Link fixed now to devx: http://www.smokey01.com/pemasu/SnowPuppy513RC_002/

Thanks, I'm downloading the devx.sfs file, and as soon as it is done i'll try the driver and let you know how it works.

pemasu, your .pet driver works fine, I'm posting with it via netbook and Snow Puppy on usb stick. Smile
Now I will be able to test it intensively, installing different softs to customise it.
Thanks for efficient support and thanks to all those (Barry, and the gang) who contributed to bring Puppy to this high level of sofistication and compatibility with hardware ranging from very old to newest state of the art gizmo.
Puppy Rocks ! I'm loving it !

Good to hear. I will make drivers folder to the ftp site for possible further use of that driver. And thank you of the feedback.

Remember to use menu - system - boot manager - add new module so that wireless module is loaded automatically after reboot. And the module needs to be unloaded when you use boot manager.

Sound advice, I also blacklisted the RT2870 USB module as it kept on loading and fighting the RT3070 module for supremacy, like what's going on in Ivory Coast.

All seems OK now, the beast even autoconnect to the router with the Lamewifi.pet I've installed.

Yet a little later:

Well there are some strange things happening:

The old connection manager diplays a signal strengt of 70/70 for all APs ??? As for the frisbee manager it only shows the strongest signals.

And WTF it keeps on disconnecting after 3 to 15 minutes of use. Sad

Did you use old network wizard first ? Or Barrys Simple Network Setup ?

If you used network wizard you should delete saved profiles before you try frisbee, I think. And reboot is recommended also.

Otherwise I dont have new advices atm. There is possibility that all those connection apps conflicts each other, I thought about removing network wizard and Barrys SNS but then I thought that interexisting experience is needed anyway.

I have used frisbee only from the beginning without using the other connection apps and I dont have connection loses at all. It connects straight after suspend also.

eztuxer, I found possible bug in my compile, there isnt wpa_supplicant usage enabled in config.mk file as default. I need to recompile the driver. There is really too many options I dont have a glue of their meaning. I would need Tempestuous help in this really. But i will try.

eztuxer, rt3070sta-v2401-k26357.pet is reuploaded on the previous upload post. If you want, you could try it. It has now wpa_supplicant enabled, rfkill also. At least frisbee relies heavily on wpa_supplicant.

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=483473#483473

And by the way, lamewifi.pet is probably meant for older kernels. It has its own mini wpa. I dont know how compatible it really is with this build. It didnt drop my connection at least.

Thank you for the advice (removing saved files from network wizard), and concerning Lame wifi, I'll give it a try tomorrow.
Anyhow with this driver it has less sensitivity (received signal) frisbee doesn't see most the networks around here only 1 or 2 among 8-10...
For the moment I'll just use a USB to 3G smartphone connection instead, so I can keep on installing softs etc...
I'm joining the .pet driver that works fantastic on 511 quickset edition, may be it could be of use to identify the driver version it was based upon.
Other than that, all this is flying way above my head, and far beyond my knowledge.

Tempestuous has used even newer driver which has also firmware included in his pet for lucid 5.1.1 and kernel 2.6.33.2. It will need research for me also.
Quote:

rt3370sta for RT3070/RT3370
RT3070 wifi devices are supported, confusingly, also by the rt2870sta opensource driver already in Puppy. But there are quite a number of more recent RT3070 devices which are only supported by the latest proprietary Ralink driver. To add further to the confusion, Ralink has changed the name of this proprietary driver from rt3070sta to rt3370sta. This driver now includes support for the very latest RT3370 wifi chips as well.

This was from Tempestuous.

I used now the same driver source and included the firmware also to the pet.

So you need to use for testing rt3370sta module for your wireless.

OK DOOKEY
So far so good, I've downloaded and replaced the .pet (with wpa)
Removed network manager .conf file from etc/, and didn't use the old network manager.
Frisbee conected all by itself, and also diconnected all by itself.
Next try after I remove Lame wifi which might just be another culprit.
We’ll see if it does last any longer. ::crossing fingers::

Using the rt3370STA.pet ... with puppy 520 RC
No problem so far, I think the conflict came from frisbee and other manager fighting for command.
I should try Snow "Tumpi" pup without frisbee to be sure.

Thank you of testing. There has been issues before when many wireless capable apps are installed. Frisbee has been most reliable for me and the others are more familiar to most, so I havent done decision yet what to remove.

If this latest driver really works, I could include it to the next Snow Puppy. It would need new module prefer list also to avoid manual struggle with rt2xxx included with kernel.

Crazy question from me to both of you.

"I also blacklisted the RT2870 USB module as it kept on loading and fighting the RT3070 module for supremacy, like what's going on in Ivory Coast. "

I know that Jemimah trust that RFKILL is what makes Fluppy, Snowy and Inpu Puppy different to many other puppies.

But could not these things explain why even Inpu can fail to boot.

I mean if modules compete to get USB going and I make use of both USB mouse and USB keyboard and have two screens too so maybe the script sense this and some kind of collusion of priority take place?

Just my naivety shining through.
