@FrosTr
logfile shows that everything is ok. how do you find that it's actually not working?
please run 'iwlist wlan0 scan' command as root and check if you get some APs listed. if you get nothing then please download kernel firmware from porteus repository (you'll have to use wired connection or other OS), place in /porteus/modules and reboot.

Forgetting to put the wifi on is a problem that could happen. In this case putting it on is really a valuable solution. It is good to have that solution on one`s checklist. :)
