I got this working.
How I did it:
Hook the slamdunk to a windows 7 laptop via usb
Make sure the USB ethernet driver installs from windows update
On the PC, share your internet connection to the USB ethernet adapter that showed up when you plugged the SLAM Dunk in through ICS.
add the following route on the SD: where you see brackets add the actual IP
$ sudo route add default gw [ip of laptop on the parrot Ethernet adapter]
then you need to edit your /etc/resolv.conf to this in vi:
To do this you type:
sudo vi /etc/resolv.conf
then you might need to type
then you will need to cursor to where you want to edit and type
then type the line you want to add, type (enter) and then press (ctrl c)
then the screen should update
to save and quit type:
More vi info here: http://www.lagmonster.org/docs/vi.html
then you should have network access and you can run:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get install wireless-tools
Also I would highly recommend you install the nano text editor...
sudo apt-get install nano
This is not a perm fix. Every time you reboot the SLAM Dunk you will need to re-edit the resolv.conf file. Having it like this is somewhat nice because you aren't making any changes to the setup of the SLAM Dunk. There is probably a better way but I don't know it.
I am not good at explaining things so could someone clean this up and add it to the wiki? It would help a lot of people.
