I have an old clunker Gateway laptop which Puppy has resurrected from the dead. However, I cannot get online, and unless I do, this will just be a paperweight.
I have tried everything to install this Belkin card (which works fine in Windows), over and over. My experience is similar to this guy's:
I tried the pcnet_cs driver. The axnet_nc Nothing.
Ndiswrapper does not work with any of the Windows drivers (DOS, 95, NT), no matter which *.INF file I select.
I also tried editing the /etc/pcmcia/config.opts file according to this http://tuxmobil.org/pcmcia_ci10403.html
and then tried
Still no go. The lights on the Belkin blink, but there's no connection and neither eth0 nor wlan0 exist. Pinging, I get "network not found."
A seemingly hopeless situation.
I'm in love with Puppy, but it seems that Puppy just hates this Belkin card.
Any help greatly appreciated.
