Issues Related to Hardware (Sound, Video, Printers, Scanners, Webcams, Touchpads, Keyboards, Sensors, Drives, GRUB, etc.)
Hi. I am trying to configure my wifi on a Toshiba Satellite A215 using Linux 2.6.22-sabayon x86_64. I am able to see wireless networks and the connection looks strong, but I never receive an IP address. It looks like it's trying to use the same device for both wifi and wired connections. I am unsure of exactly what model wifi card I have as I am unsure exactly where to find that information within kde. Any helpful scripts/commands to get this information would be greatly appreciated.

using net-setup as root in terminal:
Follow the instructions and add wep / wpa under the encryption part and possibly use HEX for text numbers / text pass key.
Type ifconfig and it should work.
If you have Sabayonlinux then next to time to right is a white square box with red x in it = knetworkmanager and right click this = available networks or other and click + add pass keys is encryption say wpa2 + automatic and it connects.
Bug = if the noise is same or more than the signal from the wifi router / sendign device = no connection / failed connection.
28% = wep / wpa / wpa2 , 80% = dhcp , 100% = connected so this will give you an idea where the bug lies. This all can have issues if the signal is too weak / "noise versus sginal" or too far away = same problems.
If 50% to 75% in windows then it would be half of that in linux in general via ndiswrapper or firmware / normal stuff not sure why even if it shows 91% the current measuring part of knetowrkmanager / ??? does not compensate for bad signal and shows a fake reading not real reading.
kwifi should give you a fearly good reading just play around with it.
