No Internet connection on MSI notebook using Pendrivelinux


Hey all, this is my first post on this site! I'm quite new to the whole Linux OS.

But ive got a 1g USB drive with Pendrivelinux on it but i am unable to connect to the internet (wired and wireless).

However i tried the same USB pendrive on my desktop and the internet worked fine right off the bat.

Notebook info

MSI Notebook Dual core AMD Athlon 2.00 Ghz processors
Internal OS - Windows Vista Home Premium Service pack 1

Network Adapters


NVIDIA Nforce 10/100 Mbps Networking controller
802.11n Wireless Lan Card


Dunno if this will help, but heres the location where i downloaded my version of Pendrivelinux
http://www.pendrivelinux.com/all-in-...ivelinux-2008/

thanks!

No connection

Can you please post the type of WLAN card (Wireless LAN Card) you have?
If you don't know it you may find it in the Device Manager in Windows Vista, if it is still on your laptop.
