    Kwifi Shows Connection but...

    Ive got a really strange problem. Well, maybe its not strange, i dont know, im still extremely new to linux. Im trying to setup my wifi card, its a d-link Airplus G, and after i use netcardsetup,and enter my WEP stuff, KWifi shows i have a connection to my defult with an excellent connection. My problem is when i use any internet application (konquror, firefox,etc) it cant find any websites. Im using the 4.0.1 live DVD by the way, and there are no proxies i use. Please help me if you can, and walk me through with baby steps, as i just started using knoppix and linux this past week.

    Go to the root shell and type "ifconfig" and "iwconfig" and paste result here. And shut down wep encryption and then try again. Maybe is something wrong with wep. Just for troubleshoting.

    After you have input the wlan-stuf you need to configure the card as a normal network-card. There you can choose to use dhcp (easiest) or input the needed adresses. Your card needs to know where to find the nameserver.
