PostPosted: Sat 19 May 2012, 12:43    Post subject:  How to use Asus WL-167G V3 USB wireless adapter?  

Hi all another newbie wrestling with Linux
I purchased an asus WL-167G V3 usb wireless adapter as it is compatible with linux, but I cant get it to run on Puppy.
It runs fine on Linux Mint 12 but when I try to connect it to Puppy nothing happens.
there is a cd with all the drivers on I would think but as I'm using puppy it will not play.
Has anyone got any ideas please?
thanks
edit
the laptop I'm running is an IBM T30 20gb hard drive.

thanks for the replies
cthisbear
I,m running Puppy 5.2.8 I've checked on the internet connection wizard and
Realtek RTL8192S is not on that list, so now I have to put this question to the wireless section?
nilsonmorales
I did what you suggested but it didnt make any sense to me! there was nothing about asus only intel
as i said I am a newbie!

lspci is quite useless to determine a USB device ID. You need -
Code:
lsusb

or
Code:
cat /proc/bus/usb/devices


According to Google, the USB ID of the WL-167 V3 is 0b05:1791.
If true, the compatible vendor-supplied Linux driver is 8712u (not the similar 8192cu driver).

OK, the 8712u driver for Puppy Lucid versions 5.1 - 5.2.8 is available here -
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=462469#462469

For other newbies with the same wifi dongle who may stumble upon this post, it should be obvious, but I will spell it out: the driver I linked to is only compatible with the Puppy versions I just mentioned.

nilsonmorales :

You woz wrong on this occasion.
But mate you chipped in and tried to help.
Keep it up.

I have posted many a wrong answer,
and been found out by Sir Tempe >> tempestuous
to be incorrect at times.

Nobody knows it all.
When you meet that fella....run 4 the hills.

And I hope >> pedrothefish...replies back.

Cheers....Chris.

cthisbear
I went to the site you suggested and tried Slacko which found the asus and worked first time!
nilsonmorales

Hi all back again
thanks to tempestuous for the correct driver 8712u it was found by the puppy wireless wizard but I couldnt get it to connect properly It just would not connect,spent hours faffing about.
I then found this website
http://www.wikihow.com/Set-up-a-Wireless-Network-in-Puppy-Linux
Copied it step by step and at last it worked correctly.
In Slacko it connected with any faffing about no extra drivers needed.
I will probably not go with puppy because If go to other houses with different
wireless connections I cant face all that faffing about trying to connect.
Thanks again for your inputs
