wifi radar get stuck


I'm trying to use wifi radar to connect to the wireless, I installed and it runs fine (in Knoppix), the light on the connector lights up normally and it identifies the connection points, but when I click connect a "working" windows appears with the indication Adquiring IP address (DHCP) but the status bar just goes on and on and it does not connect. How can I fix it?

Welcome to LQ!

A quick heads up is that with issues like this - it's helpful to include your distro, distro version, and hardware information. What are those for this case?

ok, itīs an old presario c500, the distro is knoppix v7.0 live cd, the software is wifi radar. everything seems to work well, the indicator of the wireless light up and is active, wifi radar recognizes the connection point correctly, only the indicator of the signal itīs good at first and then is blank, also it is supposed to appear a window asking for the password, but it doesnt get that far because when I click on a connection point which I know works well with another laptop in windows the status bar keeps going on and on forever, so something must be wrong at that stage of the process

Run wifi radar from terminal

Code:
gksu wifi-radar
and see if any error messages show up.

Try

Code:
sudo wifi-radar
then. Wait a second? Does not knoppix run as root?

If so.

Code:
wifi-radar
should suffice.

it's kind of strange, if I try wifi-radar on knoppix 7.0 it recognizes the wireless card, which lights up and it recognizes the connection points, just the signal status is blank and it doesn't connect. If I try wifi-radar on knoppix dvd 7.7 which is supposed to be newer, it doesn't recognizes the card and the indicator of the wireless doesn't even light up. I cant figure out what's wrong

just curious since I don't use Knoppix. Does it not startup with network manager running?

Have tried connecting through it instead of wifi-radar?
