Need help connecting to router
I think this is where I went wrong, but I don't know how to sort this out:
linux:~ # ifstatus wlan-bus-usb ERROR: Interface is not available
How do I find the results? I found the file, but I have no idea what to do with it!
No there's no encryption on the router, it's open.

Ok this is what comes out:

I still haven't been answered on this, can someone please have a look?
(I'm guessing by this that nothing is showing up, is that right?)
Need to configure
Your eth interfaces don't have IPv4 addresses assigned. I would expect one of them to have as the second line something like this:Code:
inet addr:192.168.1.100 Bcast:192.168.1.255 Mask:255.255.255.0
Start -> System -> Configuration -> Configure Your Computer -> (password) -> Network & Internet
If not, you can just edit the little text configuration files in /etc/sysconfig/, but you may be more comfortable with the menu method.
You didn't say anthing about your network connection (router?, cable modem?, etc.) but it's likely you have a DHCP server, so just pick the DHCP option when you see it. If that doesn't work, you'll need more information.
