3.3.1. Setting up an internet connection

Network connections are managed by Wicd in Salix. It is an open source wired and wireless network manager for Linux which aims to provide a simple interface to connect to networks with a wide variety of settings.

It will connect to wired (Ethernet only, no PPPoE/DSL support yet) and wireless networks.

Note that wicd and wireless must be activated in the system services in order to make wireless networks visible on Wicd.

3G modems

To configure 3G connections, use sakis3g (installed automatically when using the "Full" installation method).
