so i've followed the steps by 'danleff' as posted to get my atheros wifi working via ndiswrapper.
http://www.goosee.com/puppy/wikka/WifiAndPcmcia
but, i can only get my card to acquire an ip address and work if i open a terminal and enter the following:

modprobe ndiswrapper
ifconfig wlan0 up
iwconfig wlan0 key *** channel ** essid **
ifconfig wlan0 up
dhcpcd -G 192.168.0.1 wlan0

i HAVE placed the above lines in my rc.local file, but these settings are not applied at startup; i have to run terminal and enter them manually each time. so, i am wondering why it is not working... do i need to append the module locations specified as below in rc.local?

/usr/bin/ndiswrapper -m
/sbin/modprobe ndiswrapper
/usr/sbin/iwconfig wlan0 key ***
/.etc/dhcpc/dhcpcd -G 192.168.0.1 wlan0

thanks for any help.

on further research i find that at startup puppy now hangs because "/.etc/dhcpc/dhcpcd does not exist"
also, when i do get puppy to boot, i have to manually enter wifi settings through terminal.. AND delete the "dhcpcd-wlan0.pid" file, then run dhcpcd again to acquire ip address and be up and running.

HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, in your example, you have an extra 2 lines that also may be a problem;

modprobe ndiswrapper
ifconfig wlan0 up
iwconfig wlan0 key *** channel ** essid **
ifconfig wlan0 up
dhcpcd -G 192.168.0.1 wlan0



It probably should be;

modprobe ndiswrapper
iwconfig wlan0 key *** channel ** essid **
dhcpcd -G 192.168.0.1 wlan0
