to add more information to the previous posts, if you want to use the
wireless interface while both the 'eth0' (ethernet) and the 'wlan0'
wireless interface are up at the same time and you use DHCP to obtain
the IP information, under SuSE, please add the following lines in your
'/etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-wlan0' file :
