Install Puppy Linux on my Old ThinkPad R60

Version: Slacko Puppy 5.7

  • Problem: Wi-Fi not working. Solution:
  • First: rfkill list
  • if it says softblock yes, try Fn F5. If it doesn't help do: sudo rfkill unblock wifi; sudo rfkill unblock all
  • Then:

# cd /lib/firmware/
# cp iwlwifi-3945-2.ucode iwlwifi-3945-1.ucode
# ifconfig wlan0 up

And try to connect.
