Trying Puppy again. This time using 2.15CE in fresh install. Never could get wireless to work in 2.14. Probably doing something wrong. Download PET firmware fix for bcm43xx, but still no joy.
What do I need in 2.15CE to get get wireless to work on my Fujitsu laptop using Broadcom bcm4306. Want to use WPA-PSK/TKIP. Wired connection works fine.

I found both the sys and the inf files in C:\drivers\WLAN\broadcom. I'll proceed as you say in your message. Is there any other .pet I should install? I think at one time I tried bcm43xx-firmware.pet which didn't work. Also, what is net-setup-2.15.pet?
Thanks again

That is the updated network detection wizard for Puppy 2.15CE-R2 and you should download and install the version HERE if you are having network detection problems.

Hope that helps.
