Does any LiveCD support wlan-ng wifi cards?


I have a D-Link DWL650p1 wireless card that works flawlessly in Slackware w/wlan-ng. I'm looking around for a live cd distro that will be able to use this card. So far, have download/burned Slax and Mepis, both do not work.

I'm on a slow (256) connection, so a few hours of downloding to find out it does not work is not an option. Any ideas?

Slax doesn't even know there is a card in my pcmcia slot, and Mepis sees the card, but can't load a driver for it.

Knoppix 3.7 supports wlan-ng. I use it with a DWL-122. Later versions went to ndiswrapper. I don't know if your particular card will work though.

I think puppy should work with that...(or GrafPup if you want more design apps) Just go through the setup wireless wizard.

Also - kubuntu with the kwifi manager should do it

Bought a new card, a Linksys WPC54G, and found native drivers for it. I've given up on the old card, and just going to stick with Slackware.

Thanks for the responses, anyway. It WAS a help.
