If you are using WEP, try configuring the card using net-setup in a console , run as root.

yes there is another way. net-setup is a good app, but considering that you stated your newb-ness I would beg to differ from freeallbadgers suggestion. I think NetworkMAnager is better suited for you (provided you're one of the luck 50 people it works for :)



you should already have the icon in the KDE system tray. If your wireless card is working that is..right click the icon for a list of options. It should be a breeze to set it up that way. I've never used kwifimanager so I cant help you.


If networkmanagetr doesnt work you will have to come back and tell us your make/model of wireless card and a few other things as it may not be finctioning correctly (buggy driver, particularly with a broadcom chipset)


EDIT: I see you already specified your cards chipset. I didnt read your post well enough at first ..im too lazy to delete the sentence above..

Thank you for keeping us updated and letting us know it works!! Im glad for you, and welcome to the forums.

Also just one favor I would have you do me in return for helping you out, if you could remember...Just in the future, when a question/post of your has been solved if you could just edit your post and add [SOLVED] in front of the topic. That way it benefits the future would-be sabayon users as well :)

Good Luck
