Quick question: How do I input the WEP of the network I'm trying to connect to?
On Knoppix 3.9 (I know, very outdated)
Connected to a wired network and trying to get internet access. I did an ifconfig and set the IP, Subnet, etc.
I noticed that what I was doing was completely unrelated to actually connecting to the network. I know the SSID and WEP of the network, as it's my home net. ifconfig only addresses the interface's config (ip, sub, dns, mac, etc.). So how would I go about actually establishing the connection to the network? I failed to find a gui-driven network config utility built into Knoppix.
Huh. just had a thought...do the SSID and WEP even matter when wired?

No, they do not.
Due to the age of Knoppix 3.9 it will probably lack the support for the wlan hardware anyhow.
Also, I dont believe there was a gui for wireleless back then.
And in fact, I would prefer a wired connection over a WEP wlan connection.
You know, that WEP is broken? Shut it downYou must always face the curtain with a bow.

i agree, knoppix 3.9 is nearly 5 years old, it do you even know whether or not your wireless card is detected?
you should get latest knoppix, it should just work out of box for many chipsets
