Wireless N pcmcia sold out of China that I bought

It uses a

Code:
Card-2: Ralink RT2800 802.11n PCI driver: rt2800pci


chip.

Code:
# iwconfig wlan1 | grep -i --color quality
          Link Quality=52/70  Signal level=-58 dBm
iwconfig wlan1 | grep -i --color signal
          Link Quality=52/70  Signal level=-58 dBm 



I used to run a Belkin F5D 7010 .ver 6 PCMCIA Wireless G card in here (IBM T23 Laptop).

Price is right for New wireless N pcmcia and they ship worldwide. I already have mine. I am not affiliated and I am not spamming this. Just posting info and think it is a good deal for Wireless N in Puppy on old gear.

I picked up a used HP Elitebook that has one of these Intel Corporation Ultimate N WiFi Link 5300's in it. I've been using Slack0 5.6 & 5.7 & it works pretty well. Uses the iwlwifi driver. Sometimes it's slow to connect to an unencrypted signal when using Frisbee, but after a connection is made, seems alright.

NetGear N900 (WNDA4100) USB wireless dongle works in all Puppies with late kernels. Fatdog64-700a1; Slacko64-5.9.1; Tahr-5.8.3 all found the N900 out of the box. Others may work as well, I just didn't get around to trying them.

Netgear Wn 111 USB wifi dongle works in tahr and other puppies
It has been unstable in precise 5.7.1

Netgear Wn 111 USB wifi

Edit: It's stable in precise puppy. I had a damaged install which was giving me
a bad result.

Got this o.n s.a.l.e (even cheaper than listed)

EDIMAX EW-7811Un N150 USB 2.0 Wireless nano Adapter
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833315091

Works in Win7 (using provided driver from CD -- not automagic)

Works under Puppy 5.28 (using the XP driver from CD, and windows wrapper).

(my internal card failed and was replaced with this -- in addition to low external profile, the heat coming from my Win7 laptop dropped substantially -- apparently the internal card was shedding lots of heat -- didn't check for shorts in it yet...)

That device uses the rtl8192cu driver and should work in any k3.x Puppy without needing ndiswrapper.

Thanks Rcrsn.

I couldn't get the device to show up at all, until I used the XP drivers (running 5.28.005 IIRC rev correctly).

Excellent -- thanks for this.

I just downloaded the latest Slacko 5.7 and it doesn't see my TRENDnet usb. Will probably be ordering one of the edimax's today.

Please identify the full model name of your adapter. There is probably a driver for it.

OK ! using tahrpup 6.0 and lxtahr on HP G60 laptop

Puppy asked me to confirm as it is not on the list as being wpa compliant so being a good "master" I am here to say it works fine on my wpa-tkip network
(I haven't tried it with a hidden network yet)

It's a TRENDnet TEW624UB (wireless N, if that makes a difference). I went to their website and it looks like they just have drivers for Win and Mac.

There are several versions of your TRENDnet TEW624UB, based on different chipsets. But they should all be detected by Slacko 5.7. So I suspect that the problem is with firmware, which often occurs in Slacko.

Plug in the adapter and run the command: lsusb.

Identify the vendor:product ID codes. They may be 0bda:8174 or 20f4:624d.
