Ok, I have a Comcast internet connection, and have recently decided to chuck windows in favor of a linux distro. So far I have installed about 4 different ones(slackware, debian, the debian based ubuntu and kubuntu, and fedora core.)
However, the only real complaint I have that is recursivly occuring in each distro I install, is that my wireless router will not give me a working internet connection in KDE or GNOME. This is a huge problem for me, as I need it for my work and studies.
Anyway, I've entered in both the ip adresses for the router and for the actual connection, using ifconfig, and I wrote down the netmask and the gateway so I could enter those in too. I've quadruple-checked all of the numbers and found that they are correct, and it still won't connect.
I currently still have Fedora core, Kubuntu, and Windows XP on my machine. I would love to get rid of the Windows, but it is all I have that will connect to the net. Any help will be greatly appreciated ^_^.
