Well.....That didn't work.

Seems the Linksys device is discontinued at Staples. Stopped by the 
local Rad-Shack and got a TrendNet TU2-ET100.

Tried a fresh install of Acid and same story.

If I do the interactive startup and don't start firstboot and local I 
can go in at the command prompt and configure the adapter using setup, 
the system does see it. If I do a DHCP or static IP address, I get the 
same result.

I have verified that the adapter works and my Ethernet cable is good.

I'm just stuck.


Thanks!
