Sources: http://www.filepup.net/files/9OaEYt1437814184.html

On a Linux formatted partition or savefile (not ntfs or fat):

Download and extract source (will be in folder wl223.248-patched-k4)
Install both devx and kernel-sources for Carolina: Vanguard Edition Release 2 December 2014 (download from bottom of post #1 of this thread)
In a terminal, navigate to the above folder
type: make
move wl.ko when created to /lib/modules/3.18.1/kernel/drivers/net/wireless
in a terminal type: depmod -a
then: modprobe wl
then: lsmod
and check wl has loaded successfully
reboot
if wl is not loaded (check with lsmod) you may need to manually load it and reboot again

Cheers

Thanks Peebee - I hope you have lots of patience I'm IT literate but have never done anything like this before.

Progress so far:
I now have folder wl223.248-patched-k4
I have downloaded devx and kernel-sources for Carolina: Vanguard Edition and know where to find them

Assumption:
I put the two devx and kernel-sources sfs in my Carolina folder where the puppy_vlina_1.3.sfs is so they will load on booting Carolina Vanguard.

"In a terminal, navigate to the above folder " - can you explain how this is done please. The path is sda7/Broadcom/wl223.248-patched-k4

Thanks again

Update:

I worked out how to use the sfs manager to load the dev and kernal sfs files

I then worked out how to open the terminal in the right directors.

so far so good.

Now I used the make command and got the following output:

# make

Seemed that I had wl right at the top so did a reboot.

An voila - OMG - I now have visible wifi network.
Easy to use frisbee to connect and start firefox

I am now using Carolina Vanguard to post this update


Peebee thank you so much for your patience and clear instructions. If I can feed this back to the community then I will. Is it possible to make a PET for other users? I never did that either but I'm so spurred on with today's success that I am willing to try and share my success for the benefit of others.

Thanks again - Puppy is the best Linux distro

Cheers
TTW

Congrats! Well done.
Yes - you can now make a pet...........make a folder with a suitable name and put into it the full directory tree starting at /lib and down to wl.ko in /lib/modules/3.18.1/kernel/drivers/net/wireless

then use dir2pet on the folder to make a pet.

Cheers
peebee

Updates and fixes for Carolina Vanguard R2
vlina_xfce_4.12_updates_and_fixes-08082015.pet
This should be ok to upgrade an existing save file, the changes can not be uninstalled, backup your save file first.
  • Upgrade to XFCE 4.12
  • Added box_splash, updated gtkdialog-splash, now uses notify-send for notifications.
  • Fixed a resulting problem of notification looping in PPM when checking for dependencies.
  • Updated Whisker Menu, now has a user image, clicking image shows gui to change image and change computer name.
  • Updated "bash" to version 4.3.39
  • Updated "ln" to ln (GNU coreutils) 8.23
  • Added create-sym, create Relative and Absolute links in the Thunar right-click menu
  • Updated Simple File Sharing
  • Added xclip version 0.12
  • Added Copy Path to Thunar right-click menu
  • Updated gvfs mounts, now thunar can be used as a ftp client eg. ftp://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux
  • Removed thunar wallpaper plugin, doesn't work with xfce 4.12 .


Might pay to try this with a new save first to be sure that it's working as advertised

It seems to be working fine for me, to check that the thunar ftp is working try this address in the thunar path entry, ftp://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux

I installed the update Geoffrey and now my cairo dock causes an issue wherever it is on the screen, with a box on the left ( my cairo dock auto hides on the left).

Is there an easy fix for this, or should I restore my save file to fix?

In the control panel > Windows Manager Tweaks > Compositor, turn off " Show shadows under dock windows" that will fix it.

Thanks Geoff. That sorted it out perfectly.

Next problem. I installed something (can't remember which, but might have been xfce task manager) that screwed up my menu. A couple of the menu entries are now in the wrong order. See attached.

How do I fix this?

Any ideas how to get rid of this warning? It doesn't actually seem to cause an issue, but is just annoying. Interestingly, it only seems to have an issue when Chromium isn't running. Does Chromium run in the background??
