Hi all,

First, remenber i'am french and my english is bad...
And, i just try to use a small distrib to know how it's working.

I burn a CD with PUPPY and i save datas to an USB drive (PNY, it's my work!).It's the only distrib can work well on my notebook.

All work exept wifi!!!!! I read a lot of forum....and i don't understand how to install it. I have XP drivers (INF+SYS) for Ndiswrapper, i have linux driver for ZD1211 but:
HOW TO USE "MAKE" to compil it ???
When i type "make" or "make install" a message tell me is not a bash command. i think a module missing but how to install it ?

My config is :

Celeron Mobil 1.5 512Mo SIS ship
Wifi is trendnet 424 on USB port, use ZD1211 drivers (i can read)
(With embeded network, connection is OK)

Thanks for your help

Oh. Another wireless chipset I didn't know existed - ZyDAS ZD1211. Your adaptor is not listed on the ndiswrapper compatibility webpage.
I suppose you're trying to compile the driver from http://sourceforge.net/projects/zd1211/
I will compile this driver myself and put it with the others at http://mymirrors.homelinux.org/puppy/wireless/

http://mymirrors.homelinux.org/puppy/wireless/ is not administered by me. I have to ask for access, and I want to wait until various other packages have been tested and updated first before I add the Zydas driver.

For now, I attach it to this message. Uncompress it from /

Another french; sorry for the english.
I downloaded your file and found three inside. Untar them and I got a new directory zd1211 in /lib/modules/net/wireless
and inside this directory a file with a .o extension.

I suppose after that i had to use modprobe. But modprobe can't find any module.

I would appreciate some help... (why not a brief tutorial?)

Puppy is on a USB stick and my wifi is also USB, brand SITECOM WL 113 and I found the linux driver was zd1211.

I just got this same USB addapter just to have an extra device test while I work on the network wizard but I'm having problems making it work:

The USB viewer shows it as 'Unknown device' but has the right device info, so I know that the USB port is OK and that the device is correctly plugged in.

I tried with ndiswrapper but it only shows "driver found" not "hardware found"

Now I'm trying this zd1211 driver:
- The module loads OK with modprobe
- lsmod shows
Code:
zd1211_mod            201024   0  (unused)

- dmesg shows
Code:
usb.c: USB device 5 (vend/prod 0x457/0x163) is not claimed by any active driver.
ZD1211 802.11b/g USB WLAN driver v20050315 loaded
(c) Willig, Yang, Zviskov et al.
http://zd1211.sourceforge.net/
usb.c: registered new driver zd1211

- ifconfig and iwconfig don't show the interface.


What am I missing?

The addapter model and version is TEW-424UB/CA H/W:V2 (it's not the flat one, it's the rounded one)

I know what's wrong with te zd1211.

The version of the addapter I have uses a different chipset (SiS163u). Still I cannot get it to work with ndiswrapper. I'll keep trying.

I was going to edit my original post but I realized that knowing that there are two versions of this same addapter may help someone else.

The SiS 163u chipset is only supported in latest ndiswrapper versions(v1.4 and up)

Thank you,

I actually tested with ndiswrapper 1.7, 1.6 and 1.5.

with the same result. It does not seem to detect the 'hardware'.
