Network Problem


I recently installed Puppy Linux on my Acer Aspire One. I have tried connecting to a number of un-encrypted wireless networks and to my router with an ethernet cable. The system regognizes the network, but an error appears stating that the DHCP client failed to negotiate with it. I tried adding the pet pack update thing from the website, but it didn't solve the problem. Does anyone have suggestions? Please explain in simple terms. Thanks.

Welcome to LQ.

Wireless, it could be a whole host of reasons. A good site

Have you a network card(& cable it in) so you would run
dhcpcd eth0
Or a wifi card
dpcpcd wlan0

Linux drivers need firmware. As root, run
lspci
and see what your network cards are. For cable, you need
1 Kernel module
2. Firmware

I'm experiencing the same, on puppy lucid 5.2.8.
I have no connection issues on 5.2.5. In fact, had no connection issues on this 5.2.8 after installing, but now won't connect.

Dpcpcd and ispci return 'command not found'.

This is a netbook.

OK, No dhcpcd? Have you dhclient? that's the same, same options etc.

The copmmand is lspci, that is L(for Lucifer)spci, like the command ls. Sorry if I wrote it otherwise.

I resolved it by installing and using frisbee.

Thanks!
