to .tar.gz instead of .pet. I then opened the archive using pupzip and extracted the two driver files to the /lib/modules/2.6.21.7/net directory, which I had to create of course.
I did this using a 400 live cd with puppy pfix=ram boot parameter. Now I merely need to get back to my house, so I can test the drivers with the WiFi adapter. I still cannot figure out why the pet package will not install by clicking on it. The package looks to be in order other than the fact that I can't install it by clicking on it.

can8v, if you manually copy the modules into place, don't forget to run "depmod" afterwards. Otherwise your system will not recognise the new modules.

I'm now wondering if the dotpet installer is failing to create a new directory? It would be worth manually creating the necessary directory, then see if the dotpet will successfully install. So try this -
Code:
mkdir /lib/modules/2.6.21.7/net

then run the dotpet and see if it installs now.

Sorry to intrude. I am sending this post FYI. In my researching my problem I find that there are several people with the same problem. The modprobe can not find the module. I started a thread: ROX Not Installing Modules. Link: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=209611#209611

This should get you up to speed on where I am. I have found further information which I have not put on the above link. I do not wish to question your expertise but all that I have found leads me to believe there is a difference between the Puppy kernel that you are using and the 4.0 kernel that others of us are using. I would like to try the Puppy 3.01 CD in my system to see if I can get the zd1211b module to install. My Puppy 4.0 has installed files to my HDD. Can I just load a 3.01 disk in and have the system come up OK?

Hello folks,

I've been finding the last topic interesting and thought I could maybe help by trying out the zd1211b-2.21.0.0-k2.6.21.7.pet in question for another look at it's behavior.

I have Puppy 4.00 loaded on my desktop in 256 MB of ram. I don't have the USB wireless card being considered here, so can't follow through with seeing if it will work as a connection.

I downloaded the .pet into the my-documents folder and opened Rox. Clicked on the .pet file and the Pet Manager opened and the installation went perfect.

I then did "modprobe zd1211b and that went ok, no error messages and # sign came up. I then did a search for zd1211b and you can see the results below.

[img]http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?mode=attach&id=10435[/img]



I then looked into the Puppy Package Manager and the .pet file shows up in the bottom pane.

[img]http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?mode=attach&id=10436[/img]

From PPG, I uninstalled the .pet with no issues.

I then did "rmmod zd1211b" in console. No problems. Then redid the search in pfind and there were enties gone with some left behind.
See image

[img]http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?mode=attach&id=10437[/img]

On my system, the zd1211b-2.21.0.0-k2.6.21.7.pet file installs from Rox ok, and modprobe works ok on zd1211b, but the file locations are different from what has been discussed. The PPG manager functions as it should for uninstall of the .pet , as does rmmod.

Sorry for the images, I couldn't get them to go in the right locations Mad
