This was formerly the "How To - Setting up wireless with ceni" thread. Due to recent changes in how "SID" behaves, this has become a general network howto for VSIDO...
For those of you using wired connections, /etc/network/interfaces and /etc/resolv.conf in VSIDO will handle your Internet connection OOTB as long as your device is eth0
(which it probably no longer is for new users using the latest ISO's of VSIDO). Therefore:
FOR CENI -
If your just trying out VSIDO using a 'Live Session', here is a pretty simple way to get VSIDO to see your network. Open a terminal, and type in;
This gives you the name of your network devices. For example, what used to be 'eth0' may now be something like 'enp0s3'. While the terminal is still open, type in;
This gets you to a 'root' prompt. Type in;
Your network device should be listed. For wireless connections, the below directions for 'ceni' should still get you through. For 'wired'
connections your network device should already be highlighted, and if not, press the "Tab" key to get to it and press "Enter". You should see the next screen which will be the "Network settings for enp0sXX". Most home networks are 'dhcp' so tab to the box and select 'dhcp' using your "Space" bar. "Tab" to the next box (Class) and select "Auto". "Tab" to the 'Accept' button and hit "Enter". If all went well, you should see some text fly by quickly then return you to the "Do you want to exit" box. "Tab" to the 'Yes' selection, press "Enter", and your done.
FOR WICD -
(Use the above method to discover your network device names, 'ifconfig -a')
For users using 'wicd' which comes by default with VSIDO, you should see an icon representing 'wicd' at the top right of your screen. Click this icon. A new window will open. This is the 'wicd' gui. At the top right of the 'wicd' window you'll see an arrow pointing down. Click on the arrow and select "Preferences". Another window will open. You'll immediately see the "Network Interfaces" at the top of the window. Replace the selections with the results you received using the 'ifconfig -a' command in your terminal. (from the directions at the top of this 'how to') (If your using a wireless connection, you can click on the "Adanced Settings" tab and towards the bottom you'll find a place to enter you access point password.) Once you've done this press or click on "OK". You'll be returned to the original window for the 'wicd' gui. Once again, click on the down arrow at the top right and click on "Refresh". Your 'network device should now be selected. Click on "Connect" beneath the correct device for your computer and presto, you should be good to go! Close the 'wicd' gui and your done.
These settings should remain after a reboot if your doing this after installing VSIDO. If your doing all this from a 'Live Session', you'll need to repeat these steps after every reboot...Ceni for WiFi
Start ceni in terminal with 'ceni'
Enter the su password for your system.
You should see the following screen. Be sure to select the correct device and press 'Enter';
Next (assuming your setting up your wireless) select scan;
Next, select the correct wifi network in the list;
Next, be sure the correct selections are made, and enter your "Preshared Key" (your wireless access point password);
Next, tab to the "Accept" button and hit enter;
At this point your almost done! You should see the following screen where you need to tab to the "Class" box, highlight the 'auto' selection, press the space-bar to select it, then tab to the "Accept" button and hit enter;
Last step, is to exit the ceni config tool;
Thats it! Enjoy your wireless network!
