I've followed the instructions to get various antivirus on my e2b drive listed here:




The problem is I am haviong trouble getting internet. I've been succesful at getting internet on bitdefender. It was downloading updates and suddenly stopped and now it says error -1009. I could not find anything on google.

Next I'm having trouble getting internet period on the Avira and kaspersky disc.

So this is what I have been doing. By default it starts up with a wired connection. I delete this and create a new connection under the wireless tab. When I do this, I select the security type and enter the password to it. I label the connection name, the name of the wifi network. I also put the name of it in the SSID box. I've leave the BSSID blank. I click save.

On bitdefender, it right clicked on the network computers on the bottom page and click disconect, then I reconnect, and thats when I noticed it working on bitdefender. When it comes to the other Antiviruses, following the same procedure does not work.


So in the end I'm looking for a good way to get internet on all of these so I can download the latest updates.

Once you boot to an OS, any internet issues will be due to the OS, it's drivers and your internet connection.

Different OS's will have different drivers.

If all these different OS's all give problems, then that may indicate that the problem is with your router or the system you are using, because 1000's of other people use these live CDs without any problem.

So try using a different system to boot with (or boot the USB using a VM such as Virtual Box + VMUB) or maybe Google to see if your particular hardware has known issues.
