Sub_title: no wireless extension even after a modprobe prism54
 

Hi,

I'm trying the last Puppy, everything works fine on my own PC except the wifi connection

on Debian or Ubuntu, after modprobe prism54, wlan0 appear when I use the command ifconfig -a.

With Puppy ifconfig just show my eth0 which is my realtek RTL-8169 and iwconfig tell me "no wireless extension"

Does anybody know how to use this kind of wifi chipset ?

Thanks in advance

Vincent

I tried with ndiswrapper and the Windows XP driver found on the computer vendor website, without success.

I tried on another computer with a ralink rt2500. The module mount correctly and ifconfig -a shows me the card, but not ifconfig without argument. ifconfig ra0 up doe not work : SIOCSIFFLAGS : Device or resource busy.
