Good Morning from Chicago!
I have been trying to install a wireless network for a while under suse
9 pro, that I bought a few weeks ago. I'm having trouble getting my
wireless card working. I had it working on madrake using madwifi
In any case after trying madwifi (downloaded and the one that comes in
the system), I never got and IP trough dhcp, nor I would be able to
connect setting the parameters manually. So, I've decided to try
linuxant driverloader with the same success rate, everything works card
gets recognize, I can " iwlist wlan0 scan " and check my environment,
iwconfig shows my card properly connected, and ifconfig shows my card,
but without IP address:
wlan0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:0C:41:AD:D3:21
UP BROADCAST NOTRAILERS MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:0 errors:7 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
RX bytes:0 (0.0 b) TX bytes:0 (0.0 b)
this is my ifcfg_wlan0:
I also tried setting the mode as Managed, same result.
I read somewhere that ISC dhclient worked better that dhcpcd, so I did
try changing them, if exactly the same result.
I also went out and bought a different card with a different chipset
supported by linuxant driveloader, and to my dismay I got to the same
I think that this is something related to suse...but I don't know where
to look of how to troubleshoot the problem any further.
Any suggestions, advise, etc will be more than welcome.
