Hi!
I am about to install Puppy on a fairly old desktop PC (Pentium II @ 233MHz), and would like to find out from you what wireless network adapter (for PCI or USB) that is likely to work out of the box or with minimal fuzz with the latest release of Puppy? Could anyone recommend a brand and model?

Thanks,
Hans-Göran

I bought a D-Link DWL-510 (802.11b) PCI card OVERPRICED for $20 and got it working on Live Puppy 1.0.8r1 on an HP Pavillion PC using ndiswrapper and wifi-1.0.4-beta-2.pup within 2 hours with about 1 week experience of Puppy just by following the dotpup instructions.

The DWL-510 is one of several supported cards in the wifi-beta package and should be OK if you're still using an 802.11b (or g in b mode) network. I have it working with a DI-514 router with WEP encryption & SSID broadcast suppressed.

If I can do it anybody can Surprised)

After weeks of thinking that I would never get that cable off my floor I bought the DWL-G520 from CompUSA and got it to work with MADwifi.

I used Tempestous' driver from:

No problems at all!
