When I type it in when connected to the net I get this but when the computer boots the kernel it tryes using the DHCPDISCOVER and other commands and fails to find a connection to the network router , also

utilities for wireless prism2 cards
linux-wlan-ng is a set of drivers and utilities that is intended to provide
the full range of IEEE 802.11 MAC management capabilities for use in
user-mode utilities and scripts. The package currently supports the Intersil
802.11b Prism2, Prism2.5, and Prism3 reference designs for PCMCIA, PCI, and
USB. Additionally, the package includes support for the PLX9052 based PCI to
PCMCIA adapter with a few different PCMCIA cards.

This package is useless without the appropriate linux-wlan-ng-modules-x.yy.zz
package for the kernel you are running. You may have to build that by hand;
see the README.Debian for instructions.

this was loaded on the KANOTIX & Knoppix linux versions but it does not support my card , and why does dniswrapper and wavelan configure don't put any net settings loading up in the kernel on bootup , The Windows driver for my card loads just fine from dniswrapper but it does not seem to keep the network configure info stuff in the kernel bootup process
