Subject description: In Barebone Wary
 

I have a Puppy Linux install and want to install a wireless LAN... I can download the driver off the site... but where do I install it too and how do I install it?

Hi Rubantin

Its very common that the driver is included already depending on your specific Wlan card. You might need to provide some data here.

I think most important would be what version of Puppy Linux you are running and if you know, what kind of a Wlan chip that is present.

And did you just try to connect? Puppy does not require additional drivers normally.

Best

I am using a barebone distro of WARY PUPPY 5.3, so the driver miight not be in there... I inserted the usb WLAN and used the internet connection wizard to configure it but the only one it saw was the MB LAN card... not the wireless...

The chipset for the WLAN is RTL8188CUS...

Thanks

I would not know anything about Wary bare bone and neither if its possible to download the driver for this. But as said in another post, you might try Slacko and/or Lucid.

The driver download is the official one and it is for Linux... So, I just need to know where to "unzip" it too and how to install it...

Thanks
