So I reloaded the USB stick with a fresh install of Knoppix , reinstalled the new Wifi driver, and now Wifi IS working with no cheat code??
I haven't tested if the Wifi still works with a reboot though.

Whats happened now is the old comp I have been testing this on had a moment and wiped the USB stick.
So I reloaded the stick again but now it won't boot? Reformatted a second time and reloaded but still no go?? Boot order is still set for USB 1st.

Tried on another comp with boot order USB 1st and it didn't work on that either??
