My new computer is an
HP 15s-eq2147 FHD RYZ5-5
16GB 512 SSD DOS
It has no cable connection to the internet, but only access via
WiFi. Installing Leap 15.3 was no problem, but so far I did not
manage to establish a WiFi connection.
Using Yast, I set up a wicked service with fixed address, getting
Device Name: wlan0
Configured with address 192.168.2.16/24 (acer.ariannuccia.zz)
Starting automatically on cable connection
I find it somewhat absurd that a cable connection is required even
for WiFi. Since I have no cable connection, I am looking for a work
around. Any idea?
The "Authentication Mode" offers these 5 options:
WEP - Open
WEP - Shared Key
On my router (192.168.2.1) there are these "Encryption type":
Unencrypted (not recommended)
WPA2 (very secure)
WPA / WPA2 (secure)
For avoiding problems with the correspondence of these methods, I
have selected "No Encryption" on my computer and "Unencrypted (not
recommended)" on my router.
But the connection does not work. Any attempt to ping the router
from the new computer is rejected with the reply:
connect: Network is unreachable
Any help would be welcome.
Thank you in advance and best regards,
