Okay so I've been trying my best to configure both my wireless and LAN internet, but I've got nothing still.

Yes, I put in the correct wireless settings and I let Ceni configure my LAN settings appropriately. Although by a miracle chance, when I left my browser for an hour I finally connected to a website.

Is there any other GUI application that I can install on my aptosid that is better than Ceni? I've lost all hope in using it. By the way, when I try to use wpa_gui it says it can't find some local dependencies:

      Code:

wpa_gui: error while loading shared libraries: libqt-mt.so.3: cannot open shared object file:
no such file or directory


Any ideas?

On a side note: can you tell me how to change my user permissions? I can't write to one of my media folders (my main Windows 7 partition that's under: /media/disk1part3/

You could give wicd a try, but in the end it's nothing more but a frontend for what ceni does too...

ceni does what it does, perfect.
if you would tell us, what wireless chipset you use and what firmware/driver you installed to make it work, we could probably help you.
regarding your drive permissions: please show us the related line in /etc/fstab

confirmed.
Normally lan/eth0 works out of the box by just having the net cable plugging in router and box.

Your wifi problem seems firmware thing or hardware thing. but this:

seems DNS problem. Well, I'm having similar problem with my ISPs.

Using the default DNS server the ISP provides, I can't reach my e-mail server abroad,
nor even aptosid.com sometimes. Changing to use OpenDNS (nameserver 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.222.220)
the connection is immediate.

I've browsed around and found that my chipset is perfect compatible:
ath9k Atheros AR982X Wireless
as for my LAN:
tg3 Boradcom NetLink BCM5784M Gigabit.

I haven't installed any firmware to get these.

as for drive permissions:

      Code:

UUID=DAA41C49A41C2B11                         /media/disk1part1    ntfs         auto,users,ro,dmask=0022,fmask=0133,nls=utf8  0    0   
UUID=16320A87320A6BD5                         /media/disk1part2    ntfs         auto,users,ro,dmask=0022,fmask=0133,nls=utf8  0    0   
UUID=DEB21189B2116775                         /media/disk1part3    ntfs         auto,users,ro,dmask=0022,fmask=0133,nls=utf8  0    0   
UUID=8370e9d5-c77a-4198-a6f3-b24e502dbaaf     /                    ext4         defaults,noatime,errors=remount-ro,barrier=0  0    1   


as for DNS, I connect wirelessly and it works. For LAN I have no idea why it doesn't work.

The last sidux/aptosid were not working automatically for me. Ceni configuration could not resolve automatically dns nameservers.

There are two possibilities:

A) Set the nameservers in /etc/network/interfaces (or in ceni configuration), example with google dns:

      Quote:

iface eth0 inet static
address 192.168.0.2
broadcast 192.168.0.255
dns-nameservers 8.8.8.8 8.8.4.4
gateway 192.168.0.1
netmask 255.255.255.0
network 192.168.0.1


B) Set the dns nameservers in the router (automatic or manual). In this example the router is at 192.168.0.1:

      Quote:

iface eth0 inet static
address 192.168.0.2
broadcast 192.168.0.255
dns-nameservers 192.168.0.1
gateway 192.168.0.1
netmask 255.255.255.0
network 192.168.0.1

Thank you blackhole; I am able to access websites now by using the router configuration. Although loading webpages is fairly slow, it is time now to get myself a proper GUI interface for networks, as when I go to/from university I need to input a username and password into the wireless.

We still have some unsolved stuff however. In the meantime, I'm just apt-get'ing everything I can.

so i can now write on my ntfs drive, so i'm perfectly setup now on Aptosid.

Thank you so much blackhole for figuring out that very small issue with Ceni.

should wired not work yet, you need firmware for the nic.
      Code:
apt-get install firmware-linux-nonfree
contains that. as the name suggests, it needs non-free enabled in the sources.
