Exclamation Puppy linux was working fine with wireless card, then reboot and nothing!


i use puppy linux on an old thinkpad r31

i got a wireless pcmcia card working on the laptop in puppy using RutilT (i use a WPA PSK network)

the first time i got the card working i waqs surfing away without a problem. then, i rebooted the computer and suddenly the lights on the pcmcia card dont light up and rutilt says something like 'no network interface' still works fine in xp however.

i have tried deleting the puppy save files and starting afresh but it is still not recognised....this is really weird cuz i know the slot and card work as i use them in xp on the same laptop.

anyone got any ideas,,,,im sure it is puppy that is the problem!

Here and here are a couple of links to the Puppy forum and wiki about setting up a wireless connection.

I hope they help.
