How to enable wireless connection at boot up?
I got my wireless connection up! Well yeah, but not on a regular boot! It is in the boot section, but there it keeps on saying: Determining IP address and then fails (Check Cable?).
Now after logging in as root I type in the Terminal:
ifconfig ra0 up
dhclient ra0 -d &
and then the Internet is up. Any chance I can get this to work on a boot?
Sorry again for being so worse with linux yet...!

It is most likely trying to connect before the driver module is loaded. In my Suse laptop, I use NDISWrapper. There is a line in /etc/sysconfig/kernel for loading modules, I have added NDISWrapper.
## Type: string ## ServiceRestart: boot.loadmodules # # This variable contains the list of modules to be loaded # once the main filesystem is active # You will find a few default modules for hardware which # can not be detected automatically. # MODULES_LOADED_ON_BOOT="ndiswrapper"Paul
