problems with internet connection


My computer is a dualboot with windows XP and mandrake 9.2 I have wireless internet connection in the form of a linksys router (broadband) with a verizon dsl modem. This works fine on XP, but i cant get it to work on mandrake. I've tried the howtos, and in my case werent very helpful. I've gone to computer setup and mandrake detected the presence of this connect, but iI cannot get online.

What steps should I take/ is this a problem with my router compatibility? Can I check this somewhere?

sorry about the newbie question, im trying.
