I just installed VL5.9 Light on an older thinkpad (p3-450, 128mb ram). It works fine, but I can't get my pc card wireless adapter to work. It's a Linksys WPG54Gv3. When it's inserted, and I run the wireless setup, it's detected, but once I enter my SSID and password it invariably says "could not obtain an address for eth0". I tried disabling the password on the wireless network, but it still gives the same error. With windows installed on the same laptop, this wireless card was able to work on this network.
What can I do to further diagnose my problem?
