Ok thanks for answer

Now I'm stll unable to connect by wi-fi; I'm using knetworkManager instead of
ndiswrapper and after install firmware files with install_bcm43xx_firmware

KwiFiManager tells he is conected with router but he is unable to detect an
acces point (IP locale)

A strange thing is that in yast->network-parameters->config-wlan0->hardware
kernel module is ssb instead of bcm43xx as with suse10.2
And command dhcpcd eth0 gives:

err, wlan0: timed out
warn, wlan0: using IPV4ALL address 169.254.57.89

And connection with internet is not possible

Any suggestion?
Thank you in advance
Michel

Hello,

Since I've upgraded Suse 10.2 to 11 on my
laptop,
network configuration became a mess, while
ifconfig gives:

interfaces wmaster0 and pan0 are not present
in the
network configuration of yast; and ndiswrapper is
unable to
create a new interface...

Does anybody know how to configurate such
hardware? To
be more precise I'm working on a laptop acer
Ferrari4000
serie, using a Broadcom BCM4318 AirForceOne 54g;
under
suse10.2 it worked (approximatively) with
ndiswrapper, but
how does it go with suse11?

Thank you in advance for any suggestion
Michel

pan0 seems to be some sort of software driver.
Its
manfacturer code
is in a range (16:) reserved
for private devices.

Your wlan0 is actually manufactured by Hon Hai
Precision
Ind. Co.,
Ltd. (probably under license).


Vmaster? I have no clue. The only reference
I've ever
seen has to do with
sound control in the linux kernel. Its almost
like network
setup is
picking up some
oddball devices an thinking they are network
cards.


Some hints about wmaster0:
http://linux.derkeiler.com/Mailing-Lists/Fedora/2007-11/msg04412.html
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=697807
http://osdir.com/ml/linux.drivers.ipw3945.devel/2007-12/msg00004.html

I'd ignore it.

As for pan0, that is usually a bluetooth device capable of
acting as a nic.
You might be able to turn that feature off on your
bluetooth since I don't
believe you will find much use for it.
