Yo! Welcome!
Looks like you are in a hurry?
Did you have time to find the projects website?
I did:
http://www.damnsmalllinux.org/
Once you are there you will find the download links.
Some of them may not work - the ones I tried did...
found you another one:
http://iso.linuxquestions.org/damn-s...all-linux-4.3/
You are welcome! Also to look around a little before you ask.

And you may want to remove your email address from your post - harvesters love to see those out in the clear.

After you download the ISO image, you still need to burn it to a CD and then boot from that CD..

It may sound superfluous but I feel like it:

You should try reading a little of the documentation - it would clarify a lot. You can use your browser to download the image.

To deliberately add a little confusion: of course you have linux after you downloaded ... there are however a few more steps before you can actually use it.
(see Nylex's post)
The step-by-step is given in the documentation.

Could you please try to spell properly? And explain what you did and how that did not give the result you expected?

What is netgearwn111? A google search turns up nothing. Can you elaborate of this type of hardware, exact make and model?

You can boot up DSL now?
Almost any wired connection (LAN) would be working out of the box.
Maybe not so the wireless - especially if your hardware is not supported in linux.

Try if you can make it work by checking out the options given to you via:
Setup --> Net Setup --> wlcardconfig
or
Setup --> Net Setup --> ndiswrapper

For the latter you have to provide the driver file that you use in Windows to make your card work (the .inf) - but try the former first to see if the card is natively supported.

Alternatively - and/or to enable us to help you - give specific information on what hardware you have.
For this, post the output of the command:
Code:
lspci

Oh wow, traded one very vague question with another providing zero information to go with? Perhaps by now you should be reading the documentation on how to ask good questions so we can actually start helping you.

So you gonna start providing details or are you going to make us ponder and wonder what you're actually trying to get working? I couldn't imagine how many makes and models of "built-in G antenna" there are with a google search. :sigh:
