wifi on openSUSE

Link to this post 31 Jan 10


I have problems with my wifi connection on openSUSE 11.2 64bit (with GNOME).

I configured all with Ndiswrapper, with no problems. But the problem starts with Yast and Network Manager.

Can you help me?

I have a Conceptronic c150ru.

Well, I tried to configure internet with the terminal, but I can't do it.

First, I wrote iwconfig wlan0 essid (the name of my connection). OK

Secondly, I wrote iwconfig wlan0 key (my WEP key). It didn't work.

I need help.

I was hoping that an opensuse user would pop up and help, but sine no one has I will take a shot.

What kind of problems are you having with YAST and the Network Manager?
Do you see your loaded driver when you issue the command "ndiswrapper -l"?
Do you see that the ndiswrapper module is loaded when you run "lsmod|grep ndis"?
Do you see any available wireless networks when you open the Network Manager?
What kind of wireless chipset is displayed when you look at hte output of lspci?

(I don't know why I didn't receive a notification :blink: )

Well, YAST is very difficult to use for me, and when I do the steps of the tutorial ( ), my YAST seems to work in a different way. Network Manager too.

My driver is well loaded.

My ndiswrapper module is also well loaded.

I don't see any wireless networks.

I don't remember my wireless chipset, but I think it's ralink.

I think you should share the output of "ndiswrapper -l", this will show us what windows drivers are loaded via ndiswrapper.

I have seen in the past some occurrences of ralink and realtek wifi drivers that only work in 32-bit windows and 32-bit Linux distros. If you give us the output of the command I listed we can further research the specific card type and driver to see what issues have been reported.

Ok, I'll try that later and write here the driver(s).
