    Knoppix V4 and Wireless card configuration

    I tried to use the utility for wireless card (As far as I remember the name it was WIKI WALN Manager), but I could not configure the WLAN,,,,

    1- Is this utility that comes with Knoppix V4 compatible with all wireless card ?
    2- Am I doing the right thing ?
    3- Do I need to enable something within wireless card ?

    The WLAN that the laptop has got is: Dell Wireless WLAN 1450 Dual Band WLAN Mini-PCI Card

    So would it be safe to say that you have not even read the wireless networking section of the wiki?

    Verifying of md5 checksum and burning a CD at slow speed are important.

    You're going to have to use ndiswrapper to get your wireless to work, and knoppix is probably not the best linux distro for that. I suggest you read up on ndiswrapper and maybe try ubuntu or kanotix. Here's a couple of links:
