Then you must have that file in:

/lib/modules/2.6.18.1/kernel/drivers/base/firmware_class.ko

and the first comand:

Code:
modprobe firmware_class


have to run ok. Question Question Question

See if you have that file in the mentioned route.

Regards.

Caka, Thanks for your help.

I checked the file and I can find no base file. Is it possible that i had a bad download. I also noticed that it could not find the built in network cards on my other computers as well. Computers that ubuntu is running fine on. Should I try another dl? If so which is the best one to dl?

Try to download zdrv_213.sfs from here:

ftp://ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/puppylinux/

That file include a lot of drivers and modules. You must put te zdrv file in the same directory that your file pup213 for being load when you boot Puppy.

Good luck and sorry for my poor english

shockwave I am not an expert in Puppy, but I think that there isn´t a version with the zdrv file.

I am using Puppy 2.12 actually. If you don´t want to try Puppy 2.13 with the zdrv file maybe you want download the version 2.12 which included the zdrv file:

ftp://ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/puppylinux/puppy-2.12-seamonkey-zdrv.iso

Are 83 Mb. Good luck

Caka,

Thanks for all the help. After reading through the 2.13 read me files i think i want to try and stick with the 2.13 if possible. I will try and find information on how to make it work and what I need to do to get the two parts to work together. That or wait till the next release.

If you want to use the zdrv file, you must save a sesion and create the pup_save.3fs-file. Then you must move the zdrv file to the same partition that pup_save.3fs-file. In the next boot up with Puppy 2.13 it will recognise the zdrv file and will load the modules.

Regards.

Thanks caka!

I will give it a try tomorrow. It's after 1am here so I gotta get to bed, but that sounds pretty easy. Hopefully I can get it working.

Thanks again

I downloaded 2.13 with the zdrv file already included, so it does exist.

shockwave i have download now Puppy 2.13 fulldrivers and burn in a CD.

And after boot I can find the firmware_class file in the directory lib/modules/2.6.18.1/kernel/drivers/base.

Then I think that the zdrv file isn't necesary. You must have all the needed files and the comands will run ok without errors:

Code:
modprobe firmware_class
modprobe ieee80211
modprobe ieee80211softmac
modprobe bcm43xx


I don't understand why you don't find the firmware_class file Question Question Question

What version of Puppy do you have?. You must download this:

ftp://ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/puppylinux/puppy-2.13-seamonkey-fulldrivers.iso

Have a good night. In spain now is afternoon. I will go to bed in about 6 hours.

Regards.

I burned another copy and I now have all those files. I was able to run the commands with no problem as well. When I run iwconfig i get

etho ieee 802.11b/g essid:off/any with a bunch of other settings. I believe it is loaded, so now how do I connect it? Also I am using wpa connection. Thanks. I can't believe I got this far. This is pretty fun.

Thanks

You're just in time to use rarsa's new Network Wizard with WPA support -

A tip - in the WPA section of the wizard your device is known as "other".
