View Full Version : WG511 Not Working After Install

12-11-2004, 12:20 AM
Hi Guys-
I installed Knoppix Operator today onto my laptop hard drive. The LiveCD detected my netgear WG511, but once installing, this no longer works. I can run the following:
ifconfig eth1 up

Here is what I get when I type ipconfig for eth0:
ip address

If I type iwconfig, I get the following:
ESSID: "Shadow"
Mode: Managed

I have to run those steps everytime I turn on the computer and I still cannot get onto the internet. How do I get internet access since the system now sees the card?

Thanks! :)

You could try your query at the above link.
What kind of laptop are you running?
Do you set your ip statically or with dhcp?
Can you ping your router?
Can you ping google.com?
Can you ping (google.com)
Are you saying that your card worked until you installed to
the hard drive?
Show the complete output of ifconfig,iwconfig and route.
Show the output of "cat /etc/resolv.conf"
I have a card like yours,btw.Can you get it to work with
a regular knoppix livecd?
If you like Operator,you'll love

I think kanotix works better for a hard drive install.
