Can't Find Network.


I run puppy racy and precise from a multi YUMI set-up.
I now can't get online.
The USB wireless dongle is a TP-LINK WDN3200
On screen states no network config.
But this applies to a wired network.
I want a wireless network from my TP-LINK dongle but this is not mentioned at all. Driver req. maybe.?

Can anyone sort me out, it used to work once. Same with racy and precise. Ray. thank you.

It sounds like as missing module, so the kernel doesn't know it's there. Run lspci & lsusb in turn and look for the wifi. If it's not there, google for a linux module. What do you get?

Are you sure that this device works with Linux? USB network dongle manufacturers' support of Linux can be quite hit or miss.

I did find this old LQ thread that might give you some leads: https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...00-4175439804/
