Unhappy Puppy pls come to my network - desperate


I've been trying on and on to connect to the Internet through my router, but no luck.
Yesterday downloaded newest Puppy and my faith has been restored.
I need to ask you guys for guide lines.

my logs:

Code:

Do we need some other commands here?
I believe Puppy's network wizard is the right tool for my misery - but which driver should I load?? 1st off would like to see it work from LiveCD... too inexperienced to install it now..

Any suggestions are appreciated greatly!

yours sincerely,
korben

Your 'dmesg | grep iwl' and 'ifconfig' shows Puppys kernel recognized and loaded the drivers for your wireless network connection and both your eth0 (wired) and wlan0 (wireless) connection are up and running. if you can't establish a wireless connection then you need to check your AP (access point on your wireless router) for its characteristics like SSID, encryption (none (no!), WEP (no!), WPA, etc), key et cetera and configure your wireless connection using the commands from the wireless-tools package or a GUI.

To make searching for Puppy solutions easier

http://www.wellminded.com/puppy/pupsearch.html

Not sure if you are using Pwireless gui or the older connect wizard gui. Above link should help with narrowing down on what you are trying to do.

Does it now? Not to skew the discussion but your "puppysearch" is powered by a popular search engine, the first two pages of results return only entries from a single domain. Using http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/search.php directly we get entries from the same single domain w/o effort...

Quote by some LongTime Murga Linux members

Quote:
By Aitch:
talking of user help, otropogo, I find I get better results using the well-minded search, often

By scottman: added well-minded Puppy search to search bar (very convenient!)

By vtpup: The phpBB search is a difficult even for the experienced.

Also, even though it's posted as a sticky, the majority of newbies don't know about the "wellminded" search. Because people naturally click the search button at the top of the screen, rather than read a forum topic about searching for something by NOT clicking on the button at the top of the screen.

I have a suggestion. Change the hotlink of the search button from http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/search.php to http://wellminded.com/puppy/pupsearch.html

Following post by Pizzasgood: Seconded. (I don't have the power to do it myself, or I'd have done that a long time ago).

I definitely agree about preserving the real search too, because it does have its uses. Filtering by a specific user or section of the forum in particular.
Just trying to help Unspawn.
