Need assistance with wifi installed firmware on cooking version with puppy linux download
  • techkathytechkathy March 2011
    I installed intel 3945 firmware for my wireless card.  I had to download it using macpup 511 since I did not have a wired ethernet connection in my room to use so i have to use a wireless card.  I downloaded the firmware and unpacked it but I suspect it is in the wrong filename and in the wrong place.  I am using the cooking version of slitaz.  I need to get the wireless working so I can demo the os to potential investors in my project using slitaz.  Please assist me in getting this working.  Thanks.
