    Why not provide some info on how you intend connecting to the net, hardware specs etc?

    Is it a USB or ethernet modem?

    If it's ethernet, after it boots it should already have an IP address (Assuming router is set for DHCP). If you had previously set your router for static you will need to reflect those settings in your Knoppix configuration. I think most connections will just prompt through the browser for your password, or need to have it set in the router itself - I know on my own you access the router through 192.168.1.1 where you can configure it.

    These are kinda all assuming that it's ethernet, let us know....

    Speaking from experience, connecting via adsl modem thru usb is a pain in the tits. It does work though, you've just got to be prepared to pull all your hair out first. Here's a good site if you've got a Thompson/Speedtouch adsl modem:

    ethernet is normally you're main man. You just plug it in, and the DHCP router will sort you out. I haven't messed around with Knoppix in a little while, I'll try to get a look tomorrow. Do you have an nVidia chippset? If so you will need to use the boot option for the 2.6 kernel so the drivers are loaded.
