I am trying to configure the smc2662w v2 usb wireless adapter to work with flash puppy. Flash puppy does not recognize this device. I am trying to install the driver for it.
One, how do you use ndiswrapper in flash puppy, or
two, can some one help me install this: http://ftp.delta-v.org/linux/SMC2662WV2_Linux.tar.gz
the flash puppy kernel is not supported with this installer, and i have no idea what that means!

please give me some direction.. i have been working on this for a long time! Confused

but it is talked about here:

Wont work as it's designed for a kernel other than that used by Puppy. Actually it only a collection of precompiled drivers and command line utilities. Have a look on the wiki for information regarding ndiswrapper.

Looks as though your adapter should be supported via drivers already included as modules with Puppy 1.0.3 and 1.0.4.

Try this in a console window:
Quote:
modprobe at76c503-rfmd

then
Quote:
iwconfig


If iwconfig shows wlan0 as active, then follow the steps in this wiki page:

If you have a router that acts as a dhcp server, there is a shortcut for steps 3,4, & 5:

Quote:
rm /etc/dhcpc/*.pid
dhcpcd wlan0

Black adder.. .you are my new favorite person... I worked all day with rarsa on this, he helped me immensly, but it was yours that saved the day! I am a noob, and i am just barely understanding how rarsa and I accomplished setting up my network.. but i am very interested in knowing how you figured out that driver. Please enlighten me.

Thank you black adder and rarsa!

Happy to be of help.

There was no great magic to it. I have a USB-connected wifi adapter. Many of the USB 802.11b devices contain ATMEL chips. So I just checked the site for the drivers http://at76c503a.berlios.de/, and your adapter was on the list.

Next thing is to make the commands into a script to save you remembering and typing the commands each time. But maybe rarsa has already helped with that.
