I'm trying to get my wireless Linksys WMP54GS to work under Knoppix, to then preceed by installing Gentoo through Knoppix. But no matter what I seem to try, it dosen't seem to want to budge! But before logging out and loosing all my settings, I took the liberty of taking down some notes.

Also, when I check KWiFiManager, it can find my network and I see the greenlight and all, but my internet still won't work. Secondly, I do have access to the router if needed! And yes I was root while attempting all of this.
Edit: So I tried again today, and it finds my network fine. But I still can't access the internet. And the greenlight on the PCI card itself dosen't light up.
Also, it seems now that when I try to go to a website via Konqueror, that it actually tries to find the page as opposed to simply saying it can't find x site from the get-go.
