I find it handy to have a spare Netgear WNCE2001 laying around while sorting out wireless issues.

Ohh, I know a wireless usb that will work with puppy......



Your smartphone.

Plug in your wifi connected smartphone to PC using usb cable.
Select USB tethering ON in settings of phone.
Run "ip link" command in terminal it should give you interface name like usb? or enp?s??u?. (in place of ? mark there will be some numbers). On my system it's usb0.

Be sure to run "ip link" command after selecting usb tethering on phone, or it will not show the interface name.

Then run command "dhcpcd usb0" (replace the interface name you got).

Done. That should do it.
You got to have smartphone though.
