Have a no-name brand PCMCIA 802.11B wireless card. Found that it is really a Realtek 8180. Does Puppy 1.04 have support for this..cant seem to find it listed in the wizard unless its under another driver name..

The Linux Realtek drivers are crap, they don't work and are bound to kernels compiled to a specific version of gcc, I tried for ages to get them to work. ndiswrapper is the only option for these chipped cards.
