Evidently there is a bug with 2wire and linux. as I have a friend who uses ATT which gave him a 2wire router/modem.
he wanted to play with *nix so I installed VL-KDE classic for him. but there is a problem.
wired - it connects to router, and can access the net.
wireless - it connects to the router, but can not access the net.
Win/Mac there is no problem both will connect to the router and net.
just to make sure its not just his machine or a VL problem. i got my lappy and tryed it with ubuntu,debian and mandriva and same thing. ethernet connects to router and the net. but wireless can connect to the router but will not pass on to the net.
any ideas of a fix?
