Try this instead....from Iguleder. ..Kinda Lucid Puppy 006

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=57371

I tried this on my little Acer netbook when kinda lucid was released.

Wireless worked perfectlt with encyption.

Pwireless 2
Network Wizard >> Dougal
Simple Network
Network Wizard Classic >> Barry

My review.

And use my latest April 2011 technique.if it won't work with Pwireless2.

And quite honestly why not try Wary?

And did you post your specs?????

Chris.

Your frustration is understandable but it's important, in fault-finding, to let us know exactly what you've done. You've installed an 8192cu pet, but don't say whether it was the one by Pemasu for Exprimo, or the one compiled by Tempestuous, for Lucid, which uses a completely different kernel.

After install, did you reboot?

I'm still not sure what you're actual device is...could you perhaps give a link to the product's page?

Have you run Menu>Setup>Internet Connect Wizard? (I'm guessing you would tryInternet by wired or wireless LAN)

Tempestuous has the driver for lucid here:

You do understand that this driver is compatible only with Puppy Lucid versions 5.1 - 5.2.8 ?

The (Realtek) 8192cu driver is definitely compatible with that device ID.

Still nothing happening with usb adapter

By "nothing" you mean that no wifi interface is listed in the Network Wizard?

Ok here are some details:

My system is an Old IBM Thinkpad:

Intel Celeron 550 Mghz
128 Mb Ram
30G Hard Rive
Currently running Windows XP, but very slowly. The wirelss USB Adapter works fine on XP.

The USB Adapter is a mini usb type:

Realtek RTL8188CU 802.11n
It came with a cd that has drivers for Windows, Mac, and Linux

There is a lot of information about Linux on the disk as well as a power point slide show that has instructions but it has a lot of information about teminal prompts and "building" etc. ??

There are files that end in .tar that I think are the drivers but I don't know what to do with them.
rtl8192CU_linux_v2.0.1324.20110126.tar.gz
Description  Her is the driver I think
gz

 Download 
Filename  rtl8192CU_linux_v2.0.1324.20110126.tar.gz 
Filesize  704.07 KB 
Downloaded  234 Time(s)

Your information still doesn't tell us the Puppy version with which you attempted to install the 8192cu driver.

That's the source code, which I have already compiled and packaged as a dotpet for Lucid 5.1 - 5.2.8,
and pemasu has already compiled and packaged for dpup exprimo.

I've tried a few different versions of Puppy on this system and so far the only one I've got to work it 4.3. That's what I'm trying it with.

Yes. And if I run the Internet connection wizard, it says no network interface.

I suppose you installed dpup exprimo 5.X.13 which uses kernel 2.6.39.4 and used the 8192cu I did upload. Since that my uploaded driver works only in dpup exprimo. I just wanted to clarify that.
