Cannot Connect to Internet


Hi all!

I burned the Knoppix ISO to a DVD in roder to boot my comptuer which has BSOD problems...

I've been told a couple of solutions that I couldn't access due to safe mode just going into a BSOD.

So I found Knoppix and it's great. but it won't connect me to the internet. I use a router and it detects the connection i use. I click on it and type in my WEP key which I know is correct and it tries connecting. After a few seconds the screen pops in again asking me for my WEP key again.

Anyone know how I can connect to the internet? Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Click on network manager icon alist of available networks will pop-up, find your network,enter wep-key it'll show connection status.
If it shows "connected" but no flow, reboot.
