Will it ever happen? Apart from a very old version.

As you can probably see if you search the details of when I registered here and the threads that I have posted, I have been interested in wireless support for some time - with a reasonably recent version.

Oh and btw what happened to DSL-N? Seems to have slowed.

You could try building them with DSL 4.0 alpha1 and reporting back your findings (re: ipw2200 module)

Its interesting Puppy Linux has support for ipw2200 and many other major distro's, it is popular and a must have for wifi.
Although i realize you have other priorities.

This has been answered so many times before.

This distribution and the volunteer work that I do, is not a paid or commercial venture.
This distribution does not have a team of developers.

I do not own or have access to everything that is new or currently popular.

So it should be common sense to realize that ...

It will happen when someone in the community of DSL users who happens to own or have access to such device decides to make and then contribute the module.

Other small distributions have community contributed code and modules.

To make posts about other distributions (when they are not 49MB or even the same kernel/modules) and a personal attack on my priorities is really not helpful. Doing such is actually very rude.

If you own such device, instead of being rude, why don't you step up to the plate and contribute.

fwiw I personally didn't read these posters as trying to be rude or attacking any priorities.  They're just trying to get their wireless to work.

I intend to have another crack at trying to compile this driver soon, but all I got last time were various errors tthat were difficult for me to interpret.
