    Hello, and welcome to Linux Forums.

    To help you, we need some detailed system information. The thread linked to below describes the info needed, and how to find it.

    I have never used Puppy, so I don't know what it uses to manage connections. But i can still help you get the driver up and running.

    the line
    lsusb returns 'bash: lsusb: command not found

    You most likely need to include the "path" to where that command is. Something like this:

    /usr/bin/lsusb

    I don't know where it actually is located on your system. You may be able to locate it with the find or locate commands.

    Code:
    find lsusb
    Code:
    locate lsusb

    Puppy Linux doesn't include lsusb by default.

    You also can download a .pet package to a usb stick and transfer it to you puppy box to install.
