OK how do I get it to search ? :(
It has old wireless and isn't offering to search.
Happy to run v5 as I'm assuming it will run OK but be better in various ways ?
Still ... give it a good try anyway ! :) Thanks :)

Are you saying it doesn't list YOUR network  when you click the networkmanager icon ?

Normal click it .. NOT right-click

Yep I was saying that !
it does now seem to have found it ... (I wired it in - then it finds the wireless ! Go figure!)
Anyway I've entered what I can and it seems to be helping but now it wants :
Enter password for keyring default to unlock
I've tried the passkey but that's not doing it ?
Might there be other internet keys as such or is this a netbook OS issue pls?

When it prompts for a Keyring password .. leave it blank and hit OK

It will moan about unsafe storage, but let it continue anyway.

did it connect ?

OK, I'm gonna have to go soon it's 1:49 in the morning here in the UK.

Have a play around, and any questions I'll answer tomorrow.

If you wanna have a go at installing Peppermint 5, there's a tutorial here:
http://forum.peppermintos.com/index.php/topic,760.0.html
do stages 1,2,3,4,5,6,7, and 10

Do NOT do stages 8 and 9 .. they are specific to the Acer netbook

Any problems, let us know and we'll endeavour to assist )

Any questions before I go ?

Oh .. before you go and try to install Peppermint 5, and now you can post output directly from the netbook

Open a terminal and post the output from:
Code: [Select]
fdisk -l

For clarity that's
FDISK -L
but it MUST be entered in lower case

I'm in the uk too! :)

Problem I have at the moment is that every time I put in peppermint.com it goes to an old site previously put in! Eh? :(

I can get a ppmt.net link that seems to be already installed ... was a bit reluctant to log in from there in case it upset the forum software!

TY v v v v v much for all your help. It's been a tough thing but you've all made it tons easier ! Thank you very much indeed! :D

Peppermintos.net is the OLD forum .. you CANNOT login there.

http://forum.peppermintos.com

is the new one .. you need to enter that into the Firefox address bar and hit enter.

I NEED that output before you attempt to install Peppermint 5

But I'll be on here pretty much all day tomorrow from about lunchtime onwards.
