Hello everyone,
My father (74 years old) brought a HP-Mini Netbook 10inch screen Atom Processor Model = 110-1004TU and wiped Windows XP off it without making a backup disc.
He wants to run my TEENpup 2010 Mini Beta but I only supplied the Wifi Driver for the EeePC which doesn't work with it.

So I need a Driver (Pet) for about Netbook that has been compiled with the 2.6.26.? kernel that came with Puppy 4.2.1

So if anyone here running the above HP Netbook has got it working or knows where to get the correct Wifi Driver It would make my father very happy.

Also if a later Puppy or Quicky or Woof is know to work with this Netbook, please let me know as well.

A Google search indicates that the HP 110 has a Broadcom-based wifi device.
As I have reported many times on this forum, HP and Dell mess with the Broadcom wifi hardware to the point where the opensource Linux b43 driver won't work. This situation will change with the very latest b43 driver in the latest kernels (2.6.32 and 2.6.33) so you could try the various alpha Puppy versions - Quirky and Lupu.

Easier still, get "Special Puppy431 for broadcom 4312 wifi cards"
