Why doesn't Puppy 2.16 wremember the wifi-settings at boot?
Every time when booting I have to configure the wireless-settings again.
I use the WEP-crypting.
Generally Puppy 2.16 works fine in my laptop, except this issue. I can live with this problem, but it would be nice if I could solve the problem. Smile

Any clue?

The wireless setup is compatible with the way that some wireless drivers expect to be called.

It is possibly easier to just put a couple of customised commands into rc.local than it is to debug problems with the wizard setup something like
[code]iwconfig eth0 essid my-access-point key my-wep-key
rm -f /etc/dhcpc/dhcpcd-eth*
dhcpcd eth0[code]

that works if you use WEP

What sort of security do you use on your AP?
