Which version are you using, regular or 64 bit?

Does a wired ethernet connection work?

What kind of wifi card do you have?

Did you use Simple Network Setup or Dougal's Network Wizard?

You're probably going to have to compile the module. Download these and right click on the sfs files and choose "sfsload" to enable them. Then download the driver source from realtek's website, cd into the folder (once you have extracted it) and compile it.

You'll also have to "harvest" the module so that you can re-use it if you ever delete your savefile.

Hope that helps!
