I normally use JioFi with WIndows (via USB WiFI adapter).

I would like to use JioFi with Puppy Linux. I want a small Linux distro installed on one of the partitions on my test PC.

None of the WiFi adapters I have work OOB with Puppy Linux (including TP-WN722N , V1 !).

Any easy way to do the above?

For e.g. this adapter : https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32973679351.html ?
OR
I have a D-Link DSL 2750U. Repeater mode ?


EDIT : using bionicpup64-8.0-uefi

LOL, I dont have a clue, last time I struggled with USB dongles on linux was in ubuntu many years ago and I read something about installing and configuring "usbmodeswitch" package.

The adapter from AE mentioned in the OP did not work with JioFi + Puppy Linux. JFYI.

I had got a TP-Link wifi pcie adapter (150 mbps wifi-N) which has a Qualcomm Atheros chipset and that worked out of the box with mainstream linux distros since the last 4-5 years.

Ya, all my USB WiFi adapters work with Lubuntu.
I wanted a real small Linux distro, that's why I chose Puppy.

I'll wait till next month for the next Lubuntu and install it to a partition, I want a 'proper/full' install with persistence.
