Once knoppix loads I open firefox and it can't connect to anything. ifconfig displays my loopback ip and iwconfig says "no wireless extensions." for all 3.

I'm totally new, but once I get the wireless working with knoppix i'll be building my own linux from scratch. Any help would be fantastic.

I do not know how you would do it using Knoppix but when I tried the Ubuntu live cd I was able to configure a Dlink wireless card using Gnome network manager. May I ask what type of wireless card you have?
