Thanks Blackadder, I never gave a thought to the fact I could use Win drivers when running Puppy. Will give it a try.

Cheers Gonçal

hi blackadder

I did try it and ndiswrapper loaded the .inf file and modprobe'd it and everything was fine as the green LED on the wifi device started flashing already. I am now in the stage of trying to actually connect to the network which is encrypted with a key.

Goncal,
There is a section in the HowTo for the wifi beta dot pup that should help you get setup for encrypted connection. There is also a rather old wiki page on WiFi connection.

Hope this helps.

thanks I discovered that WPA encryption is apparently trickier than other keys so I need to gather some free time and put it into solving the issue. I am now watching web TV on WinXP and really wish to leave that behind for Linux.

btw I just installed Zenwalk on an ex2 partition on my laptop which did not seem to be able to recognise the Alcatel 121g WiFi USB adapter either so will just go back to Puppy.

Goncal,
Don't use WPA myself, but part of the thread on wireless network drivers has recently been about WPA. Look here:

Hi BlackAdder,

Gave a very quick look at the thread you suggested and it looks very promising as there have been many additions since I last visited.

Must really give it a try. Problem is, I am often away from home so I can only do some work during periods when I do not budge too much.

thanks cheers Gonçal
