Porteus 5 WiFi not working

You need to recreate kiosk kernel sources first:
http://www.porteus.org/component/conten ... ernel.html

then compile the wifi driver against them.

Moving the thread to appropriate forum category.

Porteus Server not available after installation

You cant disable firewall in the "Basic" version.

If your kiosks are having troubles connecting to the server then please follow troubleshooting steps from here:

Porteus Server not available after installation

"Basic" version can be installed only on a real PC or in the virtual machine so that you can control it with mouse and keyboard.

Porteus 5.0 Video in browser too fast [solved]

The only truly problematic are Broadcom SDIO chipsets as NVRAM files are conflicting between OEM versions.
Other wifi chipsets can fixed by adding firmware or compiling the drivers from 3rd party repos (mostly Realtek).

Thanks
