since wireless is often prblematical, you probably neet the correct driers for it to be installed. no distro has all of them.


for the drivers linksys has available for open source systems.

You can use ndiswrapper to install the windows linksys drivers. I use these on a SuSE based computer and it works well. However, as knoppix is a live CD you would need to set it up to use ndiswrapper every time you boot it which would be a complete pain in the proverbial.

do a google search on "linksys ndiswrapper knoppix" for some useful links.

As suggested above, ndiswrapper may do the trick for you by allowing linux to use the windows binaries. Alternatively, try to identify the chipset on the card and look for open source projects based on your particular chipset. Here's a good starting point Good luck!
