After hours of poking around in "Pwireless" and the newer one I managed to get connected. It did take swapping out my cisco pcmcia card for a netgear for it to happen though.
I had no problems with getting the Aironet to connect, but the GUI is definitely fiddly. FWIW, when I say, 'no problems getting it to connect', I'm referring to my test WiFi network, which is running completely open. The house network is running WPA2 with AES, so that's a no-go without ndiswrapper.
Overall, though, I'm very impressed with what's been achieved with Puppy Linux. XP Embedded has it beaten on GUI responsiveness and Aironet support, but for a first shot at an out-of-the-box distro specific to the WebDT it's damned good. I'm looking forward to seeing how it progresses over the next few months.
