[opensuse] Wireless issue in 10.2

Hi All,

I've just put 10.2 (x86_64) on my laptop. During the installation, the
wireless network card (RT2500) was detected and configured correctly. The
network connection test passed at that point.

Subsequently, I cannot get the wi-fi to connect (no IP from DHCP, cannot ping
if I set a static address.) ifconfig reports:

wlan0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:11:09:9B:06:2C
UP NOTRAILERS RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:3 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0

wmaster0 Link encap:UNSPEC HWaddr
00-11-09-9B-06-2C-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00

TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
RX bytes:0 (0.0 b) TX bytes:0 (0.0 b)

and I get:

wlan0: cannot create symlink to default key

from dmesg when restarting the network.

So, what is wmaster0? Any ideas as to where to look for clues to solve this?

cheers
Dylan
