    Wireless Networks

    You never posted the details of your wireless card in the other thread - finding out what driver you need will have to start with this...

    I'm trying to access my home network using wlcardconfig in the root shell but when i enter this command the following message appears:

    Xlib: Connection to :"0.0" refused by server
    Xlib: No Protocol specified

    Xdialog: Error initializing the GUI
    Do you run under X11 with GTK+ V1.20.0+ installed?

    Have you any idea what this means, I could access the internet and the network no problem when I ran it off the cd, i didn't have to download or install any drivers or anything, just connected automatically
