I just updated the first post to mention the most recent Puppy alpha versions with a suitably modern kernel.

This is like the airline joke "Coffee, tea, or juice?" to which the passenger replies "Yes." Wink

You list 5 versions of Puppy then say that "both" contain the ath9k driver. Is that because your list was initially only 2 versions and "both" didn't get edited to "all"?

Since this thread is primarily about Netbooks, would any of these also be good on a regular notebook or are one or two of them better suited to a notebook than the others, please?

I sure appreciate all that y'all do and will report back for the benefit ot others what I learn about Puppy and ath9k on the Acer Aspire 5535.

So to get this wifi device working I suggest owners use one of the Puppy variants with a recent kernel such as:

uPup (Puppy5) alpha -
http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/puppylinux/test/woof-417alpha/

or Puppy 4.3 beta with 2.6.29.6 kernel
http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/puppylinux/test/

or wow's "Unnamed pupplet (puppy411 kernel-2.6.27.5 Xorg-7.4 LXDE)"
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=36592

or MU's Newyearspup 02
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=37960

or kirk's "Fatdog 112"
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=41102


These should both have the new ath9k driver.

OK, went ahead and tried Fatdog 112 and it handles the Atheros wireless-n with ath9k.

The Acer Aspire 5535 is working OK under Puppy.

Well the first 900A models definitely did not have wireless-N.
They had the Atheros AR5007EG chipset which is mode A/B/G, supported under the 2.6.25.16 kernel in Puppy 4.1/4.2 by the modified (not standard) MADWiFi driver.

ASUS have been known to change chipsets, so it's possible that recent 900A models now have an Atheros N-mode device, but if so, this cannot be supported by the MADWiFi driver. The MADWiFi (ath_pci) driver does not support N-mode.

No, your gigabit ethernet device is supported by Puppy's atl2 driver.

Hi,
here's a link to a thread where I reported about k2.6.25.16's apparent inability to handle rt2860sta wifi in my Asus EEEPC 1000H (in contrast to k2.6.30.5).

None of the above works for me? Asus 1000HE detected ra0 module rt2860 pci: RaLink unknown.
Detects every thing like it should, get network and says it's working but i can't acces the internet?

I believe you'll find that the card installed (in most cases) in 1000hes is a AW-NE766, for which I cannot find a Linux driver which will allow it to connect to any non-open network.

Remove battery, look at one of the two labels revealed, & you'll see the model of your card.

Cheers,
EBear

Yes, that has an AzureWave wifi chipset, which has no Linux driver.

So the Eee 1000HES was probably meant to be a Windows-only Eee model, and is not a good choice for an "upgrade" to Puppy Linux ...
but you could probably wrap the Windows driver with ndiswrapper,
or better still, swap that wifi device out (it's a miniPCI card) and replace it with an Atheros/Realtek/Ralink based miniPCI wifi card.
