netgear wg111v2 USB works in puppy linux.

See this thread for more information: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=121442#121442

I've used it in Puppy 2.14 and 2.16 so far.

Also, I suggest the original thread creator reorganize the devices into alphabetical order. A quick run with a spreadsheet program ought to sort things out.

D-Link DWL-122G rev B1 USB adapter works in 2.17.1.

This uses the Ralink RT2570 chipset & the driver in earlier Puppys would never load on my VIA EPIA 5000. Now it does.

But, the network connection wizard in 2.17.1 doesn't configure it properly. Instead, use the rutilt utility which does work.

I haven't yet figured out how to save the configuration from rutilt so it connect automatically on next boot.

Netcomm Wireless USB dongle NP544 works with NOP-217-up1, using ndiswrapper Smile

Also works with Puppy-pro, also with ndiswrapper. Smile

Doesn't seem to work with other puppies I have tried, such as simplepup and chinesepuppy 2.13 Sad

PostPosted: Mon 10 Sep 2007, 22:46    Post_subject: Broadcom 4306 works in puppy 2.17.1 ? native
Sub_title: report of apparent success with native linux BCM43xx driver

I have posted elsewhere on the puppy forums that with 2.17.1, my integrated wireless works without any action save for configuring wireless network.

I cannot guarantee that Puppy isn't using ndiswrapper (I haven't checked to see if it is loaded) but it isn't asking me for a path to the windows driver or inf file.

The important thing is that it is working with miminal irritation (solely that it doesn't remember the wireless profile and I have to launch the Network Wizard and select "use that profile" several times each time I boot).

i thought i had already listed this, but...

netgear wg511u (athros chipset) works in puppies 2.10 through 2.13 both with native linux driver, and ndiswrapper (it's a bit easier to run with ndiswrapper).

i can also confirm it working in 2.13 for wpa-psk with ether driver using the network wizard version 2.14-8.

reedit: edit: the device works using both rutilt and the connection wizard for open APs, but needs the wizard for wpa-psk. also, i have not had a chance to test it with wep.

too bad my pcmcia slot went south, i'm now forced to work on getting a usb adapter working (see my post in bugs). it's one that someone posted as working, so i'm guessing i should read that thread.

so much to learn, so late a start.

Sub_title: Wireless Card Works

I am able to successfully run wireless with the CNET CNWLC-811 PCMCIA 11Mbps card. I load the driver for RT2400, test RA0 and then use DHCP to get a connection to my unsecured network.

I have not been successful with a protected network such as WEP or WPA.

You can add BCM43xx as working WITH WEP. This by blacklisting the BCM43xx driver in the pup and using ndiswrapper with the .inf file from my driver cd.

Using ndiswrapper and windows drivers together with command line wpa_supplicant works! Fails miserably using Network Wizard because WPA (of 8 characters, either alpha or hex equivalent) doesn't connect.

Linksys WUSB54GC (RT73 chip) w/ 128 bit WEP in Pup3.01: works great using a connection script.

I had different degrees of bad luck with either Connection Wizard, RuTilt or Pwireless, however if I take the commands that the Wizard (eventually) generates and put them in a script then the adapter works perfectly.
