Hi there! So I've upgraded my laptop to something with a monstrous battery, light/small form factor, nice screen, docking station and slick aluminium exterior (wow this laptop is nice Very Happy ) and I'd like to stick with puppy. Now I'm currently using Ubuntu as I cannot get my wireless to work! I'm unsure what chip I have, I'm 99% sure it's intel and is capable of wireless 'N'.

lspci returns much information, including the following line;

Network controller: Intel Corporation Ultimate N WiFi Link 5300

Is there some way I can download a module for puppy to enable this hardware? The derivative I prefer is turbopup 1.0 (based on 4.20). Probably because my old PC is a compaq armada.

Any help much appreciated!

Cheers,
Hamish

Run the network wizard and tell us exactly what you see.

Hi, thanks for your reply!

I recieve the following message;

"Report on loading: No module was loaded

Puppy cannot see any active network interfaces"

It then gives me an option to load modules, however, loading the intel drivers does not work.

It might help to try something newer than a 4.2 version.
Something that has iwlagn wireless driver.
Maybe Wary, Quircky, Lupu.

Hey, I also have one of those Intel Corporation Ultimate N WiFi Link 5300's - in this laptop I'm on right now, an HP Elitebook. I've been using Slacko 5.6 and 5.7 & those seem to select the iwlwifi driver. Seems to be working alright for me. Sometimes it's slow to connect to an open, unencrypted wifi network - slower than accessing an encrypted signal w/password etc. Using simple SNS didn't get a result, but using Frisbee usually works ok. Once connected, dropouts are rare for me.
