I was having the same trouble getting wifi to work on my Lenovo S10 netbook with Quirky that I had with Puppy 4.3.1. So I switched back to the ndiswrapper method, which works fine. Here are some instructions.

1. Download the b43wifi attachment below and extract it to /root.

2. Go to the folder /root/b43wifi and open the script named "wifi" in a text editor.

3. Add your ESSID to Line 8 and your WEP key to Line 9.

4. Save and exit.

5. Test run the script with the command
Code:
./wifi
Or just to be on the safe side, run each line individually so you can track the result.

6. Run
Code:
iwconfig
and verify that wlan0 now has an IP address.

7. If it does, launch a browser and start surfing!

8. Once your testing is complete, drag the "wifi" file onto the desktop.

9. Use the "wifi.png" graphic as its icon.
