Connecting to a network in Puppy Linux

When I bring up this menu, the wireless networks don't load, nor do I get the bottom part of the menu.

I've never been able to setup either my DSL or mobile broadband connections using Puppy so I can't advise. Your NIC details will be relevant though and you will likely get better support in the dedicated forum.

As MC says, better in the Puppy forum.......

But You want to click on the Ath0 button and supply your Wireless details.

I am a Puppy user, but I happen to be using Windows just at this moment.
I can swap and give assistance if you need it.

The Ath0 button does not appear. It's my guess that it is because my wireless antennas are connected via USB ports and not built in (these machines are very old).

What button do you see?
Did you try the AutoLoad USB button?

Do you have Linux drivers for the card.?

Do you have Windows drivers for it?

I don't see any of the buttons on the bottom half of the screen (no autoload USB button). I see the etho button, but I have to drill through a wall to connect via ethernet.

I have Windows driver for the device. It isn't a card, but it plugs into USB.

I don't think Linux drivers are on the CD

What version of Puppy is this?
What DO you see in that windows you showed in your first post.
Is that from the machine you're trying to connect or a different one?

Did you start the machine with that USB Network Adapter plugged in?
Searching the Puppy forums I find this thread:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=550645
and there are other later Puppy versions you could try.
