Angry Need help with vista/ freespire dual boot internet access.

Hi, I am totally new to freespire. Just installed it onto a dell inspiron running vista Home Pre. Sp1. All went well but i cannot get online with freespire.
I have comcast cable for isp. Not wireless although i do have belkin wireless hooked into modem for laptop.

I am clueless and need someone to walk me thru Baby steps.
When in freespire it does not see any networks , no info whatsoever when i try to set it up.
Where do i start??

First we should know how you are connected to internet. Is it vpn, or pppoe, or something else?

As for belkin devices - they are known by their poor support of linux. Try to google for it and pray you're lucky.
