8-bit,
I encourage your efforts to compile kernel modules, but I warn that it requires a certain amount of technical knowledge, particularly when the process fails, and you need to troubleshoot.

It would be much easier to install the 2.6.33.5 kernel which Barry provided for Lupu as a dotpet -
http://bkhome.org/blog/?viewDetailed=01648

But I also remind you that the kernel-supplied r8192_pci driver does not support friedsonjm's wifi device (PCI ID 10ec:8172). It might be worthwhile telling us what your device ID is.
If you have the same ID, the only driver which will work is the vendor-supplied version.

Sub_title: My realtek rcl8192se pci readout
 

Ok, I again did some checking using the same "lspci -n" at a prompt and got the same thing for the wireless device.

# lspci -n
00:00.0 0600: 1022:9601
00:01.0 0604: 1179:9602
00:04.0 0604: 1022:9604
00:06.0 0604: 1022:9606
00:07.0 0604: 1022:9607
00:11.0 0106: 1002:4391
00:12.0 0c03: 1002:4397
00:12.1 0c03: 1002:4398
00:12.2 0c03: 1002:4396
00:13.0 0c03: 1002:4397
00:13.1 0c03: 1002:4398
00:13.2 0c03: 1002:4396
00:14.0 0c05: 1002:4385 (rev 3c)
00:14.2 0403: 1002:4383
00:14.3 0601: 1002:439d
00:14.4 0604: 1002:4384
00:18.0 0600: 1022:1200
00:18.1 0600: 1022:1201
00:18.2 0600: 1022:1202
00:18.3 0600: 1022:1203
00:18.4 0600: 1022:1204
01:05.0 0300: 1002:9712
0e:00.0 0280: 10ec:8172 (rev 10)
14:00.0 0200: 10ec:8136 (rev 02)

You will notice the line 10ec:8172 (rev 10) matches.

Also, as to the technical knowledge required to troubleshoot a compile when something goes wrong all I can say is I am a beginner when it comes to that.

Also, in posting a win2000 driver for the device, I am just trying to help get some users on line wirelessly.

Yes, I'm aware that you're a beginner, that's why I have been trying to gently point you in the right direction.

Yes, you have the same device ID as friedsonjm, and as I have twice mentioned; the kernel-supplied r8192_pci driver does not support this device.

So there's no point in attempting to use the kernel-supplied driver, regardless of whether you use Barry's precompiled 2.6.33.5 kernel package, nor if self-compiled.

The only Linux driver compatible with your device is the vendor-supplied version

I downloaded the source you suggested and again, after making sure I had the kernel source and devx sfs files installed, I extracted all the files in the realtek source package, navigated to the directory containing them and as per the readme included, opened a terminal there and typed make.
I got warnings of routines used by the driver not being found and also files needed for the compile not found.
I examined the make file also, but not knowing what to change or add for the compile to complete without error 2ing out leaves me at a loss. So for now, I will be happy to be able to connect with the windows driver and ndiswrapper and leave the linux driver compile to those that have an idea of what they are doing.
So for now, no hand holding is required.
But thank you for trying.

PostPosted: Wed 27 Oct 2010, 20:26    Post_subject: I am using Puppy 5 and...  

I was initially frustrated but used the win driver with ndiswrapper and rebooted: It works but oddly, I have to do this or it won't connect

iwconfig wlan0 essid linksys rate 11M

It sets the rate at 54 but it seems to work... the rate had initially been some odd number like 63 and it could not negotiate.

It would be nice to have had this work, and it seems that no one has a pet for the particular kernel with Puppy 5 yet

Thanks for posting this:-)

Ndiswrapper does work without issue BUT like I posted before, native drivers seem to be more conservative with power use. Ndiswrapper just runs the device at full speed and power.

Sub_title: Wireless LAN working now
 

I downloaded the r8192cd_pci-k2.6.33.2.pet driver and loaded it and wlan0 came up. I configered the network and my wireless network is finally working now. This is fantastic news. I am one step closer to replacing Windows 7 with Puppy. I am currently booting Puppy from a flash drive. Windows 7 won't let me repartition the harddrive to dual boot Puppy and Windows 7 so I plan to replace Windows 7 with Puppy. I'll have to try and connect to my wireless laser printer next to see if that will work.

Thanks for your help!!!

Robmitchsr:

I always advise....keep Windows >>>> enjoy Puppy.

You might just want it the one time.

You can slim it down....reduce System Restore or delete it.

Remove Nortons crap etc....
a basic free AV is enough.

Plenty of fixes and links here.
