So you have got a copy of Puppy Linux and now want to connect to the net via WiFi. But How? It's easy.


Go to menu/setup/internet connection wizard and click it.


You will get this window.


Now click the Wired or Wireless Lan button.


You will see this.



Here we are going to select the first option, Simple Network Setup SNS


Next Window.


Here we see 2 options.


Is the eth0 ( that should connect without user input when the os first boots)


Option 2

wlan0 we need to click this.


And we get.


Now here we select our SSID or network name.

Then you enter the WiFi key.

And select the encryption type in most cases its WPA, Do not forget to do this or it wont connect.

Then hit connect.


If all went well you will see this.


Click OK and you are done.



Please note this works with live disc also but unless you create a save file you will have to do it each time you reboot.


All screenshots are from my pc.
