My first statement is: I'm a linux noob (but not an I.T. ignorant).
So I don't know if this is the best method, but it works well, at least for me.

Step 1

Plug your adapter before turning on your puppy.
When X starts, puppy has already configured the adapter for use with the rt2570 module, which doesn't function properly with the adapter, creating a line in etc/modprobe.conf:

alias rausb0 rt2570

Step 2

All you have to do is remove that line and add another to prevent the rt2570 from loading

alias rt2570 off

Step 3

Now grab the WinXP driver for v2

http://www.belkin.com/support/article/?lid=en&pid=f5d7050&aid=5381&scid=221&fid=2022&fn=f5d7050v2.exe

install it on a windows machine and grab the rt2500usb.* files from the installed folder.

Step 4

Through the "Connect" icon on puppy desktop choose to

"Connect to internet by network's device"

Then "load usb module" -> "more" -> "ndiswrapper" and load the rt2500usb.inf that you grabbed before.

Step 5

Configure the adapter preferences the standard way, and you're ready to go.

Hope this is helpful to someone.

---------------

Comments are welcome.

I would like some help to understand how to config wpa_supplicant with ndiswrapper so to get better protection and complete this how to.

-- don't know if you already have the solution.
I was able to setup the above mentioned file for WPA2 connection.
WLAN hardware:
Fritz!WLAN USB stick and router Fritz!Box Fon WLAN 7113.

I am using Puppy 4.1.1 and found the file 01:4A:1D;64:23.wpa2.config
in dir /etc/network-wizard/wireless/wpa-profiles.

It looked to me as if I had to change the name to my wlan usb stick MAC. But I was wrong. I had to take the original file, renamed the original file name and made a copy.

Changed the file to define the ESSID and the key. Very important: change the ap-scan from "0" to "1".

That established the connection to the WLAN router.
Before doing that I had to do the mandatory SCAN, define and save a profile and "use profile"

Strange enough - after power off and restart the ......wlan2.config file was altered - had ap-scan ="0" again and the key parameter substituted by hex characters.

I used the network wizard with the Auto DHCP function.

Followed your instructions and was up and running in less than 10 minutes on an old Dell Inspiron 1100. It had XP on it, I never got it to work on the xp side. I must have done something wrong I guess. But no matter I wanted to work on puppy anyway.

Extracting the files under windows is a pain

here are the files you need to set this usb driver up using ndiswrapper under puppy

http://www.ecomoney.eu/puppy/ndiswrapper/rt2500/

I dont know if a working native linux driver has been found, if so I would be willing to test.
