@Abel:-

I agree that Wary will probably be your best option, bearing in mind that you've only got a PIII in there.

However, do be aware that if your router has wireless broadcast facilities built-in (most do these days), then it's perfectly possible to add wireless capability to your Fujitsu by the use of a USB wireless 'dongle'.

Or, if you have a PCMCIA 'CardBus' slot, then via a CardBus wireless adapter.

I can recommend these two:-

USB

Netgear WNA-3100M http://www.netgear.co.uk/home/products/networking/wifi-adapters/WNA3100M.aspx

The driver for this is the RealTek rtl8192cu, which has been supported by the Linux kernel for a very long time. It's almost guaranteed to work in all Puppies. I use one of these myself, and it works well with Racy (Wary's 'big brother').

PCMCIA 'CardBus'

NetGear WPN511 RangeMax https://www.amazon.com/NETGEAR-WPN511-RangeMax-Wireless-Network/dp/B003WD1JLQ

This uses the venerable 'ath5k' driver, which really has been in the kernel since, ooh.....forever, really. Again, guaranteed to work with all Pups.

Just my tuppence-worth. And, BTW:-

To open Xubuntu's Thunar file-manager as /root/superuser, enter in the terminal

Code:
sudo thunar


.....and enter your password when/if asked for.

Hi,

I have this computer:
https://www.cnet.com/products/fujitsu-lifebook-s4546-piii-600-mhz-12-1-tft-series/specs/
All specs in the link,
(Fujitsu LifeBook s4546) 256mb RAM || 600MHz CPU || 40G Hard disk


Well, it's probably going to be slow anyway -- the limited RAM will be a problem (particularly with newer memory-hog browsers).

I have an old 333 MHz laptop, with (IIRC) 256MB RAM (I believe this was the max for the machine). It ran 5.25 Retro fine. I believe that it also ran the standard 5.28 Lupu fine. Once installed, I make sure to set it so it doesn't load to RAM. I think that I have a 6 GB HDD (and it also runs Win98 -- I booted that up the other day -- I had forgotten how slow that machine was... Wink )

Browsers are going to be a problem -- though PaleMoon seems to be tolerable (doesn't eat all RAM, and doesn't randomly crash like FireFox). Still identifies as "new enough" that most web sites don't squawk too much.

Long time now,
I confirm the laptop has indeed an RJ-45 port but unlike a normal RJ-45 "Female" connector it only has 4 pins, I guess that means it has a slower speed.

I haven't turned on the laptop in a while now.

RJ11 4 pin versus RJ45 8 pin .

The two inner pins red and green wires usually connect to telephone wire interface and is probably and internal MODEM for connecting to an ISP over the telephone.

14.4 K baud or 33.6K or 56K baud.

So and RJ11 4 pin telephone wires which can have 48 Volts DC on the two inner pair of wires. (usually red and green for line1 telephone connection. The outer yellow and black wires are for line 2 telephone connection)

The RJ45 is for a Network 10 Base T 8 pin Cable connection in the T568B format. It is low voltage high speed data wiring. DONT plug into a live RJ11 telephone connector. The 48VDC will blow up your network electronics interface.

Best of luck and enjoy using puppy linux on your laptop.
