Hi, all!

I'm running Puppeee4.4 on an ASUS eeePC 1000HA. Until now, I've been connecting to the Internet via a friendly neighbor's unsecured wi-fi signal. However, he just put a password on it and Pwireless2 returns "Invalid Password" every time I try to connect.

I know the password I'm using is right, so what' s happening?

This problem has probably come up a hundred times, but as I don't have an internet connection at home right now, I don't have time to look for the posts or FAQs. So, I apologize if this is a repeat.

Hope someone can help me, 'cause I love my Puppeee4.4, and Pwireless2 is otherwise a great program.

Mike

Could Puppeee4.4 use a Frisbee pet?

I'm gonna read my way through that whole thread on Frisbee and see what I can get out of it. In the meantime, a coupla questions:
- Is Frisbee a replacement for Pwireless2 (maybe because of the kind of problem I'm having)?
- Can I still download the necessary pet and dependencies to make it work on Puppeee4.4?
- If I am able to get it and install it, will I still be able to use Pwireless2, in case Frisbee doesn't work?

I realize I should be directing these questions to Jemimah, but as she is no longer around. . .

Cheers.

Mike

Hi, all.

I read the Frisbee thread and it looks like it might solve my wi-fi key problem. But as no one has answered my questions, I'm afraid to download and install it.

Can someone help me out here, either by answering the questions (so I can test Frisbee) or suggesting a fix for Pwireless2?

Thanks.

First of all did he change encryption ie open connection to WPA2 WPA etc???

Another useful connection tool I have used is Barry K's simple network tool which I have had much wireless success with.

Yes! by the great Jemimah

Frisbee is a Wpa Roaming frontend inspired by Wpa Gui. It is also a frontend for Dhcpcd.

Frisbee supports Open, WEP, and WPA Personal wireless networks as well as Ethernet. Support for AdHoc networks is still mostly untested.

Frisbee scans constantly for changes to your networking environment so you won't be dropped. Frisbee can roam between wireless networks automatically. It can also detect any time you plug in your ethernet cable and connect automatically.

Frisbee_tray knows if you're connected by wired, wireless, or modem and the icon changes to indicate which it is.

---

I've tested it briefly on Lupu, Wary, and Puppy 4.2. "

I read through the first post and a lot of the rest of the thread, and I had trouble understanding much of it. I'm not a very experienced user. Plus the thread is very long (271 posts) with many modifications to Jemimah's pets, either for versions of Puppy or because of bugs in Frisbee and the other required pets.

So, would you suggest I go ahead anyway and download and install the four pets Jemimah gives on the first page of the thread? It all looks kinda dangerous to me.

I'd be a lot happier if I knew that Pwireless2 will still work if Frisbee doesn't, and if any of those Frisbee-required pets are going to change the way Puppeee4.4 boots and runs in general.

What do you think?

Cheers.

Mike

In BK's post, I don't know what ndiswrapper, ndiswrapper.ko, etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit and rc.shutdown are.
I don't know whether I need to install them, whether they shouldn't be on my system at all (see BK's warning), or whether they are included in the sns-2.1.pet download.

Can you clarify?

Thanks.

All-

In the original thread about SNS-2.1 (Simple Network Setup v.2.1):
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=400730#400730
there's a post that says you can fix WEP with the line:

Code:
iwconfig wlan0 key open XXXXXXXXXX


Can anyone tell me:
1) What replaces the "x"s? The key code?
2) Should this also work for Pwireless2? (Could this be a fix for my key problem?)

Thanks.

Cheers!

Mike

Darry-

Thank you for trying to help. Maybe someone will jump in with some answers. But It's a thorny issue, for sure.

Yes to be honest I only have the skills just above a Newby really and have been lucky to discover some stuff here and there that works and share it. I do wish I had Ttuuxxx's skills or Igueleur they are real developers and wizzes with everything Linux related and of course BK.

To be able to compile things from source is something I can only dream about.

There's gotta be a fix for Pwireless2, but it's an uphill battle getting these savvy forum members to help out with Puppeee problems and older apps. I can see their POV. They're trying to advance Puppy, and I'm going backwards. Sad

But I've got my fingers crossed, and I don't give up easily.
