Sub_title: networking problems

Just installed Puppy 4.1.2 on an old Sony VAIO laptop, configured dual-boot with Win98 (NOT 98SE).

Having no joy getting either of my PCMCIA cards to work for Puppy:

Airlink AWLC3026 Wireless LAN card
US Robotics USR7901A Ethernet card

Haven't been able to find a usable driver for either card using the Networking Wizard.

Both cards work fine when I'm running Win98.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

if these are older equipment you may have better luck with an older puppy eg. 2.17 or 3.01

ASUS EeePC Flare series 1025C 4x Intel Atom N2800 @ 1.86GHz RAM 2063MB 800x600p ATA 320G
