I am working currently with Puppy Linux which i like very much. I successfully configured a LAN internet connection but am having trouble with configuring my laptop which has wireless. Can any one help me to configure the wireless connection please? I have a Linkseys Wireless router connected through my D Link ADSL modem router. Thanks :)

Just use the network wizard in Puppy

If it doesn't work, come back and tell us at what point it fails

Thanks Karamea Dave ...looks like a good reference and I will follow through on it. Agent 24 thanks....one of the problems is that the wireless switch doesn't light up when it is in Puppy although I have no problems with it in Windows...any clues?

Does your wireless card show up in the "puppy network wizard" as shown in the picture http://www.wikihow.com/Image:Snapshot2_293.png ?

Yes it does.......so although my wireless switch doesn't light up as it normally does in Windows, does it still mean that I am a goer?
If I could get Fast Capture for Linux I could take a screenshot.....but I haven't sorted that yet :)

Try configuring it and see if it works anyway.
Maybe Puppy can't run the light but still runs the adapter.
