******
MODERATORS: This thread was specifically set aside to list wireless adapters that are compatible with Puppy. It was allowed to be hijacked by people needing assistance with their wireless devices. WHY?

Among other places in the Puppy forums, those seeking wireless assistance are now posting their questions to three forums and this thread:
1. Advanced Topics » Hardware
2. Advanced Topics » Hardware » Networking
3. Advanced Topics » Hardware » Networking » Wireless
4. Advanced Topics » Hardware » Networking » Wireless / wifi cards confirmed to work in puppy

This makes it veeery difficult to know where you should post your solicitations for assistance. It also makes this list of working adapters unnecessarily difficult to find and use.

There's a lot of useful info in the Puppy forums, so why do you allow this kind of anarchy? Hey, why not just have a free-for-all forum called 'Networking' and allow everyone to fend for themselves? It really wouldn't be much different, would it?

Why should anyone organize info like that below when it's sure to be buried within a few short weeks? Organization is our friend, people!

Updated: October 20, 2009
================================

I was frustrated with the difficulty of finding a network adapter for my old laptop that worked with Puppy, so I consolidated the posts in this thread. Perhaps this compiled list will be useful to others.

In the future, it would be most helpful if posters provided as much information as possible, including any special steps taken to configure the device. The following could be used as a template:

Device Name & version (from package or device):
Puppy versions tested:
Interface (USB, PCMCIA, PCI, mini-PCI?):
Chipset:
Device Driver (name & source):
WiFi Protocols that work (A, B, G, N):
Security Protocols confirmed working (WEP, WPA, WPA2):
Configured with (Wizard, Ndiswrapper, Manual, Other?):
Posted by & date:
Location of Original Post:
Notes & Issues:


Look for the red highlighting that indicates WiFi devices confirmed to work with one of the official 4.xx Puppy versions.

================================
> Devices are organized in each category by their original posting date. That tends to move newer devices, and devices tested with newer versions of Puppy towards the end of the list - a help to those looking for a device that works.
> If you're looking for a specific device, use your browser's search function on this page.

Notes: I have a Compaq laptop with a BCM43xx built-in wifi card which works out of the box in Puppy 213. Scans for wireless perfectly, never fails me. I have used 214 and 215CERC1 without success. Yes I have followed all the suggestions about unloading the faulty driver and using my own driver with ndiswrapper. It sometimes works, but fails to remember that it DID work on reboot

Notes: As can often be the case with a Windoze WiFi set-up, I had to go round and round several times before the adaptor and router would get their act together. If the SSID is hidden, you need to make it visible while you do the set-up.

Notes: the trick to getting this little puppy working was to choose a HEXADECIMAL key when I set up the router (A BT Voyager 2091) rather than using a passphrase. Although the setup wizard found teh network ok, it always failed to give me a DHCP address when I used teh passphrase ! Anyway, working now, so happy boy !

Great work Fishback....long overdue....

Though I hope however you did this is easily maintainable/updated

MODS - a suggestion ,

That Fishback's post be put top of the list on P1, or,

posted as a new thread, and made sticky

This is very important, an inherent difficulty, especially to noobs, as it has been attempted before, but this is the best I've seen, IMHO

Thanks again Fishback

Thanks Aitch.

The lists are very easy to maintain. The devices in each category are arranged by the date they were posted in the forum. That tends to move newer devices, and devices tested with newer versions of Puppy to the end of the lists. That also makes it very easy to add items to the lists - just go to the bottom.

We have a Gigafast USB wireless nic which has worked in all prior versions - for some reason the driver has disappeared in the most recent releases (Fatdog, 4.21, and 4.31b2).

Any idea why that might be?

I recall from other threads that several other Puppy users owned the same nic.

I can't move posts around inside a thread, so moving it to the front isn't an option. I could split it out into it's own thread though, and sticky that. Then I would probably lock this thread and leave a note at the end directing readers to the new thread. I think I'd leave this as a sticky too and retitle it "old list" or something. Later if more stickies started crowding in in this wireless section it could be unstickied to make room.

Sound like a plan?

Apparently the Belkin FSD8053 has a Ralink N-mode chipset.
There's a fair chance that the rt2870sta driver in Puppy 4.3 will work, but if not, install the rt3070sta driver from
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=346450#346450
then reboot and see if that works.
