I am at a loss knowing how to connect to a Wi-Fi spot using Carolina.

 

I have several programs on my distro but I've no idea which one or how to use it.

 

Sorry, I'm not even sure which distro I'm using now. it might be Pup Lina 1.2.

 

Thanks.

Well. My distro of Carolina didn't have that program. I wish it did. And not any user friendly application to connect.

I'm happy with my Precise Puppy on my XP notebook but I wanted something with some more eye candy for my faster Win 7 notebook.

I've been trying to find a Puppy program for a delayed shutdown. I've tried gShutdown and qShutdown but neither works. Seems there is an issue with my Desktop or Display Manager.

The other thing on my Wish List is a program that would insert pre-programmed text after a couple keystrokes. I currently use a Windows program that will insert text after typing "/" then a character assigned to pre-set string of text (AllChars).

Sorry it did not work.

With carolina it's best to ask the creator. I suggest you go here. Beginners Help ( Start Here)  on the http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/ forum.

PC specs? We can do lots with this.

Thanks again NickAu1.

 

I finally found the Connection Wizard in Carolina. It was in the Control Panel. I'm not in a WiFi zone now but I'll try it in a few days.

 

Carolina is nice but it's initial layout certainly could benefit from some tweaking, which I'll start doing once I'm sure I can get it to connect to wifi.

It's odd. I can use the method to connect wifi using precise puppy and it works fine.

 

But the same method using Carolina doesn't connect.

 

I think it's because the Carolina Puppy does not recognize my D-Link USB modem (125 model. I think, very basic), while Precise Puppy does. (I can see it flashing...or not flashing).

 

There must be some setting in Carolina that I've not set up correctly that keeps it from seeing the modem.

 

My built-in modem isn't working right, so I have to use the USB one.
