Wireless not connecting
I have set the wireless modem to the highest level of security it has, which is WEP unfortunately. I have tried it with both 64 bit and 128 bit keys.
I'm very impressed with the Puppy installation of the wireless card on the laptop – it was completely automatic (in stark contrast to the nightmare when I tried Lubuntu). The laptop sees the network immediately and I have set it to WEP secure and put in the password, but it doesn't succeed in connecting.
I have taken the risk of briefly trying the modem without any security to check whether security was part of the problem, but that didn't work either.
Hardware is a cable modem with a RJ45 cable to the wireless modem and another RJ45 cable to my PC. I'm trying to connect to the wireless network from a Laptop with Puppy 5.2.8 on. Perhaps it's not permitted to have the PC connected as well?
