Linksys WUSB54GS and Puppy - Need to pass to udev Subject description: Need to pass params to udev to adjust usb power output
Trying to get an old USB wifi adapter working. Linksys WUSB54GS v2.1.
I've seen a lot about getting this to work properly with ndis, etc, but there is a bit of a catch even before the driver loads. This usb adapter requires more power than the typical usb device, and several websites state that I have to pass params to udev to get that to work (bConfigurationValue=>1). I see that Puppy doesn't use udev, so how can I get that to work without udev? Is there some other hw probe script that I can work with?

Apparently you have the Broadcom 4320 USB chipset. Puppy 4.1rc (not retro) has the compatible "rndis_wlan" driver, which is a true Linux driver, not that ndiswrapper kludge.
Use the Network Wizard. If Puppy does not load this driver automatically, load it yourself.
