    Turn on networking. Just like it says when you log on.
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    If maybe you could form a coherent sentence someone might be willing/able to help you.
    A third party security audit is the IT equivalent of a colonoscopy. It's long, intrusive, very uncomfortable, and when it's done, you'll have seen things you really didn't want to see, and you'll never forget that you've had one.

    Short answer: For now, go back to Windows.

    Longer answer: Get some good books on Linux, and start with an easier distro. BT is designed for advanced Linux users, and without any Linux knowledge, you're dog-paddling in the deep end of the pool.

    And like streaker said, a little attempt at writing correctly would go a long way.

    Wow, bad luck, those "bla bla bla bla sleeping" errors really suck!

    They're impossible to fix! Just try searching Google for them - I bet you wont find any relevant information!

    If you really want peoples help with that problem you need to state your questions clearly, stick to one question/thought at a time where possible, and provide more details about the error messages you see (yes, more detail than bla bla bla sleeping - the exact text is always good).

    After getting this error message you may also want to try searching for it in Google before posting back - you may find the solution (or at least learn something in the process).
    Capitalisation is important. It's the difference between "Helping your brother Jack off a horse" and "Helping your brother jack off a horse".

    When you type "iconfig eth0", does it say something like "bash: iconfig: command not found"?

    An OS that isn't beyond your IT skill.

    Try Windows.
    I'm a compulsive post editor, you might wanna wait until my post has been online for 5-10 mins before quoting it as it will likely change.

    I know I seem harsh in some of my replies. SORRY! But if you're doing something illegal or posting something that seems to be obvious BS I'm going to call you on it.

    Huh?

    You only have wifi, but you're setting up your eth0?

    No worries, I think I can help. See if this works:

    Code:
    man ifconfig
    man iwconfig
    man resolv.conf
    man route
    man wpa_supplicant
    man wpa_supplicant.conf
