Hi,

i'm in trouble with my wifi connection.

I've installed the last puppy's version (4.3.1) on an USB key, and it work fine on a DELL.

unfortunately, the goal is a Packard Bell laptop, with a 'sensitive' activation button for wifi.

I guess Windows activate something during the boot but puppy not Sad

So puppy see my wifi (wan0) but it's like the wifi is switch-off.

any idea ?

Thanks !

I often have read here about some laptops, that there is a little switch to put in the correct position. My laptop, an IBM R40 doesn't have that, so I don't have to worry about it.

Bump.
I have exactly the same problem.
Looked in /lib/firmware and I see entries for iwlwifi-5000 but iwlwifi-1000 is needed. Anyone know how this can be obtained?

Look in /lib/modules/all-firmware and you might find a file iwlwifi.tar.gz
Click on it and perhaps the µcode file is in there.
Extract it somewhere and copy the file to /lib/firmware.
Never did such a thing, so don't know if it works.

I have this file in my puppy 4.3.2 experimental.

Good luck
