To get a D-Link DWL-650 Wireless PCMCIA card to work in Puppy 4.0 Dingo follow these instructions:

1. edit /etc/pcmcia/config, in the orinoco_cs device section, change the module to hostap_cs

Tha's it for the DWL-650.

To get autoconnect on boot working for it or any PCMCIA card:

1. On your desktop, click file, then startup, rt click, new-> script
2. change the name to StartNet
3. Rt Click StartNet, to to File 'StartNet' -> Open as text
4. add the following lines under the #!bin/sh line:
ifconfig wlan0 up
dhcpcd wlan0
5. Save the file and reboot

Setup your wireless network first so that it can connect and run an auto DHCP and save the configuration. After you are on the Network succesfully every time you reboot it should automatically reconnect to the previous network.

ALL CREDIT FOR THE FIX GOES TO lp0cua0 from IRC
