Just in case anyone cares...
My problem was that I was using the wrong number for my WEP. Argh. For some
reason, it occurred to me to double-check the number, so after looking at
the bottom of my wireless router (through a tangle of wires and dust bunnies
under the desk), I tried again, and lo and behold, I could access google
through KDE. Yea!
Unfortunately, I ignored the advice about not installing Knoppix on the hard
drive (becuase it worked so well before, I figured it would work again just
fine), and now when I try to boot, I get a kernel panic (something about
syncing, I don't remember off the top of my head). Maybe it's the new
knoppix-installer? I used hdinstall (?) last time with no problems.
The reason I'm using Knoppix in the first place is because of the
auto-detection of hardware on my laptop. I had tried Debian a year or so
ago, and just couldn't get X to run. Someone gave me a Knoppix CD and I was
up and running (on the hard drive!) within a hour.
So, back to the Internet, looking for obscure solutions to ultimately simple
