Tested using Netgear WG511 (pcmcia wireless card), though should work with lots if not most others. :)

Boot up Knoppix, open a Terminal and enter the following (change the below in bold to your values). Make sure your PCMCIA card is plugged in.

ifconfig eth0 up;sleep 1;iwconfig eth0 mode managed;iwlist eth0 scan;sleep 1;iwconfig eth0 key ABC12DEF12G;iwconfig eth0 essid ESSID;pump

The card should then light up and connect. You can check by ifconfig and ping google.com. :)

Good luck!!
