    nope, seems broken. Alpha doesn have gimp, so no screen shots can be done, but my preferences are marked as ´eth0´ & ´wlan0´, yet while also say ¨Not Connected¨ [to wired one].

    Getting Wired Connection Working In DreamLinux 4.0 Alpha.....

    OK. Here are the steps I took to get the wired connection working in dreamlinux 4.0 alpha.

    DCP > Set Up Network > Manailly Set Up Network [Disable WiCD] > Apply > ¨Address¨ field type: [your will be different. Get this from WiCD screen at very bottom where it says ¨Connected to .... at"] > OK> Exit> Test.

    Negative part of this step:

    WiCD is Disabled, There for NO Wireless. No Connection icon on the Panel.

    Your network, Steve, is showing up in wicd, but not connecting? What sort of encryption are you using? Wicd doesn't automatically select the right encryption method, so my first thought is maybe you have it set wrong.
    AT&T is a pppoe or ppoa set up.

    Thumbs up {SOLVED} Set Up WiCD Manually In DreamLinux 4.0 Alpha...

    OK. Here are the steps I took to fix WiCD in 4.0 Alpha. I suppose I could have do this in 3.5 if I thought of it back then.

    This for when WiCD doesn't Äutodetect" your eth0 / wlan0 settings.

    1} DCP > Set up Network > Enable WiCD > Apply > Exit

    2} WiCD > "steve" [your network name will be different] > L. click the arrow > Advanced Settings > Use Static IP's ? ^ [Yes] > IP Field: [yours will be different] > Gateway Field: Autofills when clicked > Open Modem Set Up Page [you'll need another computer, probably, and it will need to be attached to your everyday usage modem too] > [for Motorola Modems] > Connection Information > See Notes, Type ONLY what is in RED LETTERS:
    Internet Gateway Address
    DNS Servers <!-- this is "DNS 1" in "Advance Screen" <!-- This is "DNS 2" In "Advanced Screen"

    Note: Never Ever fill in "DNS 3"unless you absolutely need it for some oddball reason

    > Use This Setting For All Networks Sharing This SSID ? ^ [yes] > Use Encryption ? NO [Leave check box empty] > OK > Auto Connect to this Network ? ^ [Yes] > L. Click Arrow > Test browser > If Working: Press "Quit"on Upper R.H. Corner of WiCD Screen.

    Thank you to Reed9, Dude, yer an "11"!!
