    Unhappy knoppix networking using a wifi connection


    hi all. i am a newbie in the linux world. i am using knoppix live 6.2 from a cd. i am not able to connect to the internet. i have a wifi connection. knoppix gets connected to the wifi well and good. i saw the status and found that it is receiving ip address etc. properly. i have the dhcp enabled. but i am not able to connect to the internet through this connection. how do i do this?

    Is the DHCP server also your wireless router by chance? Is it configured to dish out a gateway and DNS info (it should be)?

    To see what your knoppix box is set to, show the output of these commands:

    # current ip config
    Code:
    ip a
    # available wireless devices
    Code:
    iwconfig
    # routing table
    Code:
    route -n
    the routing table should have a default gateway listed for your wireless device (probably the ip address of your wireless router)

    # DNS settings
    Code:
    cat /etc/resolv.conf
    this should have at least one nameserver listed
