Knoppix 5.1.1 Live CD and Internet Connection?

I am trying to figure out if I can connect to the internet via Knoppix 5.1.1 live cd. Everything seems to boot just fine, and during bootup it says that eth0 and DHCP is detected. I tried to configure kwlan, but apparently I am doing it incorrectly or it isn’t possible. I am new to Knoppix and Linux and so I am not very sure. My network seems to show up in kwlan, I clicked the “Activate” button, but I cannot get online. I have no firewall. I am trying to connect with a Broadcom 802.11b/g WLAN – Packet Scheduler Miniport. Any ideas?

Linux problems (ubuntu) need help!!?

im having a problem with linux that makes no since to me. it has to do with the sta broadcom wireless drivers. ok if i run ubuntu from the live cd the propietary drivers are detected and i am propted to install them. however if i install ubuntu compleatly to the hardrive it cant detect these drivers. this makes no since to me. why would it work on the live cd but not work if you install the entire thing. i dont get it. the drivers are thare. i went through the files on the cd and found them. they are thare how can i get the system to detect these? i dont understand why it would work on the live cd but not work on a full installation. i dont understand. these drivers are compatible i have installed them before on previous releases of ubuntu. and the current equivalent of linux mint. its the same driver and it works. i just dont understand why its not working on a full install oppased to just a live cd. can anybody help?
