Here is the link for one that will work for Porteus and I am using it. https://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Edimax-EW- ... Sw-btasLLj
I just like Slackware because I think it teach you about Linux to build packages where Ubuntu is like Windows you just install programs you want.

Is this USB stick working with your customized Porteus system or a neko one Jack?

Have you tried this less expensive one? https://www.ebay.com/itm/Wireless-802-1 ... 1783734578

I don't care Jack. I was just trying to see what you tested your USB WiFi with. It might help others reading this thread.
