You didnt spesify your puppy version and kernel version used.

Anyway, the link you provided has source package for ethernet drivers atl1c and atl1e.

I believe it does not help you with your wireless problem.

There are several threads by Tempestuous for different extra drivers in Drivers section. I suggest you to post your problem to the appropriate kernel spesific thread.
