Why can't I get on the net?

Postby the lemming on Sat May 12, 2007 6:55 am

Hello

I'm experimenting with Linux mint Live CD on my laptop and PC before I install them.

At the moment my laptop will happily connect to my wireless router from the Live CD.

For some reason I can't do this with my PC. I managed it this morning but the entire system froze and I could not hit any key strokes or mouse clicks. I could not even move the mouse pointer.

Earlier on I could enter the networking to enter my WEP key and mow I can't even do that.

Anybody know why or how I can get onto the net with my PC?

It may help to mention that I also had problems trying to install ubuntu. I had a very frustraiting 48 hours and found that that distro was exceptionally unstable on my PC.

Cheers

My Router is a D-link DI-524

And my network card is a belkin wireless network card F5D7000uk

My PC details are

AMD 64 3400+ processor 2205MHz
2gb RAM
Nvidia GeForce FX 5700 Graphics card
1 DVD Re-write drive
1 DVD Read only drive
2 Hard Drives 112GB
2 External Hard Drives (USB)
Belkin 802.11g wireless card model F5D 7000uk
Medion TV-Tuner 7134 MK 2/3

I hope somebody can help me solve this little problem.

Cheers

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

what no reply yet....

first are you using Bianca or Cassandra beta?

I would have thought your pc would have been more stable than the laptop (with the exception of the wireless card).

is the pc stable without the wireless network?

:D
