i) You must install the "modules-preference" fix, as explained in the post where you obtained the driver -
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=346450#346450
This will avoid a potential conflict between the rt3070sta driver and the rt2870sta driver.

ii) USB hubs can be a disaster, in both Linux and Windows. Try again without the hub.

iii) and of course, make sure your Puppy version (which you should have revealed) actually uses the 2.6.30.5 kernel.

PostPosted: Fri 21 May 2010, 05:37    Post subject: PET file does not work  

I am running Puppy 4.3 small (which has kernel 2.6.30.5) I have a USB WIFI adapter with the Ralink RT3070 chipset. I could not get it to work with the pet for my kernel offered for downloading at the beginning of this post.

However, the Pet made by Tempestuous at http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=346450#346450 (rt3070sta-v2.1.2.0-k2.6.30.5.pet) did work without any problems.

The problem with the pet in this post is that the network wizard does not list the WIFI adapter among the interfaces.

Note that I installed pup_event_backend_modprobe_fix_to_p43x-1.pet before installing the rt3070 pet (and I rebooted a few times between installing those 2 pets).

As much as I hate long posts, please forgive me, I need help. Thank You guys.
My setup:
Asus PC Eee 1005PE (Puppy 4.3.1 on 4GB SD-Card)
Atheros AR9285 Wireless (won't work with secured connections)
Atheros AR8132 PCI-E Ethernet.
Alfa AWUS036NH Firmware v22 (Chipset RT3070)

Problem 1)
- Using internal Atheros AR9285 Wireless card. I can only connect to Open Connections, wlan0 see all available connections, but won't connect to secure ones.
- So, I then open a console and type iwconfig, it tells me that wlan0 is connected to “secure.connection” but I get no Internet connection.

Situation 2)
- I bought the Alfa AWUS036NH wireless USB - Chipset RT3070
- I Installed rerwin's pup_event_backend_modprobe_fix_to_p43x-1.pet
- Then installed Patriot rt3070sta-k26305-2.1.2.0-i486.pet
- To make this driver work, I had to blacklist the wlan0 ath9k module and load RT2870 module.
- I can connect to open networks but not secure connections.

Oh did I forget to mention this is my first time using Linux? Well yes it is only two weeks trying to learn Linux. So I don't know most of the commands.


I really want to congrats the puppy developers and the mods here for ur great work on the new puppy 5. Thanks. now i can use my alfa card with the included RT2870 which so far is doing the job. zOnly thing i got to do is blacklist RT2800usb and restart and i have no problems connecting to my wpa network. Thankx again.

Im still testing the new Puppy 5 version. Does anyone knows if aircrack-ng will work now without the need to crazy configurations?

Thank you BarryK, temp, and patriot and the other guys i dont know their names.

Subject description: Just tried it on mt asus netbook
 

This is suh-WEET!! I now have wireless for my Asus Eee 701SD! I have the Intellinet 150N USB wifi stick and this driver works just fine, so now I can roam at will. Perhaps I'll find out which chipset this netbook has onboard and get a driver for that as well, but for now this does the job just fine. Now all I need is to find the driver for my slackware install....

Thanks for making this available to us all!

Yes, that would be the more elegant solution. Your 701SD contains a miniPCI wifi device with the Realtek RTL8187SE chipset.
Driver for Puppy 4.3.x here

ditto
ralink 2870-based usb dongle marketed by Zonetusa.
there must be a thousand thread posts on this topic and a million man hours. tried every single device driver in the Macpup foxy 3 list and none work, including the three or four ralink-specific and 2500/2870-specific ones. why are they in there if they don't work with the specified devices?

Hi Patriot,

That will be fantastic.

I'm using 2.6.30.5 kernel in Puppy 4.3.1, my USB wifi is a Tenda W541U V2.0.

Puppy was an almost perfect install except for this Smile

PostPosted: Sun 26 Sep 2010, 17:10    Post subject:  startup script needed - howto do:  

Thanks a lot for this driver - good function with actual noname usb stick with ralink chipset.
But profile function in Puppy 4.2.1 did not work, as the essid was not saved.

So i had to add some lines to the personal startup script /etc/rc.d/rc.local:
ifconfig ra0 192.168.xxx.xxx up (if you have a static ip like me)
iwconfig ra0 essid "your_essid"
route add default gw 192.168.xxx.xxx (your routers ip here)

and it works!

PostPosted: Thu 14 Oct 2010, 00:40    Post subject: wifi drivers SOLVED for me
Subject description: GOT'EM!
 

Thanks gang for the helpful pointers here in this forum. Since my last post, I've upgraded my netbooks to lucid puppy 5.01, which has all the drivers I needed for both of these netbooks. As for my slackware install, I now use a script to ennable wifi support for that. I'll figure out how or where to install it so I don't have to re-do it on every boot, but for now it's workable. Under puppy, things just work great at bootup and I don't' have to configure anything else. Thanks again!

2. For puppy 4.30+, start network wizard and add it to the approved wpa list
before configuring your wifi network.


Please tell me how to add to approved wpa list.

Well if you use the rt3070sta from "Extras for Puppy 4.3 with 2.6.30.5 kernel"
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=346450#346450
then no extra steps are involved. The new driver is automatically added to the list of WPA-compatible drivers in Puppy's Netork Wizard.
