Subject description: Finally Windoze free!
 

I download the madwifi-hal-r3942-aircrack-k2.6.25.16.pet and on the reboot I had wi-fi connection labeled ath0. All these years of watching Puppy and I'm finally free of Windoze, though it is still a good game system. I have had a copy of Puppy since the release of the 2.15 CE release. The first release that gave me a wi-fi connect was WOW's pupplet. I then acquired Exton LXDE which also gave me a connection. Now I have Flexxpup 1.5.5 (stripped XFCE) and I'm happy.

P.S. I would love to help with puppy. I'm currently working on my Associate in Computer Applied Science, with 5 classes left. I'm unemployed and a single parent and would love to give some time.

P.S. my daughter loves Edupup, she's a puppy fan too, and she is six.

Hi,

First post and surprise surprise I'm stuck! I am pretty familiar with Ubuntu but thought I would try Puppy.

I downloaded v4.1.2 from the website and put it on a CD, using a TX1138EA (TX1100 series) HP tablet PC with a Broadcom 4321 wifi adapter. For the life of me I cant make it detect it.

The wired works AOK but it doesn't see the wireless using any of the Broadcom drivers on the network wizard load module section. I tried installing the dotpet on page 5 by tempestuous that doesn't help and it doesn't work if I load the wl module either - so now I am at a loss.

Code:

# lsmod

I never got 4.1.2 (or predecessors) to set up my EeePC901 WiFi via the wizard so had to resort to manually editing some files (got both WEP anf WPA working in the end). But suggest you give Puppy 4.2RC2 (I have not tried RC3 yet so might be ok as well) as with 4.2 the Network Wizards worked fine for me. Keep with it Puppy is great!

Here is the latest "sierra" driver for Sierra wireless modems.
Puppy already contains an earlier version of this driver, but the new one extends support to these models:

Aircards:
AirCard 580
AirCard 595
AirCard 597E
AirCard 875
AirCard 88X
AirCard 88XE
USB dongles:
AirCard 595U
Compass 597
USB 598
AirCard 875U
AirCard 88XU
Compass 885/888
USBconnect 881
Mercury
Mini Cards:
MC5720
MC5725
MC5727
MC8755
MC8765
MC8775
MC878X
MC879x
Other:
PC5220
EM5625

To configure and connect with these devices, go to the "Connecting using PPPD" section here
http://sierrawireless.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/500/session/L3NpZC96TTJKTWh0ag==

I have already included the Sierra chatscripts in the dotpet package, so just follow the instructions from step 3.
Forum member mill0001 asked to be able to launch the connection script from a desktop icon, so I created pppd-call-cdma.pet
now attached.
After installing this dotpet, use ROX to browse to /usr/local/bin and find pppd-call-cdma.sh.
Right-click its icon, select "Set Icon..." which will open a "Set icon" window.
Now use another ROX window to browse to /usr/local/lib/X11/pixmaps
and drag an icon of your choice into the "Set icon" window.
Now drag the pppd-call-cdma.sh icon onto the desktop.
Each time you want to connect, just click this icon. You will see the connect script run in an rxvt window, then at completion, exit after a 2 second delay.

Of course, it would be better to incorporate these configuration steps into rerwin's "3G_pupdial-wireless" dotpet -
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=37828
Maybe rerwin can work it out?

Well that Broadcom device is definitely compatible with both the opensource "b43" driver and the proprietary "wl" driver.
I suggest you do some serious diagnosis. At bootup your system should automatically load the wl driver. Check with lsmod.
Now run this command to check if a wifi interface has been created -
Code:
ifconfig -a

As well as the "eth0" ethernet interface you will hopefully see the wifi interface as "eth1" or "wlan0".
If not, unload the wl driver, and load the b43 driver instead -
Code:
rmmod wl
modprobe b43

Now run "ifconfig -a" again to check for an interface.

Hi,

I've installed Puppy 4.1.2 onto a 2GB SD card to try on my eeepc 701 4G

I'm very impressed with how well everything works, but am having problems with the wifi.

I've installed madwifi-hal-0.10.5.6-r3861-k2.6.25.16.pet , which has allowed the 4G to be able to see my wifi, but the setup wizard won't let me enter the full 63 digit WPA-PSK it needs. Just a portion is retained.

Is there a way to work around this problem?

(Edit) I've upgraded to Puppy 4.2 and it looks great on the eeepc.

Same problem remains though.

Had to install madwifi-hal-0.10.5.6-r3861-k2.6.25.16.pet to get it to see my wifi. Tried to configure, but Puppy will not accept my 63 digit WPA-PSK, cutting it down to 30 digits when 'save' is clicked. I get the impression that I could connect without issue to an unencrypted or weakly encrypted network, even if not to my own. (I don't consider weakening my network encryption to be an acceptable compromise to get Puppy connected.)

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

That's a Network Wizard issue, not driver issue.
I suggest you post your query in the "Improved Network Wizard" thread -
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=31522

or maybe just install the latest version of the Network Wizard.

Generate key using wpa_passphrase and enter the hex key in the wizard.

I'm not certain that I understand.

I already have a 63 digit WPA Pre Shared Key for my wifi.
The problem is that the setup wizard will only accept 30 digits of it.

Run in the terminal
Code:
wpa_passphrase [ ssid ] [ passphrase ] > w.txt

with your ssid and passphrase. Open w.txt, find encrypted passphrase in it and copy/paste it in the wizard window. Use backslash as an escape symbol if needed in the command.
