PostPosted: Sun 24 Jul 2011, 18:01    Post_subject:  madwifi-0.9.4
Sub_title: 2008-02-13 for Puppy 3.01
 

I don't checked if someone already compiled this, but, since I'am actively supporting puppy 3.01 series, I have compiled

madwifi-0.9.4
- http://www.dokupuppylinux.co.cc/programs:wireless

it contains kernel modules (2.6.21.7) for wireless adapters based on atheros chipset

It's worth mentioning that Puppy 3.x already contains the MADWiFi (ath_pci) driver, as standard.

Is this version significantly different, such as having been patched to support aircrack-ng, for example?

Yes, but certainly not all Atheros wifi chipsets. Specifically the ath_pci driver supports the Atheros AR5xxx series of wifi devices, in PCI and Cardbus form.

That's good, it's exactly the information I was asking for, and what was absent from the first post.

This is the part that's relevant to Puppy -

These are not relevant to the average Puppy user, in the normal client mode -
