Been a big fan of Puppy Linux for many years, having a bootable USB stick in your pocket in the IT game is a very handy thing. When I got a new work laptop (ooooooh!) my Puppy stick broke due to drivers and time for an upgrade. Oh work laptop is a Dell E5420, nothing special but not bad either.

After a bit of a search in the forums someone suggested I try Precise Puppy 5.3 and I was mighty impressed, both the LAN and WI-FI worked, yey! I am not sure how mainstream Precise is as a Puppy distro and the word in Puppy land is "Slacko is the future" so hey ho I took Slako 5.3.3 for a walk ..... mmmmmm nope WI-FI totally not recognised, using the corporate Windows build I checked out the hardware its a DW1530 Wireless-N.

Will re-post in Puppy land and come back if I have the answers.
