I wanted to try phoenix on my laptop before installing it, as previously been quite a fan of xfce although have been using KDE (mainly) for quite some time. Unfortunately the network is down and won't configure. I have ADSL broadband, with a modem router and then eight point switch which I run 2 or 3 computers off. The laptop currently has Debian on it, and the network was up on that. Until recently when I had a motherboard failure the laptop ran Pclos 2009, and then 2010 before the big KDE update - network was fine.
I popped KDE 2010.11 in, and same issue. I really want to get back to Pclos on the laptop so hope the network issue can be resolved.
It has an nVidia ethernet card which is recognised.
