    New guy needs help with wireless networking

    Hi,
    My last post probably wasn't too descriptive.
    I have a Westell 802.11g wireless adapter and an Actiontec Ml424WR router that I'm trying to get to work with Knoppix.
    I'm running the lastest version of the Live CD.
    My computer is fairly new, 256mb's of ram, Duron processor, Win XP,ect.
    To make matters worse I' totally new to Linux of any kind.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    I was finally able to get my wifi working with the following commands

    iwconfig wlan0 essid XXXXX
    iwconfig wlan0 key XXXXXX
    iwconfig wlan0 mode Managed
    iwconfig wlan0 channel 6
    ifconfig wilan0 up
    iwconfig wlan0 ap any
    pump -i wlan0

    This has to be run as root so su before. Note ifconfig instead of iwconfig on 5th command. Replace XXXX's with your values. Iwlist is a good utility to help see where you are.
