Subject description: Solved, with no one's help...whatever...
 

Hey, I need the driver mentioned in the title. Puplite5 does not give the "use WPA anyway" option for some reason... a way to set this manually would work fine.

Looked in the Drivers section of the forum, and I didn't see a Puppy420 thread, or I woulda gone there.

FWIW the driver is for a Rosewill RNX-EasyN1 USB wireless adapter.

This is simple. I shouldn't still be wondering where to find my driver.

Do I need to look at another distro?

Figured it out meself, after doing some research.

Blacklisted the following modules...
Code:
rt2800usb
rt2x00usb


Loaded the following module...
Code:
rt3070sta


Got the "Puppy5.1-WPA-hotfix.pet" from here...

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=448997#448997

Turned it into a tarball, extracted the file, and dumped it in the appropriate place. Would've used PetGet except that Puplite5 is still Puppy420, and won't accept 5xx *.pet files... yes, I know about the Puppy5 compatibility button, but I can't use that until I get (wireless) networking going...

The replacement file from that hotfix enabled me to have the little "override" button for WPA encryption... which I used.

Problem solved. Thanks for everyone's help Rolling Eyes

Our wireless experts must have taken an unauthorized break yesterday. Their pay will be docked accordingly. Laughing Thanks for posting the solution anyway. Smile
