    Default Last step to connecting to the Internet in BT4

    NOTE: I have been searching the forums all day and have yet to find the final step to hooking up to the Internet in BT4. I have been able to discover my area's networks, including my own, but do not know how to proceed with a successful connection. I have pasted the commands and the results in the body to further isolate my issue.

    command airmon-ng reveals my Interface = wlan0 Chipset = atheros Driver = ath5k - [phy0]

    command iwconfig returns:

    lo no wireless extensions

    eth0 no wireless extensions

    wmaster0 no wireless extensions

    wlan0 IEEE 802.11bg ESSID: " "
    Mode:Managed Frequency :2.412 GHZ Access Point: Not-Associated
    Tx-Power=0 dbm
    Retry min limit : 7 RTS thr : off Fragment thr=2352 B
    Encryption key : off
    Power Management : off
    Link Quality : 0 Signal level : 0 Noise level : 0
    Rx invalid nwid : 0 Rx invalid crypt : 0 Rx invalid frag : 0
    Tx excessive retries : 0 Invalid misc : 0 Missed beacon : 0

    Now, to view the available networks in my area I used command "airodump-ng wlan0" and it showed an active list of available networks in my area including my own, which is great because It appeared that nobody on the BT4 forums were able to get this far.

    My question: what do I do next to connect to the internet?

    Start networking. Use the search feature
    This is the sixth time we have created a thread about it... and we have become exceedingly efficient at it.

    Lol try this.

    /etc/init.d/networking start

    /etc/init.d/wicd start

    Then go to K menu/internet/wicd

    Thanks, everything worked up to me actually connecting to my network. It asked me for IP/Netmask/Gateway which I filled in, but it asks me for DNS1, DNS2 and DNS3.

    How do I configure this?

    Thanks again

    In an average network setup, all you need to do is set it to DHCP mode and it will obtain all the relevant information without you having to fill in each and every single field mentioned above.
