    Default How do I use a usb wireless adapter with a Livedistro?

    My wireless adapter requires a driver to be installed, but if I am running from a live usb thumb drive installation how can I install the driver if the OS is not installed on my HDD?

    Its live. Its just like having it installed on your hard drive, but its portable. It will save all drivers and changes.

    what happens now when you use it? What wireless card are you using? What happens with the USB wifi card plugged in at boot? what happens if you plug it in after boot?

    Create a persistent install of BT4Final on your USB stick. Then modify.

    The changes that are made will not be saved unless it is persistent usb as the post above mine says. There is a how to in the how to tab on this site. Remember that live boots are not going to save any changes that are made and no it is not like installing it on your HDD it like putting in your live CD.
