Hey I'm kind of new to Linux, only ever used it on my ps3 before now, (didn't get it on there, haven't used since) but iv just burned whoppix to a CD and can boot it up, but i have no i dear how to set a wireless network up iv looked in to it but cant get any where. Any help would be greatly appreciated thanks.
Firstly, Whoppix is older and has since merged with other projects into Backtrack. Please use this as it is newer and has better hardware support.
Secondly, to help you out, we need a bit more information about your system, namely what kind of wireless card is in your system. Find out from your machine's vendor, Windows hardware Manager, or under a LiveCD, open a terminal and issue the command "lspci" (you might need to issue the command "sudo lspci")
