Precise 5.7.1
I notice the thread http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=84718deals with a lan wireless adapter I use as , no doubt , do countless other potential users.
They would be walking away in droves scratching their heads and going to other distros as there is only a limited fix by "pemasu" for the one distro only (5.4.2) and it has not been incorporated in subsequent releases so none of them are useable for people with that adapter . I last looked at 5.7.1.

I see also a bug noted in this threadhttp://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=85477with glipper failing to load reliably each time , sometimes it loads most times it does not and restarting the x server fixes it . If you are deep in the middle of something and want to copy text then everything has to be shut down first.

What is the point of continually updating distributions with new features if old problems are not fixed? I can't use any precise distro except 5.4.2. I guess the others are like that too huh?[/b]

Had a look at connecting either of my two WIFI adaptors .
Neither worked and Pemasu's fix is the only one that can be used with the following two adaptors

Digitech USB 2.0 Wireless dongle 802.11N
TP-Link Wireless N USB Adaptor TL-WN723N


Both work with this patch but only with Puppy Precise 5.4.1 AFAIK
Pemasu's patch is attached
I will fill in the references to forum posts here as I find them again

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=84718

Hopefully some kind soul will fix this in all distros as anyone new trying to set up their adaptor will just give up and chuck Puppy out.
They work simply with any Windows version I have used since 2000 Pro of course

I compile 8192cu for precise 5.6.1, the thing is that with these kernel modules they only work for the kernel you compile it for. I compiled this in precise 5.6.1 that has kernel 3.2.44 so it will only work in puppy that has kernel 3.2.44.

only for precise 5.6.1 needs testing cuzz i dont have the wifi dongle, so cant test.
