Hi, i'm having a prblem, i don't have internet connection on tty or console mode. It works fine only when i start graphical mode (startx)
I don't know what to do to, on google there seems to be no info about this.


Thanks
Dave

is this with wireless connection, or is it a wired connection (a network cable going into your computer)?

For the first, check out this page with commands to start internet connection if you are running without X: http://wirelessdefence.org/Contents/Lin ... Connecting

When starting X, NetworkManager, the network icon in the tray, lets your computer connect to the internet. It's normal that this connection hasn't been made if NetworkManager has not been active. You can, however, run some terminal commands to connect but I don't know them.
