Subject description: No luck in getting wireless connection
 

I went through the network wizard, and tried all the others, but to no avail. I tried manually configuring the IP, gateway, DHCP etc., but nothing.

I'm not sure what wifi card model (anybody know where i can find such info?) I have an HP DV9500T notebook from 2007.

Please help!

Welcome NYTE RYDA! Run this lead and upload as suggested.

For the [lspci] bit you can: lspci -nn | grep -i network

.. in place of the full dump.

Yes, Google.

It appears you have the notorious Broadcom wifi chipset. You will probably need the proprietary Broadcom wifi driver, compatible with Puppy versions 5.1 - 5.2.8 here -

Follow the instructions in that post carefully, especially the part about blacklisting the "ssb" driver.

I used piratesmack's pet >>> broadcom_sta-5.6.48.36-i486.pet

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?mode=attach&id=34219

to get the wireless working

/////////

Eth 0 at first boot is seen as

>>> Reverse Engineered NForce Ethernet Driver

Eth 1 >>> is not seen.

////////////

I installed the broadcom_sta-5.6.48.36-i486.pet

and Restarted X server.

"""""""

From the connect icon

I selected >> Internet by Wireles or Wired Lan

run the Classic Network Wizard .....
>> not the >> Simple Network Wizard..

I selected >> Eth 1

and I installed the Firewall first >>> old habits.

I ran the Classic Network Wizard again >> Eth 1

I first clicked on >> Test wlan0

and Auto DHCP

A message appears.

( Dialogue box >> No Add to list )

Interface selected uses the WL module not included
in our list of modules supporting WPA encryption.
So press >> add to list >> OK >> OK

click on >>> Wireless >> Scan

Select one of the available networks.....>> my hidden network

tick >>WPA2

as I run >> WPA2-PSK (Wi-Fi Protected Access 2 with Pre-Shared Key)

add my user name into >> Profile Name and >> Essid

type my password into >> Shared Key

Clicked >> Save and >> Use this Profile.

The Wizard connects >> acquiring connection

and then I repeat the step

>> Click again >> Test wlan0 and Click on Auto DHCP

Xdialog reports >>> Network Configuration of wlan0 Successful

Do you want to save this configuration

I click >> Yes....and >> Done

>>> You have finished running Dougal's Network Wizard

Clicked >>> Yes Set as Default...>> Clicked OK

Posting from Puppy Lucid 5.28 now. via wireless.

"""

Ethernet 0 >>> displays now as >> Nvidia Ethernet

Ethernet 1 shows as wireless
>> WL >> Pci Broadcom 802,11a/b/g/n wireless

"""""""

Also posting this>> Sound issue. >> Dell

Terrible Puppy bark

So I ran the Alsa Sound Wizard from Control panel >> wizard wizard
selected >> single card...it runs
I select >> Nvidia Corp MCP79 High Definition Audio

Perfect on a test mp3...True Blue.

Thanks Chris.

It would have been appropriate for the original poster to indicate the result.
