I have been struggling to configure my Wifi
connection. I understood
from previous threads that I have to remove NetworkManager.state and to
do rcnetwork restart to be able to configure the Wifi connection with
NetworkManager. This did not lead to success.
So now I intend to make a fresh 11.3 installation, remove
NetworkManager.state and do rcnetwork restart. Then I'll do a
NetworkManager guided install.
Can anybody tell me what's wrong in this approach?
Just curious, where did you read you need to remove
NetworkManager.state? And.. are you using Gnome or KDE?
Generally speaking - set up your network card to use NetworkManager if
it isn't already like that... and use the NetworkManager icon to
connect... this is of course assuming you've got a recognized WiFi
On my netbook using an Atheros card, I don't do anything special at
all... click the Network Manager icon, and follow it through to add a
WiFi access point.
I learned it from earlier threads.
I use KDE.
I do not understand why I don't get a NetworkManager icon at all.
May be that the trick?
check to see if you have Networkmanager installed. I think that if it
is installed, the program should be identified with its icon in the
start menu (Kmenu).
It is installed, but no icon
The next thing to check is to look in Yast under
settings>global options tab to see if your networking is configured to
use ifup, or network manager.
User controlled with NetworkManager
Next you need to go back to the overview tab and see if your wlan
appears in the list of devices. If it does, you need to edit it so that
the correct module is used to run the wlan.
In the overview tab appears; devicename wlan0
You should post to the list which wlan card you have.
I have a realtek
rtl8192se wireless card in my laptop. I am able to install the driver
for it to get the wlan working in opensuse 11.1, but the same driver
won't work in 11.3 for some reason. I had to reinstall 11.1 after
installing 11.3 to get the wireless to work.
The card is AR5BXB63 802.11bg NIC
