Hello openSUSE folks,
Just did a fresh install of openSUSE 11.3 on my Toshiba Satellite laptop
Everything works but my wireless connection.
I'm using Realtek provided driver for my Realtek RTL8191SE Wireless LAN
It worked perfectly in the previous openSUSE 11.2 installation.
I tried to troubleshoot why it isn't working in 11.3
When I execute
it gives me this type of message:
nl80211: 'nl80211' generic netlink not found
Failed to initialize driver interface
I'm using desktop kernel. May be something relevant to my case was
disabled in it?
Should I change it to the plain kernel?
Thank you in advance for any help or hints.
I also have a Toshiba Satellite with the same chip. The latest driver
from Realtek was installed manually by downloading it from the
product support site. WiFi cannot be activated using yast as an ip
address cannot be obtained. The only way is to remove all settings
from yast and to manually activate the connection using iwconfig and
Has anyone been able to activate the connection at boot and if so any
hints will be appreciated?
There is a solution to this problem after doing some research on
google. The drivers can be downloaded from Realtek's website.
Uncompress and run the usual make and make install commands. Edit the
"boot.local" file in /etc/init.d and add the following commands:
iwconfig wlan0 essid YourWifiEssid
dhclient -v wlan0
Using this technique, the wifi connection is up after the pc has
booted. The commands above can also be run from the command line. Type
in the essid of your router in place of "YourWifiEssid".
The Realtek drivers are available from:
under the Linux section.
